Lonely Planet has now made its travel content available to travellers via voice devices. Launching on the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, travellers can now ask Lonely Planet to help them plan their trip without lifting a finger.
Travellers can access Lonely Planet’s expert advice and recommendations to tens of thousands of places covered by Lonely Planet’s writers on the ground. By asking their device ‘let me talk to Lonely Planet’, travellers can select from help with planning their trip, or to hear the best place to be in the world today. The trip planning experience allows travellers to hear Lonely Planet’s introduction to a destination, the best times to visit and top insider tips to make the most of their trip. Asking for the best place to be today will see users receive a wanderlust-inducing location suggestion, selected by Lonely Planet’s experts for every day of the year, due a particular event, wildlife occurrence, weather conditions or how to beat the crowds.
This most recent addition to Lonely Planet’s consumer offering is the next part of the brand’s digital transformation.
Lonely Planet is now available on Google Home – simply by asking the Assistant “Ok Google, let me talk to Lonely Planet” and as a skill on Amazon Alexa – simply by asking Alexa to talk to Lonely Planet or finding the Lonely Planet skill in the Alexa app.
So now, save time on research and focus on travel.
