Our Experience

Introducing the Travel Tip Catcher

by Moderator May 2011 - last edited February 2013 by Community Manager

Exciting news! We're delighted to announce details of vtravelled's first app - the Travel Tip Catcher - now available as part of our brand new touchscreen inflight entertainment system on Beauty Queen and Mademoiselle Rouge, the first two A330s in Virgin Atlantic's fleet.

 

The vtravelled Travel Tip Catcher

The Travel Tip Catcher is a brilliantly simple way for our passengers to share and capture travel tips for all our destinations around the world. On your flight you'll be able to:

 

  • read tips for the destination you're flying to
  • write your own 140 character tips for other passengers
  • filter results by category
  • easily switch to any other destination in our network
  • rate your favourite tips, giving them the chance to appear on the new vtravelled.com

The Travel Tip Catcher will default to the destination you're flying to but you can read and write tips for anywhere on the Virgin Atlantic route network.

Lysette Gauna, Creative Director at Virgin Atlantic said "We saw a great opportunity to tap into the travel wisdom of our passengers whilst their trip was still fresh in their minds.  Who better to pass on tips than those who have just experienced the destination and who have some time on the flight to do so. This will hopefully prove to be a great resource for those passengers heading out who can read the tips throughout their flight as well as motivating them to share their own  insights on their return."

 

So next time you're onboard one of our brand new planes, be sure to check it out.

And if you're not flying with us, we encourage all Tweeters out there to share your travel gems. We're feeling generous at the moment and that means anything can happen if we find something we like...

Love this - fantastic idea.

Can't wait for this to be available on all routes. Will definitely participate when I next fly on the A330 - A great way to spend extra time on the flight reading the reviews!
