As planning for the summer travel season heats up, American Express announces a new arrival: Amex Trip Planner. The new digital pilot service helps build custom travel itineraries for U.S. Consumer and Business Card Members, making planning a trip from beginning to end a personal and seamless experience.
With 62% of respondents in the American Express Travel: 2022 Global Travel Trends Report* saying they will take between two and four trips this year, there are a lot of dream vacations about to be had. And while many travelers’ top destinations are the same – including London, Paris, New York, Rome, Atlanta, Athens, among others – their experiences will be unique. For example, 79% of consumers in our travel report say they are most looking forward to traveling with their family in 2022, and 58% of Millennials say they would be willing to travel solo to visit a top spot on their list.
All-inclusive resorts are also top of mind, according to our travel trends report. Through Amex Trip Planner, eligible Card Members will find personalized experiences through American Express Travel’s curated collection of hotels, Fine Hotels + Resorts®, including Paradisus Grand Cana in the Dominican Republic, Miraval Austin Resort & Spa in Texas, Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Mexico, among others.
Through Amex Trip Planner, Card Members can create an all-encompassing digital itinerary that matches their preferences and interests. The online trip planning tool can be found on AmexTravel.com and Card Members will be able to search for a curated selection of recommended hotels, dining options, and exciting experiences and activities according to their destination. For further personalization, travelers can filter based on budget, and options are presented within the destinations’ surrounding area and nearby neighborhoods.
“We want to make the experience of planning the perfect trip the most inspiring and seamless experience it can be for our Card Members. The focus should be on the magic of the trip, not the efforts of planning it. With Amex Trip Planner, we’re leaning into innovation to do just that. Our Card Members have a one-stop shop to explore and plan their flights, hotels, dining, and activities, offering recommendations tailored to their preferences, along with features to optimize travel-time and sequence activities,” said Ali Driesman, Vice President, Business Development, Amex Digital Labs.
