Globus reports it has asked more than 3,000 recent travelers if they felt having free Wi-Fi on their motor coach was a useful perk. Of the responses received to date, 87 percent of travelers who had access to free Wi-Fi felt it was a useful tool and 61 percent took advantage of the complimentary Wi-Fi afforded to them on their coach.
Globus said the survey comes one year after Globus added free Wi-Fi on its state-of-the-art motor coaches in North America and Europe to its roster of tour benefits.
How are travelers using this complimentary Wi-Fi? According to Globus, 55 percent of recent travelers emailed and texted friends on vacation, while 35 percent used mobile phones and tablets to both capture and share photos and videos of their journey.
“Providing our travelers free, on-the-go access to technology while on vacation is a perk, but it’s also becoming a necessity,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. “People want to capture the excitement of the experiences they are enjoying in real-time. Complimentary Wi-Fi on our coaches in North America and Europe ensures they won’t have to wait to share their memories.”
Littleton, Colorado-based Group Voyagers, Inc. is the privately held company that markets and sells the Globus family of brands within the United States. Brands include: Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways.
