For travel agencies, SMS messaging allows you to connect with travellers on a one-to-one, or one-to-many basis, yet still be personal. How can that be? People guard their mobile numbers and only share them with the people or businesses they really want to hear from. It's their personal number after all, and they won't hand it out to just anyone.
Have you ever found yourself rolling your eyes as you typed the same text into yet another SMS message? Businesses and organisations often send out the same messages at different times to different people.
