With the vast majority of travelers now planning and booking their holidays online, Sembo has created their own unique and data driven booking technology, aiming to disrupt the full process of how package holidays are produced, booked, marketed and distributed in the future.
Sembo has always sought to simplifying travel by combining powerful technology with great individual service, the development of the new booking platform is a milestone – not only for the company, but for the travel industry as a whole.
