The purpose is the most important thing in the mobile app development because it will decide mobile app is needed or not for your business. You should decide whether you need app only to provide info, or it as a communication tool or to enable customers to book the service. When planning for it, focus more on user benefits.

After setting up the goal, then finding your targeted customers and their requirements is the next step. In a detailed study, I came to know that more than 70% of USA travelers book travel tickets through mobile friendly websites and mobile apps.
If you see 80% of travelers share their photos and tourist spot snaps with their friends and family through Facebook.

So get in touch with them to draw more bookings. This kind of research will help you to plan mobile app better.
Mobile app cost
Before starting to develop an app, you need to allocate or plan the budget and also return on investment, so many mobile app projects get stopped while even in developing stage because of lack of funds. Depending on the mobile features, the cost may increase or decrease. If you want your app should satisfy your customers, then you need to spend good money. To decrease the cost, you can eliminate some secondary features.
Finally, when you launched app to the market, users should feel wow about your app. The wow factor is a not a core part, but in travel like businesses, you need this to make them revisit. Also whenever customers need your service and you served them on time, it also makes them to revisit your business. Also, people always prefer for additional values for their money, so adding the discounts and attractive offers can create more value to your app. It delights them to revisit your app.
