In Online Travel, Size Matters

In Online Travel, Size Matters

In Online Travel, Size MattersFour Questions about the Future of Online Travel Agencies With Expedia swallowing Travelocity, Orbitz considering a sale, eDreams Odigeo in transition and Priceline stoking fears around the world, every online travel company and hotelier must confront a rising strategic reality: It's become a two-horse race, and the leaders are pulling ahead of the pack. Online travel agencies (OTAs) are the fastest growing distribution channel globally, and the two largest, Priceline and Expedia, outpace the market by no small margin. Combined gross bookings of the two jumped from 38% of global OTA sales in 2011 to 47% in 2013 (see Figure 1). And the continued, super-charged organic growth of Priceline's Booking.com, as well as Expedia's assumption of the Travelocity volume largely in 2014 (and Australia's Wotif), mean global share of the two leaders will only accelerate in 2014 and 2015.

U.K. Proves Perfect Storm for Mobile Bookings

The time is finally here: The majority of U.K. travelers own a mobile device, and travel companies have the mobile web and app experience down pat. And now, mobile bookings are beginning to flourish. By 2016, 25% of online bookings will be mobile, up from 12% just three years before. In Europe, the U.K. has the highest share of total web traffic from smartphones and tablet. Learn more about the U.K.'s mobile travel market with Phocuswright's U.K. Online Travel Overview Tenth Edition.

Mobile Travel Shopping Hits Tipping Point ? But PC Still Dominates Booking

Mobile devices have invaded the early travel planning funnel. During 2014, one third of U.S. leisure travelers used their smartphone to research where to go for an upcoming vacation while only slightly fewer, 32%, used the device to shop for travel products like flights and hotels. According to a new Innovation Edition publication, the growth in mobile travel shopping has been extremely impressive, up from 26% the prior year. While consumers might be breaking out their devices to research and plan their trips, the overwhelming majority still head to the PC (78%) when it comes time to book. Nevertheless, mobile booking is growing. One in four leisure travelers used their smartphone to book leisure in 2014, up from only 15% from 2013. "The industry has been very focused on mobile booking for quite some time now. And while that growth is exciting to watch unfold, it's only just part of the story," says Phocuswright's senior analyst, consumer research, Marcello Gasdia. "More...

Canada's Travel Industry Fails to Keep Pace as Travelers' Mobile Expectations Accelerate

Home to one of the first leaders in the global smartphone revolution, the storied maker of the BlackBerry messenger and smartphones, Canada has been somewhat sleepy when it comes to the mobile travel revolution. According to Phocuswright's Canadian Online Travel Overview Third Edition: 2012-2016 (a European and Global Edition publication), gross bookings via mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) remain well below that of the U.S., Europe and even Asia, with mobile as a share of all online bookings still in the low single digits. "When it comes to mobile, Canada's travel industry – with a few exceptions – has let the consumer pass it by. The Canadian traveler is already there," said Phocuswright's vice president, research, Douglas Quinby. "Four in five Canadian travelers own mobile devices and a significant minority of travelers use their devices across a range of travel activities." More than 40% of mobile travelers researched local activities or destinations on...

Europe's Online Travel Market Will Expand 7% in 2015, Despite Economic Challenges

A new European and Global Edition study published by Phocuswright finds that European online travel gross bookings will march forward at a brisk pace in 2015, despite continued economic sluggishness and geopolitical turbulence. Optimism over Europe's recovery experienced in the first half of 2014 proved short-lived, as the French economy continued its slowdown into 2015 and Greece's fiscal woes continued to weigh heavily on Euro Zone stability. Despite these challenges, online bookings expanded by 8% in 2013 and will continue to climb at a similar pace through 2016, according to Phocuswright's European Online Travel Overview Tenth Edition. "While growth in the total travel market has slowed, there is still ample opportunity to shift market share between Europe's many travel intermediaries and suppliers," states Luke Bujarski, director, research at Phocuswright. Intense competition driven by disruptive innovation across all the major travel segments including air and...

Sputtering European Economy Halts Holiday Spending Recovery

After climbing out from the depths of the global economic recession, Europe appeared to be on track for a lasting recovery. But despite some signs of progress, the region's economic rollercoaster continued in 2014, amid fears of a renewed slowdown in the region's largest economies. Branded as Europe's growth engine, Germany sputtered in the second quarter as the country's gross domestic product (GDP) contracted. Add to that geopolitical turmoil and deflation concerns, and it is clear that Europeans have plenty to be concerned about. According to a new European and Global Edition publication, consumer travel trends for 2014 are mixed, but positive indicators remain. Although travel incidence fell in France and the U.K., a larger share of German travelers took a leisure trip versus the previous year. And while Europeans in all three markets took fewer trips, they spent more, making cutbacks among those who did travel largely symbolic. Consumer travel trends reflect a varied...
