Conversion Rate Optimization Services for Travel & Hospitality Brands
Build a Five-Star Digital ExperienceBook A Free Consultation
Do you remember when making travel arrangements required purchasing a travel guide? How about having to call a travel agent when booking a flight?
If you think about it, airlines, hotels and other travel businesses were among the first major consumer-facing industries to optimize by way of the Internet. What once required a lengthy paper trail and days of research and coordination, has become accessible with a few simple searches.
Regardless of how far the industry has come, today’s digital travelers aren’t tapering their expectations for booking travel. And while travel remains a high-consideration, high price purchase, customers still crave efficiency and relevancy out of their digital experiences.
Adding even more complexity, today’s travelers are also increasingly impulsive and on-the-go. A 2017 study by Google and Phocuswright suggests that more than 60% of U.S. travelers would consider an impulse trip based on a good hotel or flight deal. Additionally, a separate study by Travelport Digital found that 61% of travelers ‘nearly always’ or ‘sometimes’ use a smartphone app to book flights.
So, while booking hotels, airlines, cruises, rental cars and other travel-related experiences often require meticulous research, price comparisons and value assessments on the part of the customer, time is still of the essence.
After all, your customers can’t carpe diem if they never actually make a purchase.
