“Travel planning is more than just searching for a flight and a hotel; it is a long process.”, said Heckmann during Phocuswright Conference when he was presenting about the habits of travelers. Heckmann is Google Travel’s vice president of product and engineering for Travel and Shopping. At the same conference, Expedia: a known name in the travel and hospitality industry revealed that the consumers make 38 visits on an average before making an actual booking. They further shared some interesting data about the travel consumer habits which shows that the journey of a traveler starts 45 days prior to the actual booking date and it goes through millions of click stream data points before making a booking for the trip. Also, they shared some interesting data collected under the research they made which shares: travelers doubled their time over internet surfing information a week prior to an actual booking date.
The travelers consume a lot of data and information by browsing different websites to ensure they get the best deals for their flight and hotel bookings. The aforementioned facts make it loud and clear that travel planning is a complex process made up of consuming and getting overwhelmed with a lot of information. Still, as a traveler, we feel the information is not enough or whether this deal is the best for me or not.
