It seems like just a few years ago the BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India and China – were expected to break records in travel growth. Led by an expanding middle class with a sense of adventure, the combination of demographics, financial means and technology were to catapult emerging markets into online travel history. But some regions such as Latin America have not yet reached their potential, while others have thrived. What challenges still need to be met for travel e-commerce to reach its potential around the world?
