US $450 €352

Major European tour operators now face tougher competition than ever.

In order to thrive in the new distribution environment, tour operators are shaking up their old models and finding new ways to connect with travelers - migrating content and functionality online, offering mobile apps, and tailoring their strategies to the unique needs of the markets they serve.

Scandinavian Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Sc-oto_lg
US $995 €778

French Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Fr-oto_lg
US $995 €778

Online travel bookings in France are on a healthy growth tear, though growth will slow in the next few years as the nation's market nears maturity. Rail, airlines and online travel agencies made out especially well in 2012; tour operators continued to flail. Hotel bookings saw a minor increase - and the best-performing properties were confined to Paris and other urban centers, leaving most of the lodging market in a rut. The French Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition provides sizing and analysis for the total and online French travel markets by segment and channel, including mobile. In addition to a historical view, the report offers projections for all segments through 2015 and explores the evolution of market dynamics as travel companies - out of sheer necessity - race to develop multichannel distribution strategies.

German Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Ger-oto_lg
US $995 €778

Germany has remained Europe's bright star - and its largest travel market - during the region's fragile and uneven journey to economic recovery. While German travelers still prefer long trips, packaged tours, and offline bookings more than travelers in Europe's other major markets, the country's online bookings are having no trouble making headway. Independent hotels, constrained by fragmentation, are relying on online travel agencies for distribution, while airline and rail sales are making gains directly. Though Germany lags smaller markets in online penetration, the flip side of this phenomenon is that online distribution has plenty of room (and potential) to grow - especially in mobile bookings, which will skyrocket in the next three years.

The Italian Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition provides sizing and analysis of the total and online Italian travel markets by segment and channel.

U.K. Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Uk-oto_lg
US $995 €778

The U.K. has so far proven resilient in the face of Europe's economic unease. Though unusually high unemployment and the threat of other fiscal problems linger, U.K. consumers gained confidence as employment rates - and the summer weather - improved in 2012. Both online and overall travel bookings saw healthy growth for the year, and annual increases will remain steady through 2015. In addition, U.K. travelers - already an extremely tech-savvy group - are quickly adopting mobile as a travel searching and booking platform. While this development doesn't come close to threatening supplier dominance online, it is giving online travel agencies a new edge in hotel sales.
