U.K. Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Uk-oto_lg
US $995 €812

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.

Spanish Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Sp-oto_lg
US $995 €812

Spain's economy has been mired in recession for over five years. As unemployment hit a new high in 2013, consumer confidence hit a new low - and dragged travel demand down with it. Because Spain is largely an inbound market, segments that rely heavily on foreign visitors - such as hotel and car rental - are withstanding the downturn more deftly than air and rail, which depend more on domestic travelers. Despite stagnation in the overall travel market, online travel bookings are on the rise and will continue their upward trajectory through 2015.

French Online Travel Overview Ninth Edition

Fr-oto_lg
US $995 €812

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.
