Phocuswright's French Online Travel Overview Eighth Edition provides data, analysis and insight into the French travel industry, and projects future performance through 2014. The report covers French travel market dynamics, and contains detailed information on all key segments, including air, hotel, car rental, rail, tour operators and online travel agencies.
Although there are fears that France's economic recovery may be petering out, consumer confidence remains high. In contrast to much of Europe, France exited the recession in the spring of 2009, but has experienced little growth (less than 2% annually) since. Despite this economic malaise, the French travel market continued to grow in 2012, led by double-digit online bookings growth. Online growth is projected to slow through 2014 as dominant players reach maturity and competitors struggle to catch up.

Phocuswright's European Online Travel Overview Eighth Edition presents the findings from proprietary research conducted in 2012 on the European leisure and unmanaged business online travel markets. This effort was undertaken as a multipart project to assess the European travel market as a whole, and includes in-depth analyses of six individual European markets: France, Germany, the U.K. (including Northern Ireland), Italy, Spain and Scandinavia.
To evaluate the markets, Phocuswright interviewed executives from over 90 Europe-based airlines, hotels, tour operators, rail companies, OTAs, traditional travel agencies and travel technology companies. European estimates and projections include the first 15 European Union (EU) countries, as well as Switzerland and Norway.
Unless otherwise indicated, all Internet sales are based on gross bookings – that is, the total transaction value of the products sold online in Europe – for leisure and unmanaged business travel sites (i.e., consumer-facing websites that sell to individuals, including unmanaged business travelers purchasing outside of corporate travel policies). They also include sales from non-EU travel suppliers that are transacted via EU-based OTAs. Corporate online booking systems such as Sabre GetThere and Amadeus e-Travel are excluded from this analysis.
All financial information is based on data obtained from company interviews or publicly available financial reports. Estimates and projections are based on executive interviews, third-party information, web traffic results, economic indicators, market trends and Phocuswright analysis.
Phocuswright distribution channel estimates and projections are based on the local market results of pan-European OTAs, the results of local OTAs, and total gross sales reported by local suppliers. Data is actual for 2010-2011 and projected for 2012-2014. In Figures, totals may not always add to 100% due to rounding. Non-hospitality suppliers' online sales are assigned to the market in which the supplier is headquartered. For example, all online business generated by Lufthansa worldwide is associated with Germany, while all Air France-KLM online revenue is associated with France. IAG airlines (British Airways and Iberia) are an exception, as their figures are reported individually. Hospitality suppliers' gross bookings are based on revenues generated by properties in the country source market. Room revenue for hotels and guesthouse/bed and breakfast establishments are included. Tour operator sales are assigned to their respective source markets. For example, TUI Travel's U.K. online sales are assigned to the U.K. market and Thomas Cook's German online sales are assigned to the German market.
Total market calculations exclude OTA gross bookings as well as a portion of tour operator gross bookings – these excluded bookings are assigned under supplier segments (e.g., airline, hotel).
All currencies are in euros (€) unless otherwise indicated (as in the U.K. chapter) and converted at the average rate for the period they represent. References to the "travel market" are understood to cover the total travel market, and "traditional travel agency" refers to principally offline travel agencies.
