There seems to be an app for every phase of travel – from inspiration to arrival. And as travel becomes more personalised, the potential of apps to influence our purchasing decisions, while creating merchandising opportunities for travel players is limitless.

The Tremendous Growth of Mobile Apps

Some of the numbers are truly staggering: 45% of travellers have used an app to help them plan travel, 61% of business travellers check-in to their flight via a mobile app, and 70% of travellers use a social app to share and relive their experiences.
