Travel is now booked easier and quicker than even before. This is thanks to the growth of online, which in 2020, will become the dominant channel for purchasing travel globally.
This research takes a snapshot of traveler behavior and sentiment in Argentina in 2019. We know that today’s travelers are in the driving seat when it comes to what, where, when and how they want to interact with travel brands online. It’s been a fascinating journey and it raises strategic questions for online travel companies that can have implications for competitiveness and relevance in a more crowded marketplace.
Questions such as: are you delivering enough screen real estate to provide inspiration that feeds the appetite for travel blogs and personal recommendations?
