EyeforTravel Infographic & Survey Report: Marketing & Mobile Strategies to Engage the Connected Traveller

Find out why 74% of the respondents picked mobile investment as a big winner for the travel industry.

With research findings showing us that 148.3 million bookings were made online last year, and 65% of same-day hotel reservations were made via a smartphone, according to eMarketer.

Currently there’s a lot of room for disruption in travel and the stakes are high. The prize will go to brands that can successfully offer a seamless connected experience. Partnerships, data and technological innovation will decide who wins and who loses out.

“A smartphone is a critical tool for the travel industry, particularly in terms of understanding passenger patterns for booking, search and on trip decisions,” said Shreya Ganapathy, Head of Content and Marketing at EyeforTravel. “When you consider how the mobiles have changed the way people interact with brands, its time travel brands follow the change, but what’s the right digital strategy is what we are trying to get answers to.”

So with this growth at stake and shift to mobile, data and technology to create the seamless travel experience we at EyeforTravel did a survey in January 2017 to give us an outlook at what impacts customer experience, online marketing and mobile investment, and the impact of changes on the travel landscape.

Artificial intelligence, text based communication, VR and application development also showing increase from our last year’s survey.  Biometric tools and robotics are not the main focus for our respondents for 2017.
