Europe Travel Trends Report - 2016

  1. 1. 2016 Europe Travel Trends Report
  2. 2. 2 One-third of worldwide travellers report1 they’ll spend more on travel in 2016 than the year previous. Of those big spenders, Europeans dominate the list, with Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, and France all making the top 10. For any brand looking to reach European travellers as they search and book a trip, or spend while in-destination, these insights are intended to inform the targeting strategies and campaign activities to reach the right audience at the right moment—when they’re ready to engage. Our report looks at more than one billion travel intent signals from January 2015 through June 2016 in order to understand the behaviour of European travellers, including: • Most popular travel spots and shifts in popularity; • Top emerging and declining markets; • Travel planning and search behaviour by country; and • Average trip duration across Europe. Read on to understand the latest European travel trends and plan your most effective marketing campaigns yet. 1 TripAdvisor’s TripBarometer: Travel Trends 2016
  3. 3. 3 Europe Timing: Trip Duration Search TRIP DURATION SEARCHED BY COUNTRYEuropean travellers are highly diverse, and individual countries demonstrate significant variability in their travel planning behaviour. This is evident from looking at their trip duration. For example, people in Greece search for travel lasting an average of 5.4 days. In the Netherlands, travel planners look for longer-than-average trips, at just over a week, 8.7 days. Hotel marketers might consider tailoring upsell offers around trip duration propensity by country—a ‘6th night free’ deal might go further when targeted to Greek travellers vs. those coming from the Netherlands.

Who searches for the longest trips? 1 Monaco Armenia 2 Guernsey Netherlands 3 Isle of Man Russia 4 Faroe Islands Germany 5 Greece Belarus For full list, see Appendix AVERAGE TRIP DURATION 7 days
  4. 4. 4 Europe Timing: Lead Times Search LEAD TIME SEARCHED BY COUNTRYPlacing ads in front of in-market travellers requires you to first know how far in advance they’re looking. The average planning lead time for Europe as a whole is 73 days. However, it’s not enough to plan campaigns around the continental average. If your marketing campaigns target this average alone, you’d miss some audiences and be too early to effectively reach others. Lead times in Germany and France differ by nearly two weeks. The fact is that Germans are one of Europe’s earliest travel planners with a lead time of 80 days. France has a shorter pre-travel planning time of 67 days. These differences demonstrate that marketers looking to reach European travellers with the right message at the right time should work with data-driven partners who can accurately target based on planning behaviours compared with the actual date of travel.

Who searches the latest? 1 Ireland Kosovo 2 United Kingdom Azerbaijan 3 Iceland Albania 4 Faroe Islands Montenegro 5 Germany Armenia For full list, see Appendix AVERAGE LEAD TIME 73 days
  5. 5. 5 -2 +2 +3 Popular Searched Destinations for Europe: 2015 to 2016 European travel to major tourist destinations in Spain, Italy, the UK, Greece, and Portugal remain strong. The US and Canada are both top destinations that have seen an incremental lift in 2016—with strong economies and ties to Europe, they’re growing in popularity. Given the economic and political unrest in Russia, Turkey, and Egypt, it’s no surprise to see declining interest for Europeans. In the meantime, warm-weather destinations like Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Croatia, and New Zealand are picking up travellers.

  6. 6. 6 Conclusion The vast majority (93%) of European travel occurs intra-regionally. Yet, political and economic factors, as well as changing tastes of Europeans all impact how they plan travel. For example, even with the UK’s ‘Leave’ result on 23 June and the falling value of the Pound, we have not seen a drastic change in UK outbound travel intent. However, emerging markets, like Iceland and their creative stopover campaigns, are showing an increase in European travellers. Armed with these insights, you can navigate changing travel behaviours and plan your travel marketing campaigns with greater efficiency and effectiveness. NEED MORE TRAVEL INSIGHTS? Sign Me Up
