Online distribution has become an important channel for the European hotel industry. On average, we estimate that in 2013 already more than one out of five overnights was generated by Online Booking Agencies (OTA), mainly through Priceline (booking.com, Agoda), Expedia (incl. hotels.com, Venere) and HRS (incl. hotel.de, Tiscover) which together account for nearly 90% of this market.
These are some of the results of a joint survey conducted between January and April 2014 by 26 European hotel associations coordinated by HOTREC, the umbrella association of Hotels, Restaurants and Cafés in Europe, in collaboration with the Institute of Tourism (ITO) of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland Valais (HES-SO Valais) in Sierre.
