Editor's Notes

  1. Introduce myself Dallas office
  2. We live in a world dominated by mobile devices. As we’ll see, the desktop is not going away, but its role is less and less present as mobile’s foothold increases. Mobile use isn’t just while on the go either – think about how many times you’re sitting on the couch checking your smartphone….
  3. An Ad Age report from earlier this year indicates that mobile ad spending is set to double desktop ad spending by 2017. This signals a continued shift in where consumers – especially travelers – will be consuming online content.
  4. TripAdvisor’s July 2015 comScore showed that mobile overtook desktop as the dominant environment our users employ to come to TripAdvisor.
  5. We’re going to look at what we call the Traveler Life Cycle; it outlines the typical TripAdvisor travel lifecycle that starts months out from the actual date of travel, and as the graphic indicates, is quite cyclical.
  6. We’ll also be looking at a lot of data from TripAdvisor’s TripBarometer study. TripBarometer is a Twice Annual Study conducted on behalf of TripAdvisor by an independent research firm. TripBarometer reaches 40,000-50,000 travelers and hoteliers around the world. The study reveals Motivations behind travelers’ vacation choices The emotional differences at various states of a vacation and post-trip
  7. In a 2015 TripBarometer study, we introduced the Connected Traveler. Connected Travelers are travelers who have used their smartphone to plan or book travel. And reaching these Connected Travelers is a big opportunity for destinations. Our TripBarometer Connected Traveler report shows that more and more travelers are planning and booking travel on their mobile devices. Findings from TripBarometer show that smartphones are now an essential travel companion. How prevalent is mobile usage for planning and enjoying travel? Then take a look at these insights based on TripBarometer survey responses from more than 40,000 travelers and hoteliers around the globe. You’ll be better prepared to reach the lucrative Connected Travelers segment, or travelers who are keen on planning and booking travel on their smartphone. Connected Travelers care more about your reviews and ratings than amenities and promotions. Not only do Connected Travelers put more emphasis on reviews and ratings compared to other travelers, but they even care more about them than other booking drivers. In fact, here’s a sample of what travelers find very important when choosing where to book: Ratings/scores on review sites Connected Travelers: 59% Overall travelers: 53% TripAdvisor reviews Connected Travelers: 58% Overall travelers: 53% Recommendations from friends Connected Travelers: 49% Overall travelers: 45% Accommodation amenities Connected Travelers: 44% Overall travelers: 40% Promotions or discounts Connected Travelers: 39% Overall travelers: 36% - See more at: https://www.tripadvisor.com/TripAdvisorInsights/n2643/drive-mobile-bookings-these-tripbarometer-insights#sthash.gJbGyH8R.dpuf
  8. So, let’s take a look at the planning and booking stage. We’ll spend most of our time here, as this is often the most important stage of the travel process for many of you. Most travelers start planning trips 3-4 months prior to travel and start booking 1-2 months before they go. Businesses estimate the majority of accommodation bookings are made 1-2 weeks before departure. Three-quarters of travelers use TripAdvisor as a source of inspiration for vacations; it is the most influential source, closely followed by word-of-mouth. Price is the most important factor when it comes to accommodation choices, though businesses perceive online reviews to have the bigger impact.
  9. In the Pre-Trip Phase of the Traveler Life Cycle
  10. A comscore study of a panel of their travel transactors showed that 50% of transactors visited TripAdvisor on their path to purchase, and that half that visited TripAdvisor did a considerable amount more research in terms of the number of sites, page views, minutes spent, and days taken to purchase.
  11. Here’s a glimpse of year over year growth of mobile device use in the stages of trip planning & booking according to Phocuswright’s 2014 Traveler Technology Survey: 35% of travelers use a smartphone for destination selection - an increase from 25% in 2013 31% of travelers use a smartphone for travel shopping – up 6 percentage points from 2013 27% of travelers use a smartphone for booking – up from 16% in 2013 In the meantime, desktop remains pretty flat with 75-80% of travelers selecting, shopping, and booking online. Note the consistent decrease in desktop use from 2013 to 2014 however.
  12. PhocusWright’s mobile travel landscape report shows a significant jump in Mobile travel bookings – it forecasts a 390% growth rate in mobile travel bookings from 2012-2016, which while impressive, is nothing compared to the 5729% forecast growth for China!
  13. Connected Travelers have certain amenities they look for when they travel. Let’s check those out.
  14. 64% of connected travelers want hotels to provide power adpters so they can charge their devices. After all, all of that mobile research can kill a battery. 49% of accommodations provide these.
  15. Of greater importance is the ability to book and check in via their mobile devices.
  16. How does booking activity compare up for the connected traveler between desktop and mobile? Desktop still takes the majority of booking, but mobile is a close second
  17. Connected Travelers care more about reviews and ratings than amenities and promotions. Not only do Connected Travelers put more emphasis on reviews and ratings compared to other travelers, but they even care more about them than other booking drivers. In fact, here’s a sample of what travelers find very important when choosing where to book: Ratings/scores on review sites Connected Travelers: 59% Overall travelers: 53% TripAdvisor reviews Connected Travelers: 58% Overall travelers: 53% Recommendations from friends Connected Travelers: 49% Overall travelers: 45% Accommodation amenities Connected Travelers: 44% Overall travelers: 40% Promotions or discounts Connected Travelers: 39% Overall travelers: 36%
  18. Let’s take a look at during the trip

  24. The Post-Trip phase is when travelers are home, and are sharing their experiences with others through submitting reviews, posting to Social Media, and word of mouth. It’s also a surprising place where trip inspiration
  25. According to the 2014 TripBarometer Psychology of Travel Report, travelers return home from a trip feeling more tolerant, interested in learning something new, and with a desire to explore their own city more. Some will also focus more on relationships and spirituality.
  26. An even more interesting statistic uncovered from the Psychology of travel study is that 2 in 3 travelers are prompted to start booking another trip upon returning.
  27. Let’s shift gears to another incredibly important and rapidly growing part of our business: mobile.
