  7. 7. Who are the Spontaneous Travelers? Opportunistic deal seekers ● “the person who just wants a bed” is a big portions of this segment ● Dont care about securing the exact type of room they want with all the extras (breakfast, view, wifi etc). ● Excited by the Risk involved to snatch the deals Millennial ‘Wanderlust’ travelers ● Like getting lost, doing something on a whim and experiencing something new. ● The ultimate way to plan on the fly is via Smartphone. Rely a lot on "near me" or "explore nearby" options ● Crowdsource planning via Social media questions Typical Traits • Travel is not viewed as Luxury but more as Necessity • Booking a flight with just a few days out • Reserving a hotel only after arriving at a destination • Vacation planning is not an enjoyable experience but causes more headaches than tans. • They think that something is lost when you can anticipate - almost script -- nearly every component of the travel experience "Looking for a restaurant in Paris? Put it on Facebook and you may hear back in minutes" Thrive on ‘Last Minute’

  9. 9. Micro-Moments  Occur when someone wants to find something out  Happens throughout the customer journey  Start when people begin dreaming of a trip.  Happen across planning, booking, and even during the actual traveling  When these moments happen, user reach for the device nearest for answers If your brand isn't there for the moments that mattered in this journey, you missed out on Amy For travelers, these moments fall into four categories: i. I-want-to-get-away ii. I-want-this-trip-to-be-perfect iii. I-want-to-book-it iv. I-want-to-make-the-most-of-it Map closely to the typical stages in travel: dreaming, planning, booking, and experiencing.
  10. 10. Micro-Moments – in Travel planning I want to get away moments: Dreaming Moments • moments when people start thinking about the next vacation • Search for things like: "What to do in [destination]?" and "Where is [destination]?“ • Checking places out on YouTube etc I want this trip to be perfect moments: Planning Moments • moments when people narrow down exactly where to go and when • figuring out all the logistical details. • get to know how long it takes to get there, how much it could cost, best travel times etc I want to Book it moments: Booking Moments • Critical moments: when people put their dollars behind their decisions. • Need to remove every unnecessary step in the purchasing process from micro-moments • Example: A search on google -> book on google; TripAdvisor ‘Instant’ bookings I want to make the most of it moments: Experiencing Moments • moments when people are at their destinations. • consumer's behavior is about overcoming unfamiliarity with their current surroundings. • Mobile queries per user from hotel are on the rise with many including the phrase "near me.“ • looking either for a place to stay ("hotels near me") or something to eat or drink ("food near me," "breakfast near me," "restaurants near me," "bars near me") Be a Source of Inspiration Be a Travel guide Be a Booking Engine Be a Mobile Concierge
