Can Big Data Help Us Travel Better?

Can Big Data Help Us Travel Better? | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
There are hundreds of hotel booking sites online. They all have their own method of matching customers with options. There are basic options, like how many bedrooms for less than $200, and users will still end up searching through several pages before finding the right offer. Generic offers and bad results may be a thing of the past with big data. Travelers only care about having a good trip, and companies leveraging big data are going to make customers very happy.

Booking behaviours of UK, German and French business travellers | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

A GBTA Foundation survey of business travellers based in Europe's three largest business travel markets - the United Kingdom, Germany and France - shows that 3 out of 5 travellers in each country booked a business trip through a traditional channel while a similar share used an alternative channel in the past year. Of those who had access to a corporate online booking tool, roughly four out of five used a traditional channel while about half used an alternative channel in the same period. The survey, Booking Behaviour: The Business Traveller's Perspective, also revealed differences by company size and travel policy. Find out more.

An Uber Point of View on Airbnb 

An Uber Point of View on Airbnb  | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
As of this writing, my home city of Toronto has been locked in a bitter, years-long feud between the established taxi
companies and Uber, with legislation moving back and forth through the halls of municipal government. The taxis'
position is that Uber drivers don't have to go through anywhere near the same number of legal hoops (read: upfront
expenses) in order to serve customers, all while Uber drivers simply keep on driving.

Korea as global tourism destination

Korea as global tourism destination | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it
International tourism has rapidly expanded over the past 60 years to become one of the fastest growing sectors of the world economy. The year 2015 was yet another record-breaking year for global tourism. The U.N. World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) reported that international tourist arrivals grew by 4.4 percent in 2015 to reach a whopping 1,184 million. The total impact of the tourism sector on the world economy in 2014 was approximately $7,580 billion, or 9.8 percent of world GDP. As the economic outlook for the near future remains bleak, the robust performance of the tourism sector provides the global economy with much-needed vitality and thus greatly contributes to worldwide economic growth and job creation.
