The mobile majority in travel

The mobile majority in travel | Tourism Innovation |

There is a clear mobile majority in travel across all demographics for the first time ever, says the latest Travel Technology Survey from Phocuswright. The report, which covered habits in 2014, found that smartphone penetration has reached the majority in all demographics, with 76% of those aged 55-64 and 58% of those 65 and older owning a smartphone. This milestone heralds the achievement of the true mobile majority - travel brands can now count on nearly all travellers to have access to a smartphone. Tablets are also more popular than ever, with 6 out of 10 travellers now possessing one, up from 44% in 2013. Laptops remain less popular than smartphones among travellers, with 79% likely to own a laptop compared with the 87% that own a smartphone. Click here to learn more.

Valuable insight from Jeannie Walters clearly defining the different areas that will impact the #customer #experience.

The end goal is the last point:

"There will be several times in 2014 when you’ll shake your head in disbelief at how wonderful something is. You’ll post images on social media about the best ones, and rave to friends about the corner store/the customer service rep/the bank who showed you they care."

We are all looking forward to such positive experiences.

Any additional trends you would anticipate?
