HOTWIRE PRESIDENT HENRIK KJELLBERG - 2017 WILL BE THE “YEAR OF CHOICE” FOR U.S. TRAVELERS
Your rainy day fund is full. You’ve arranged for time off from work. Your new luggage has arrived. But now what. Where to go and more importantly, where to stay? Hotel? Bed and Breakfast? Homestay rental? Air bnb? The choices keep growing – and that is a good thing.
The landscape for consumers to book travel lodging is continuing to evolve thanks to online travel agents (OTAs) like Hotwire.com alongside peer-to-peer online marketplace and homestay networks, which have risen in popularity in recent years.
Positive experiences with alternate accommodations, like Airbnb, are becoming more mainstream. This has helped to increase consumer confidence in booking different types of trips. These growing options have also resulted in a greater supply of available hotel rooms. This surplus is good news for travelers as the rates to secure great lodging will be lower in 2017 than 2016.
In fact, it is expected that 2017 will be “the year of choice” for booking travel lodging. This is exciting news since it will enable more U.S. travelers to be “slightly adventurous” and allow consumers to take even more trips.
Henrik Kjellberg will talk about the benefits of researching and booking your vacation on-line this holiday season as well as the changes and trends coming up in 2017.
