#1 Problem

In fact, nobody provides global information support for international tourists and online travel companies.

#2 Aggregators & OTA

None of the thousands of sites provide informational support for international tourists.

#3 Travel technology providers landscape

No single source of global and structured tourist information for companies.

#4 What are progressive startups doing?

Two clones of Airbnb, flights, hotels, tours, buses. There is no informational support.

#5 Wikipedia, Tripadvisor

We are constantly told that all information can be found on Tripadvisor or Wikivoyage, you just need to spend a little more time.

This is magnificent! After all, hotels and air tickets can also be searched without aggregators. But for some reason, it is more convenient for everyone to use the aggregator than to check hundreds of hotels separately.

#6 Facebook

76% of travelers use social media while traveling. There is a geolocation tags and information pages. Wikipedia is the provider of information.

#7 Instagram

There is a trend of instagrammable places, and geolocation tags for photos. But information pages are completely useless.

#8 Here’s our favorite!

FOR TOURISTS

Everyone thinks that Google provides information support. But Google is just a search engine, an aggregator of information.

“People don’t just want faster access to information—they want better, more personalized experiences,” said Oliver Heckmann, Google’s VP of engineering for travel and shopping.

FOR TRAVEL COMPANIES

The Google search engine has ceased to be a convenient service provider for online travel companies.

May 14, 2019 Google has taken a huge next step [google.com/travel/], putting all the pieces together, by including flights, hotels, packages, and trip-planning tools on a edicated website and in Google Search and Google Maps. Google’s foothold in travel just got even larger. [skift.com]

Google took in $7.2 billion in revenue from travel advertisers globally in the 12 months that ended September 30, 2019. Some $5.8 billion of that total came from Booking Holdings and Expedia Group. [skift.com]

#11 Summary

Hotels and flights – the main purpose of 1.5 billion international tourists?

All these trillions of dollars are generated by ordinary people who want relaxation and experience.

Instead of building apps and websites with a fanatical focus on traveler experience, online travel agencies have embraced confusion and pressure as a guiding ethos. Aggressive advertising and the imposition of services in ways that deceive users.

People (tourists) are the main asset of the project, initially and forever. The tourism market may change. Business models, processes, laws can change, new booking services appear and disappear. But people will always travel and need informational support.

1.5 billion international tourist arrivals were recorded in 2019, globally [unwto.org]. Every day, millions of tourists spend time searching for exactly the same information. Any tourist outside age, religion, gender and education asks the same questions. The next day, everything repeats.

A study conducted by Expedia found that 68% of travelers using a search engine to research destinations. That percentage drops precipitously to just 8% when travelers get to the booking stage. Everyone knows where to look for hotels or flights.

Furthermore, counter-intuitively, travel sites don’t make it easy to plan a trip. Most travel websites “are optimized for conversion, not for planning”. [askwonder.com]

Nearly 9 out of 10 travelers expect their travel provider to share relevant information while they are on their trip. [Google]

Google data shows that travel related searches which include ‘tonight’ and ‘today’ have grown by more than 519% in the past five years. [condorferries.co.uk]

American, British, and Canadian travelers visit 120 to 160 travel sites before booking a trip, 72% are researching destinations. Prior to booking, they visit an average of 290 total websites across multiple devices over a 45-day period. [Expedia]
