Summer Travel Spending to Increase to $65 Billion
A recently released report from Adobe projects that consumers will spend $65 billion on travel between Memorial Day and Labor Day, up seven percent from last year.
Adobe's Digital Index Travel Report analyzed online visits to the websites of major United States travel, airline, and hotel sites, and social media mentions. The analysis found that twenty percent of all bookings are now coming from smartphones and tables, up from six percent last year. And, for the first time, more consumers are booking from their smartphones than from tablets. Research showed the top U.S. destinations for summer to include Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.; Paris, London, and Rome were top European destinations.
The report also analyzed when the best prices are available, in terms of both when to book and when to travel.
