Our twice-monthly Skift Trends Report series takes a deep dive into industry trends across various sectors of travel.

With our latest report, The Rise of the Silent Traveler: Reaching Out to the Mobile-First Travel Consumer, Skift is proposing a brand new model for looking at the mobile-first travel consumer.

The silent traveler is the consumer who turns to his mobile device first, seeking a solution to in-trip challenges that used to be the primary domain of customer-service staff. In this report, we examine the changes that customers like this are creating across numerous verticals in the industry — and we look at the important opportunities they present to travel brands that can adapt to their dynamic and evolving expectations.

  • The silent traveler defined: who they are, what they want, how they travel.
  • How brands respond to the silent traveler: from technology to customer-service strategies, how the industry is reaching out to the digitally savvy and self-reliant consumer.
  • New approaches to the brand-consumer conversation: the silent traveler isn’t so silent, after all.
