Skift Take

Digital has fundamentally changed the way we do business – and the travel industry is on a digital journey all of its own.

This sponsored content was created in collaboration with a Skift partner.

To gain an understanding of the ever-evolving digital landscape, Fusion spoke with 110 European travel executives in its new report, The Digital Journey: Benchmarking the Current State of Digital Travel.

The report looks at ways the travel industry is responding to some of it’s biggest challenges by offering critical insights on e-commerce objectives for travel companies, data analytics to gain valuable insights on customer behavior and purchase performance, increase retention by providing direct customer value as well as evaluate the ancillary approach. More than simply laying out challenges, the report also seeks to benchmark the industry’s response to better impact future decisions.

With the help of 110 senior travel executives across Europe this report brings added insights for travel companies by providing relevant priority indicators for the next 12 months of which Mobile App Marketing (23%) and Customer Acquisition (26%) have made the top of the list.

Competition amongst travel companies is hotter than ever, and in the digital age the most successful companies will be the ones who use a data-driven mindset to build a relationship with their customer that will ensure a return trip. There’s a lot of room for improvement here with over 60% of respondents in the report admitting to a growing need for better solutions.
