Your rainy day fund is full, you’ve arranged time off from work, and your new luggage has arrived.  Now what?  Time to plan out where to go and more importantly, where to stay.  Hotel? Bed and Breakfast? A vacation rental?  The choices are endless – 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 Travelocity alongside peer-to-peer online marketplace and homestay networks, which have risen in popularity in recent years. Positive experiences with alternate accommodations, like Airbnb or HomeAway,  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 with local options being highly popular.  Along with major national chains, OTA’s also offer thousands of unique, locally-owned properties that reflect the nature of the destination.

Did you know you could travel to:

  • A 300 year old hotel in Massachusetts
  • A Wisconsin motel dedicated to the recording of live music
  • A luxury treehouse hotel in Mexico
  • An Arizona motel with a room 200 feet underground

 

It is expected that 2018 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. On Wednesday, September 20th, Keith Nowak is available to you and your listeners to talk about the benefits of researching and booking your vacation on-line this holiday season as well as the changes and trends coming up this holiday season and next year.
