Jetabroad: Online Travel Takes Off in Australia
LONDON, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
According to Jetabroad more Australians than ever are using the internet to make travel plans; the company is not surprised by this trend as the web is the easiest and most affordable way to find cheap flights.
Jetabroad, a global online flight specialist and travel agency, is seeing a significant increase in the number of Australians who use their service to book flights to exotic destinations around the world. Over the past year and a half the company has seen many people arrange their first holidays through the web: Jetabroad says this shows that Aussie travellers are becoming increasingly web savvy.
Independent research from PhoCusWright, a market research company, has demonstrated a similar trend across the entire industry in Australia. Their study shows that traffic to travel websites was 30 per cent higher in 2010 than the year before. The report also predicted that growth would continue over the coming years as travel takes on a larger role in the nation's web based economy.
Darin Walters, MD of Jetabroad, comments: "2010 was a fantastic year for us at Jetabroad and for the industry as a whole, as many more people chose to book flights to Thailand, Europe and other great spots through the web. This growth spanned all demographics and included many who ventured into the world of online travel for the first time."
Walters continues: "The increase of traffic online is not altogether surprising as Australia has a very high internet population and Aussies are always keen to explore the world. Beyond that, the internet provides convenience alongside great deals making it a natural place for travel planning. Indeed, if you want to arrange a flight to New York or London it only makes sense to do so online."
