iSeatz’ last report reveals interesting findings for tourist stakeholders

According to iSeatz last survey, 81% of travelers admit to book T&A during their last trip.
The breakdown highlights that day trips, excursions and sightseeing tours (42%), visiting museums, galleries or cultural attractions (30%) and outdoor activities (28%) are the most popular.

Late decision :

Even more interesting, the study reveals that the stage at which these in-destination activities are booked varies significantly. For both tours and activities (including snorkeling, sightseeing tour or relaxing experience) and usual free-sale activities (such as museum, zoo, theme park or monument), most were booked while the consumer was within the destination and, for the most part, on the day of the activity itself.

As a conclusion, it seems that any tourism stakeholder needs to be present at each of the journey touch-points, with engaging content adapted to each context. Growing Inflight advertising opportunities are one of the most effective touch-points due to passenger’s state of mind at this stage of his journey.

More and more tourists are informed and program their trip and activities alone. However, traveling is not done in a linear way, and the buying of impulse after being subjected to an advertisement reflects this trend well. Tourists want to experience unique local experiences and do unusual activities.
