In 2012 around 25 percent of travel searches were from mobile devices. That number is predicted to jump to 40 percent in 2013. One New York-based travel agency, HeBS, is already generating nearly 40 percent of their traffic from a smartphone or tablet. And we’re discovering that even when consumers have the choice between a mobile device and a laptop or desktop, they are opting for the mobile device 77 percent of the time.
PhoCusWright estimates that 20 percent of online travel dollars will be generated by mobile devices, accounting for $25.8 billion in sales.
