According to the new Zuji Online Travel Report for Q1 2006, travelers are booking hotels with more lead time than they were two years ago.

In Q1 2004, 42 percent of hotels were booked within the same week of check-in. Now, in Q1 2006, only 37% percent of hotels are booked within a seven day period.

Around one quarter (24%) of hotels were booked 30+ days in advance during Q1 2006, showing that many travelers throughout Asia Pacific book hotels online with long lead times.

Over 95 percent of hotel bookings made on Zuji sites during Q1 2006 were for stays of a week or less in duration (Australia: 97%, Hong Kong 97%, Singapore 98%). This trend has been consistent for the past two years.

Zuji is now an established place for travelers to find and book great value hotel rooms in cities around the world. Top hotel booking destinations mimic top flight destination bookings. The spread of international cities beyond Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and New Zealand shows that Zuji sites have become a source of great value for international and local hotels.
