The percentage of American travelers who book exclusively online plateaued last year at 39% after jumping in 2012 from 32%, according to Phocuswright’s annual U.S. Consumer Travel Report. The figure is consistent with a Phocuswright report last November, which estimated that online bookings this year will have plateaued at 45% of the $347 billion that Americans will spend on travel this year. The news may be doubly good for travel agents, as the U.S. Consumer Travel Report estimates that the number of American adults who traveled last year for leisure surged 30% from 2009’s recession-era lows, to 140 million. Last year, two-thirds of U.S. adults took a trip at least 75 miles from home that involved either a flight or paid lodging, up from 61% in 2012. And many of those travelers are taking more complex trips. The average U.S. household spent $3,441 on travel last year, up 3.9% from 2013 and marking a 27% surge from 2009. The percentages of traveling Americans who took both dynamic and prepackaged travel tours are on the rise. Get the full story at Travel Weekly
