It is time for travel companies to start thinking in an entirely different way – as tech companies! 

That’s how deeply integrated digital technology is throughout the entire travel process from research to booking, the journey and user reviews. But where rampant acceleration is happening is in how voice search is shifting customer behaviour and expectations.

Consider this common hypothetical scenario. A user opens a browser and taps in ‘cheap flights from Boston to London’. Needless to say, what appears first in search are the ten blue links from Google. After some surfing, the user is then drawn to a metasearch engine like Skyscanner, Kayak or Momondo, where flights can be filtered by date and price. Here the cheapest deal is, let’s say, from Norwegian Airlines, and as the meta aggregates offers from various providers, the user again opens multiple links to deals from online travel agencies (OTAs).

‘Why more women in computing is better for both women and computing’ was the title of an interesting LinkedIn post from Melinda Gates last month. It is also a subject close to EyeforTravel, and so it was heartening to hear from Paul English last week that women are integral to the team at Lola, his AI-human powered app that relaunched last week with a focus on business travel.

The findings of EyeforTravel’s latest Chinese Travel Consumer Report 2017-2018, which surveyed over 2,000 consumers, are bad news for the direct booking charge.

According to the report 77.5% of web bookings are made through an online travel agent website, rising to 81.2% for app bookings. Only 17.6% of travellers booked direct through a website, and 12.9% used the airline app.

Brilliant, intense, generous and erratic is how the New York Times described Paul English in an article published in October 2016. But in an interview this week with the former CTO and cofounder of Kayak, who is now hoping to conquer business travel with chat app Lola, he seems a modest, honest, if determined, kind of bloke.
