Website Functionality Benchmark, 2011: Online Travel Agencies
Forrester Applies Its Website Functionality Benchmark Methodology To The Sites Of Four Online Travel Agencies
December 5, 2011
Why Read This Report
In the highly competitive world of the four major online travel agencies (OTAs), Travelocity pulls ahead of the pack with its content and messaging functionality. Its site excelled in offering travelers a variety of useful booking information, including maps, photos, and videos. Still, all the OTAs tested still have bright spots in their own right, with each scoring positively on at least one section. Despite successes, new models of booking (Groupon, bloomspot) combined with a challenging economy and decline in online booking make a strong case for elevating the variety of content through the introduction of more robust functionalities.
