Expedia has released its Q1 2022 Travel Trend Report featuring global traveler insights from the Group’s first-party data and custom research, along with examples from travel marketers around the world.
One of the highlights of the report is the surge in travel searches as travel restrictions ease around the world. It’s finally happening folks!! Woohooo!
During the first quarter of 2022, global search numbers for travel were up 25 percent quarter-over-quarter, led by double-digit growth in North America (30 percent) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (25 percent).
We’re not all numbers people, but these are some we can definitely get behind. In the wise words of Madonna (shout-out to our 80s peeps) “Holiday! Celebrate!”.
But let’s get back to today and down to business (shout-out to our Tiesto fans). The northern hemisphere summer is upon us and school holidays are around the corner. After the last couple of summers seeing most of us staying home, mostly indoors, with kids, well…you get the picture. A holiday is much-needed, well-earned and very much deserved.
We can now officially start browsing online for the best deals out there - you definitely want to get the best bang out of your buck - and the Hola Browser helps you do just that. How? Well, simply put, the Hola Browser gives you a full, open, unrestricted, worldwide view of the deals that are out there. Not just the deals open to people who happen to live where you live, ALL deals out there.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Let us lay it out for you. If, for example, you are based in Chicago and you’re searching for flight and hotel rates for Thailand, the rates you’ll be given can differ substantially if you were searching from the Philippines, or from Sydney, Australia. At Hola, we have yet to find a good enough reason for this. Why should you be penalized because of where you live? Exactly, we don’t know either.
Hola is committed to a borderless internet - we remove barriers and get you access to true worldwide content and the best flight and hotel booking rates out there.
With the Hola Browser, you are empowered to simply change your online location, at the click of a button, and will then be given the rates that are blocked from view. You can make significant savings on your bookings by downloading it - it’s super easy and really fun to use!
