5. 5 Introduction Online migration ■ Most travel segments (hotels, tour operators, traditional flights, cars, rails) are still over 60% dependent on offline and other channels. The exception are low cost airlines, at 90% online ■ However, “offline and other channels” does not necessarily equal “old-fashioned”. It includes personally individualised travel, using Google, and then booking locally, via email, etc ■ The next frontier in online migration likely involves: customisation, on-demand, and convenience Market power ■ Following a consolidation wave, Priceline and Expedia now have over 60% European market share of Online Travel Agents (OTAs). That is about 13% of the total online & offline European market ■ (Priceline) dominates lucrative hotel distribution, mainly via Google paid search ■ The remaining 40% of the OTA market is fragmented, consisting of regional OTAs and meta-search ■ Meta-search is still on the rise in Europe, both in flights and hotels, surpassing regional OTAs ■ Airlines have maintained direct distribution power, by consolidating and investing in online presence New developments ■ In April ‘15 was forced to abandon certain price-parity clauses, allowing hotels to offer lower prices via smaller OTAs. This also plays into the hands of price comparators (meta-search) ■ Meanwhile, Google is deploying a cost-per-click (CPC) model for hoteliers (Hotel Ads / Hotel Finder). Trivago (Expedia), too, is experimenting with a direct CPC model for hotels ■ Hotel chains are seeking to regain control, via consolidation (AccorHotels, Marriott), by investing in startups (Hyatt, Wyndham, AccorHotels), and their own booking platforms (AccorHotels) ■ Travel was originally among the first industries to get digitised, but disruption keeps happening and online migration still has a lot of ground to cover

6. Meta-search ■ Flight meta-search is benefiting from regional fragmentation of flight OTAs. Skyscanner is also testing a direct distribution model with airlines, thus becoming a quasi-OTA. An OTA’s take-rate adds up to 5-10%, whereas for Skyscanner the CPA is as low as 2-3% ■ Hotel meta-search is also on the rise, as consumers look to compare across all types of accommodations, not just hotels. Abandonment of price parity means that usefulness of price comparison increased, revealing price differences on single properties Booking ■ New hotel booking platforms face high entry barriers, requiring both inventory and distribution. Plus, already dominates. But there is still is a $58 billion offline hotel opportunity in Europe and hotels keen to reduce dependency ■ Other attractive segments include: cruise lines ($40B(2) ), trains ($33B), campings ($10B(1) ), activities, and business travel ($1.2T ! (3) ) ■ In flights, the OTA model is crowded and being challenged by the meta-search model and airlines P2P ■ Airbnb created an entirely new category and is leading the space with close to $9B in bookings. Since then, already established a strong position in apartment rentals ■ Other attractive segments include camper vans (Campanda), boats (Sailsquare), and cars (Blablacar) Packaged tours ■ Packaged tours made a comeback via new discount-driven models such as clubs, email, and deep-discounting (Travelbird, others) ■ Traditionally the domain of TUI, Thomas Cook etc, this $55B market is still is 75% offline ($41B). Much anticipation now comes from highly personalised travel solutions using human and artificial intelligence (Lola, iTravel, HeyJude) and on-demand models ■ More traditional OTAs in Germany have been pursuing consolidation strategies (7Travel, Unister). Several local mid-market online tour operators seek scale via strategic combinations, exits or private equity sponsored roll-up B2B tools ■ The hotelier software space has traditionally been crowded due to low entry barriers. Recently however, hoteliers are keen to regain control over their distribution and thus willing to invest in online presence, guest management, CRM, loyalty ■ is rolling out its hotel management software suite (called BookingSuite) and has made acquisitions in this field (Hotel Ninjas, PriceMatch, Buuteeq). However, some hoteliers are disinclined giving more power over their reservations, creating anopportunity for independent B2B tools Apps ■ The default online travel model has been “search & book”, but there is still a huge underserved “on-demand” consumer market ■ Also, app based personal assistants could soon replace tour operators (powered by human and/or AI) ■ Mobile is so far only 15% of total online volume but expected to grow rapidly 6 1.
