The travel and tourism industry can be made more profitable and efficient with big data analytics. Billions of trips are taken each year and each of these creates multiple data points that are easily recorded through ticket purchases, hotel bookings, and internet searches. Companies are investing in the technology to different extents and those that are only doing so superficially will likely fall behind those that fully understand the power of big data analysis.

Key Highlights

  • With the huge amount of information collected about travelers around the world, companies are able to make use of targeted marketing to attract the right customers at the right time.
  • The misuse and mishandling of personal data is a hot topic, thanks in large part to the scandal involving Facebook and Cambridge Analytica. Increased regulation around the storage and processing of data is highly likely - indeed, it is already underway in Europe in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force in May 2018.
  • The full-scale mainstream adoption of 5G, which is still a few years away, has the potential to increase data consumption globally. 5G is expected to enable faster speeds (up to 20 gigabits per second (Gbps) per user) and connect around one million devices per square kilometer (approximately 10 times more than with 4G).
  • So many aspects of booking can be affected by big data analytics - marketing, pricing, and seat or hotel room allocation are just some of these. According to the author 2019 Q3 survey, online travel agents (OTAs) are the most used avenue for booking travel.
  • Big data is continuously changing the way tourism brands price and target their customers, by providing more tailored and ultimately better product and service offerings based on the available information. This translates to dynamic pricing (adjusting ticket and room prices based on demand) to ensure firstly that prices remain competitive, and secondly to reduce the likelihood of lost revenue through a lack of bookings.
