Mobile accounted for 27% of travel bookings worldwide in Q1 2016 and 29% in the U.S. This takes into account smartphones and tablets, and it does not include apps (see page 6), which can represent a significant contribution to mobile sales. In 2015, the share of mobile bookings increased for most travel subcategories in all countries.

As the entire travel industry rapidly adapts to mobile usage, Criteo now analyzes millions of online bookings every day, on all devices and from hundreds of global travel suppliers and online travel agencies (OTAs). This gives Criteo a front-row seat to observe the very latest trends in travel. This mid-year publication is complementary to the comprehensive report we publish in September. Here we present key observations and recommendations to help travel advertisers better leverage the mobile opportunity before the summer season.

Mobile bookings are also subject to significant seasonal variation. In the U.S. last year, the share of mobile bookings rose significantly in the summer, increasing by 21% between April and July. The same pattern is anticipated for the upcoming summer season.
