Smartphones are taking over our travels

About 75% of American travelers consider their smartphone the number one travel accessory.

Passport Photo Online gathered 1,000+ Americans to conduct a data-driven study and get final answers about phone use during traveling. 

Key findings:

  • About 75% of American travelers consider their smartphone the number one travel accessory.
  • Most US travelers (71%) check their cell phones an average of 32–80 times per day, while 10% admitted they take a peek ~160 times daily.
  • Travelers in the wild: Among respondents who use social media on vacation, 46% want to make followers jealous of their travel experience.

It turns out 84% of Americans are comfortable or very comfortable with it – a 36% increase compared to 2018. Perhaps, it shows the travel industry has further embraced the mobile-first approach, making it easier for travelers to arrange the entire trip on the go.
