“Word of mouth from friends and relatives is also an important influence on destination choice, which makes it imperative to monitor the views of ‘trusted advisors’– those people whose views on holidays are sought by their friends and/or family. For holiday travel 33% of the population are trusted advisors. Roy Morgan monitors the preferences of trusted advisors as an indication of future holiday hotspots and trends.”
The latest detailed Roy Morgan Travel Agent Brand Health and Holiday Booking Trends Report examines how travel agents are performing relative to their competitors. It also shows how the internet has changed the way New Zealanders are booking their holiday and leisure travel. This report is available as a whole or in sections.
