DubLi Announces Results From Global Holiday Travel Survey

Reveals Holiday Bookings Vary Between Domestic and International Travelers

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2015) -  DubLi, a leader in global Cashback shopping, today announced results from its global holiday travel survey, revealing that U.S. based and international travelers book their holiday travels differently and that Cashback and savings play an important role when making online reservations.

Sent to over 1 million customers around the world, the survey, which was conducted from July 23 to July 31, reveals the following:

  • 66% of all U.S. customers and 70% of international customers plan to travel this holiday season.
  • A majority of the company's international consumers book their holiday travel six months in advance, while U.S. users prefer to book three months in advance. Booking travel between six and three months out has been proven to maximize savings on airfare.
  • More than half of U.S. respondents (51%) use deals found on travel booking sites, and 55% of global shoppers rely on Cashback savings when planning holiday travels.
  • 46% of global respondents prefer to stay in hotels when traveling over the holidays, whereas a majority of U.S. residents plan to stay with friends and family.
  • The most popular destination for DubLi's U.S. customers is Florida, followed by California, New York, Mexico and Turkey. The top destinations for global customers are Algarve, a region on the southern coast of Portugal, and Dubai.

"With a majority of global consumers starting to plan their holiday vacations and looking to maximize savings, travel booking sites can maximize traffic by offering deals and discounts earlier in the year," said Michael Hansen, DubLi Founder. "DubLi is unique because we aggregate all of these coupons in one place and offer Cashback savings, enabling travelers to book at all of their favorite travel websites around the world while enjoying the benefits of Cashback."
