APAC-based OTAs represent more than one third of global gross bookings, fueled by the rise in China's biggest, Ctrip.

According to Phocuswright's latest Public Online Travel Roundup, Full Year 2018 travel research publication, growth rates in the world of public online travel once again slowed in 2018, but remained in double-digit territory, rising more than twice as fast as the total global travel market. Below are insights into regional focuses for the world's biggest OTAs.

Latin America OTAs
