The data covers January to October 2019, and looks at abandonment rates across five different travel types, and abandonment trends throughout the year to date.
People generally take time to research travel purchases, which is why travel abandonment rates are higher than the retail average of 84%. Within the different types of travel websites, there are variations. For example, Cruise and Ferry sites have high abandonment rates (97%) while the rate for Hotel sites is 84.63%.
