USA pips Italy to the top spot in Titan Travel’s first ever Travel Trends report for the escorted tours and cruise market
Pipping Italy to the top spot the USA takes pole position in Titan Travel’s (www.titantravel.co.uk, 0800 988 5873), first ever travel trends report focusing purely on the growing escorted tours and cruise holiday market.
With over 40 years’ experience in this holiday sector, Titan has leveraged its heritage and expertise to analyse the results of its 429 tours and cruises. It has consulted with its expert product team, as well as media and industry insiders, and taken an up-close look at the state of the market in 2019, and beyond, to consider where its customers are going and what appear to be the key trends in their decision-making process*.
In the 20-page report the USA has bounced back to take the top spot from perennial favourite Italy, with the diversity of its product seen as a key factor. The operator’s Southern Sights and Sounds tour has, for the first time, overtaken Titan’s California and the Golden West itinerary as its most popular US tour, with the charm of the southern states proving a draw away from the west coast*.
Emerging destinations Armenia, Georgia and Uzbekistan are also tempting the more adventurous who want to see the world and have the time and money to do so in style. Whilst Titan reports a resurgence of escorted holidays to Egypt after seeing it jump up some 21 places compared to its figures for last year*, suggesting customers are feeling more confident to travel to the North African country as part of a group. Surprisingly, Norway has fallen down five places in comparison to 2018, although cruise-based holidays to the country’s magnificent fjords have seen a spike of interest going into the New Year.
Andy Squirrell, Managing Director, Titan Travel, comments, “We are happy to reveal the results of our first-ever Titan trends report. This report takes a really in-depth look into how the landscape of escorted touring is changing. We know our customers and when it comes to destinations and experiences it’s important that we share our expertise, so they can always make an informed decision”.
