In Europe, travel is well on its way to recovery and normalization in 2023, as Europeans broadly remain eager to travel and continue to prioritize spending on leisure trips, even while facing some economic challenges and shifting their travel shopping and booking activities.


In APAC, pent-up demand swept in a travel spike.

In China, a dynamic domestic market and a reviving outbound sector will propel total gross bookings of $185 billion in 2024.
