CheapoAir, Travelocity and Orbitz all vying for position – Top US travel websites, December 2012

Less than 0.75% market share separates Orbitz, Travelocity and CheapOAir near the top of the list of most popular travel websites in the US.

The trio did not change position – fifth, fourth and third respectively – in December last year in the agency category from the previous month but did as a group all manage to lose some market share, as did Priceline in second spot.

Market leader Expedia gained just 0.25% over the same period.
