How consumers use their mobiles when travelling [INFOGRAPHIC]

We are constantly told how travellers are using their mobile devices to search and (increasingly) book travel, share multimedia content, etc.

Tripl (formerly Vacation Relation) has analysed the data coming in since it launched properly a few weeks ago to understand more about what users are REALLY doing when they use their tablets or mobile phones.

While much of the data says more about the type of users playing with the Tripl functionality (and therefore can’t easily be extended to other mobile travel services), broadly the information illustrates the use of location-based check-in tools such as FourSquare and Facebook are important considerations for some travellers, especially when combined with images.
