With its foundation Travel Data + Analytics (TDA) took over the travel sales tracking run since 2004 by the Nuremberg market research company GfK. After transferring the GfK data to a new IT landscape, Travel Intelligence was set up as an independent solution with a machine-learning database and associated analysis tool. With the raw data collected from travel agencies and numerous online portals of tour operators and Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), a representative picture for the German tour operator market is calculated and condensed into concretely applicable market knowledge. The requirements of tourism companies for a up to date controlling tool and further developing, increasingly dynamic issues can thus be mapped reliably and promptly without giving up the core of a market-representative method that can be consistently compared over time.

Data Source:

By the Travel Intelligence database, the leisure travel booking data from a fixed and controlled sample of point of sales is stored via the connected reservation and mid-office systems. For each reporting week, we prepare the current confirmed characteristics of the recorded bookings using a combination of big data / machine learning technology and statistical extrapolation methods that have been approached and proofed for many years.

By this way we ensure that the raw data supplied by various sales channels (stationary travel agencies, online travel portals and mobile sales), in various formats, with varying quality & consistency, is representative of the market for tour operators and OTAs and that the analysis results are objectively comparable.

TDA provides transparency to the current booking situation generate actionable insights, whereby particularly high demands on the statistical resilience and quality of the reported booking trends are met.
