Comparing Q4 to Q3 revealed:
Every region saw an increase of three-plus travellers in the fourth quarter, with the exception of the Middle East and Africa, which held steady from previous quarter.
Given the high number of holidays, many of which are spent with families, this uptick reveals the seasonal differences of Q4. There were a number of shifts in top outbound destinations. For Asia Pacific travellers, London, which was in the top five destinations searched in Q3, was replaced by Taipei in Q4.
