Travelers set the standard for how and to what extent people use their mobile devices. Then, as the technology becomes more common, other consumers follow suit.
While the rate of mobile internet subscriptions is trending up across all regions, the highest smartphone usage can be found among travelers.
Based on a 2015 study from TripAdvisor, 44% of travelers who used their mobile phone to plan or book a trip would consider their phone essential during their trip so they can organize their plans. Does that sound like you?
A whopping 81% use their phone to find their way around while traveling.
Based on the one billion targeted messages TripCase will send in 2015, we know that your chance of receiving a flight notification can be calculated by your destination.

The number of travelers is on the rise, and the same can be said for their use of smartphones. So when it comes to mobile technology, travelers should be put in the category of first adopters.
