PROSPECTS
Bookings diversify, with many using a range of platforms to build trips

Online booking, especially mobile booking, is increasingly easy in Belgium, particularly as traditional intermediaries are generally focusing on building online activities at the expense of the offline channel. Belgian consumers are generally comfortable navigating the internet and find it increasingly time-efficient to make travel bookings online, particularly via mobile phones.

Traditional intermediaries benefit from specialisation

Belgium has a strong tradition of high-street travel agencies and while numbers continue to see slow decline, they remain strong. Tui, Neckermann (Thomas Cook) and smaller intermediaries like Connections or Service Voyages represent a large part of this network.

Package holidays under pressure but benefit from safe image

Travel intermediaries’ sales to Belgian residents continue to increase, benefiting from a good economic environment was good with the majority of Belgians able to afford to go on holiday. The search for perfect service and premium destinations, especially for package holidays, indeed led many to pay a bit more than before.
