How Travel Sites Rate With Consumers

Three seconds — or less — is the time a clear majority of online shoppers will wait for a travel site to load before abandoning it.

In this relatively-mature market, it's all about speed, performance, and reliability – users aren't willing to tolerate slow, difficult-to-navigate sites.
