PhoCusWright Reports Drop in Online Travel Agency Index in May
The PhoCusWright Online Travel Agency Index, after outperforming in March and April, fell 12 percent in May. While both Expedia and TripAdvisor recorded gains for the month, Priceline's 18 percent drop dragged down the overall Index performance. Despite the weak month, the Index has substantially outperformed on a year-to-date basis, with a gain of 29 percent.
