One in four people use their mobiles to book (28%) or pay (24%) for their daily commute, a figure double that of 2013.
This is according to new research from BuzzCity revealing the habits of today’s connected traveller. Not yesterday’s though, that traveller just read a book or did a crossword.
With mobile traffic playing a significant role again this Christmas, I think we're finally at the point where retailers understand the importance of mobile UX.
However, are they putting this into practice? Are mobile commerce sites beginning to meet users' expectations?
In an effort to distinguish their services and identify a niche, most travel providers avoid positioning themselves in the way other online retailers might.
Instead, they focus on services like travel meta-search (e.g. Skyscanner) or customer feedback (Tripadvisor).

Since 2010, mobile’s share of ecommerce traffic has grown from 3.5% to 36.9% with mobile revenue rising from $2bn to $42bn.
Knowing where, and how, to get customers to embrace this growth will separate your online store from the rest of the pack.
As an online retailer, you know it would be foolish to ignore mobile, but knowing where to start can be tricky.
Mobile first is not a luxury but a necessity if your ecommerce business is to keep pace with the rapid growth in mobile use.
One in five people in the world own a smartphone and one in 17 own a tablet, according to BI Intelligence.
Revenues from mobile sales in Europe and the US continue to grow dramatically too. In the last four years they are up from 2.2% in 2010 and predicted to grow to 23% by the end of 2014, meaning transactions made on the go will be worth $101bn.
Research from Intelligent Positioning showed that mobile and tablet traffic is also set to overtake that from the desktop this summer.
Last year mobile traffic increased from 23% to 37% whilst desktop’s share dropped from 77% to 63% in the same year.
It found that over a third of all traffic is now coming from a handheld mobile or tablet device.
