On The Road


Travel industry merging to the fast lane

With the US economy showing signs of a continued, steady economic recovery, an increasing number of people are taking to the skies, roads, and rails, setting up the travel market for continued growth. The US has seen a rise in corporate travel spending, aided by the addition of jobs in industries that require more business travel, such as business services and finance.[1] US travel spending is expected to rise 5.1% to $268.5 billion in 2013 [2], with airlines and hotels expected to post improved operating numbers. In July 2013, airlines within North America reported a 3.6% year over year increase in international traffic, and have been operating at their highest load factors[3] Meanwhile, US hotels are expected to increase room rates by 4.4%, while enjoying higher occupancy rates of 70%, compared with 69.3% in the summer of 2012.[4] This motif provides exposure to the stocks of companies providing travel-related products and services, such as hotels, airlines, car rental and online booking platforms, which would stand to fare well from increasing corporate and consumer travel spending.
