Smartphone users are ready to buy – right now. Smartphone users aren’t afraid to use their phones to book travel online. Some 16 million U.S. smartphone users made a travel purchase with their device last year, and it’s expected that 28% of all online travel bookings will be made by smartphone by 2015.

Your booking engine should be smartphone optimized because a visitor in a rush won’t have time to enter a great deal of text or mull over a lot of options.
