"Operators have started to expand their portfolios considerably either from online services or physical entity into mobile apps platform. Today mobile sites and apps are being designed to feature simple and fast search and booking tools, backed up by attractive options such as one-off deals and mobile-exclusive promotions.

This has made holiday booking an even more competitive market in which there are thousands of websites, apps and tools competing for a slice of the pie. So as the mobile marketplace for travel services and the popularity of devices grow, it is time for operators to focus and differentiate."
