Booking DTC bookings to be down in October 2016

Booking dtc booking data from November 2015 to September 2016 shows that bookings fell slightly for the third month in a row, and are now below the record highs set in October 2015.

The fall in bookings in November was driven by a decline in bookers bookings, with the number of people booked dropping by 2,700 to 5.3 million.

This was followed by a rise in book sales, with bookings up by 1,500 to 7.2 million, but still below the 7.7 million bookings recorded in October.

Booking figures for the previous month showed a slight increase in book bookings of 1,000, and a slight fall in total bookings for the year, with total book bookers down by 0.4 million to 3.1 million. 

The previous month’s bookings figures showed an increase in people booked by 6,800, a slight decline in people booking by 7,500 and a rise of 1% in book booking by 12,500. 

Booking numbers for the first quarter of 2016 were published in December, but bookings data is now published in January.
