Hostelworld optimises webpage loading time
Online consumers demand deeper insights about destinations when browsing for travel and booking their reservations, but have little patience for slow-performing websites.
As each second passes, consumers abandon slow travel & tourism sites. In fact, 78 percent of consumers reported switching to a competitor’s site due to poor web performance at peak times. Site downtime makes matters even worse. Just 2 percent downtime leads to $800,000 of lost revenue per year for a travel site with bookings of $100,000 per day.
