Echoing the success U.S. online travel companies have enjoyed, data released Thursday by
Jupiter MMXI said that European travel Web sites are also seeing a surging demand for their
services.


According to the research firm, the number of consumers visiting travel sites in Europe
spiked by almost 4 million between November and April. In Europe's three largest markets
-- the UK, France and Germany -- unique users increased by almost 1 million each, to hit a
total of over 10 million visitors during the six-month period.

To All:

Travel is a natural E-Commerce venue because of multiple fares and numerous options. It will be interesting to see if the ECC forms an equivalent to Orbitz in the US, where the top five airlines are trying to drive their market share from 70% to 80% while reducing third-party travel agency costs.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
