A new Amadeus report looks at luxury travel trends until 2025 to help the travel industry better target and service its fastest growing segment. The report was commissioned by Amadeus, a global travel technology provider, and developed with data from Tourism Economics and with dozens of expert interviews with global luxury travel experts across specialist travel concierge agencies, airlines, hoteliers and intermediary suppliers.
The report finds that Global consumers are increasingly spending their disposable income on experiences rather than material goods. Consumers’ desire for life experiences is spurring a growth in luxury travel that is outpacing the rest of the travel industry.
Between 2011 and 2015, luxury travel, in terms of out-bound flights on business or first class, saw a 4.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), versus 4.2% for overall travel. This trend will continue to accelerate over the next ten years, with luxury travel trips projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2015 and 2025, almost a third faster than overall travel at 4.8%.
Some key findings from the report include:
We have entered a new age of luxury travel, where luxury is curated, real-time and experience led
North America and Western Europe account for 64% of global outbound luxury trips, despite only making up 18% of the world’s population
From 2011-2025, Asia Pacific’s luxury travel market will see faster overall growth than Europe’s, but this growth will decelerate from 2015-2025
India’s luxury market CAGR of 13% is higher than any of the other BRIC nations, and is the highest of the 25 countries explored in this report

ITP Hotel Programme 2016
We are delighted to announce the addition of the Doyle Collection to ITP’s 2016 Hotel Programme.
The Doyle Collection is a carefully curated collection of eight Irish family-owned luxury and urban hotels located in superb locations in London, Dublin, Washington DC, Cork and Bristol.
Each hotel has a strong identity that is closely connected to its location and is unique in the way that has brought a cultural slice of its city into the fabric of the building and the guest experience. What binds the hotels together is the Doyle service ethos – a real warmth and thoughtfulness that stems from being a much loved family business.
ITP negotiated rates at selected Doyle Collection hotels are available for bookings via the local ITP partners’ sales consultants and online.
