Eurostat: In Czech Rep air travel booked online for less than half of trips In 2014, for just under 1 in 4 tourism trips (24 %), transport was booked online. However, for many trips where people travel with their own car no booking (whether online or offline) was needed. In six Member States (Belgium, Czech Republic, Greece, Spain, Romania and Slovakia), air travel was booked online for fewer than half of the trips, recent Eurostat data show.
There are big differences across the European Union with accommodation booked online for more than 2 out of every 3 trips made by residents of the Netherlands (69 %), France (68 %), Luxembourg (67 %) - and the Czech Republic (39.8%) - while accommodation was booked online for fewer than 10 % of the trips made by residents from Romania (7 %) and Bulgaria (9 %), Eurostat says.
According to the 2015 survey on ICT usage in households and by individuals, 48 % of Czechs (aged 16 to 74) reported having used the internet for purposes related to travel (or travel related accommodation services).
