Iberia: a new way of traveling thanks to experiential tourism?

Tourism is only growing. More and more people decide to travel and visit new cities. Faced with this phenomenon, Air Europa and Iberia present their Living Apps to differentiate themselves through experiential tourism and promote a new way of traveling.

By our side, Spaniards prefer to travel in summer: in August 33% of reservations are made while in July 22%. A new way of traveling is on the way.

However, one of the biggest challenges in finding a ride they are the lack of time, choosing the destination city and, later, the activities to do there. On average, a user spends 4 hours and 33 minutes searching, comparing and booking activities in the city in which he is going to travel.

Regarding choosing the destination, it seems that many users have agreed this 2019: the most demanded have been Japan, Norway, Russia, Jordan and Morocco. Under this scenario, in which traveling is becoming one of our favorite leisure goals, the question arises: what type of trip to choose? How to select an offer among so much information? And the activities, all the ones that the blogs recommend are for me? Will the information be up to date?
