Thematic Research: Premiumization in Tourism 2019

Summary

International travel used to be exclusively for the super-rich but with low-cost flights and package deals, it has become much more inclusive in recent decades. However, there are still ample opportunities to keep attracting those able and willing to spend a great deal on travel experiences. When traveling, visitors tend to spend more than they would usually in day-to-day life, which results in an ideal environment for premiumization. Hyper-premiumization is another step further, reserved for those with a very high net-worth.

International travel used to be exclusively for the super-rich but with low-cost flights and package deals, it has become much more inclusive in recent decades. However, there are still ample opportunities to keep attracting those able and willing to spend a great deal on travel experiences. When traveling, visitors tend to spend more than they would usually in day-to-day life, which results in an ideal environment for premiumization. Hyper-premiumization is another step further, reserved for those with a very high net-worth.

Key Highlights

– Conspicuous consumption means that people are willing to pay a lot of money to give the impression that they are elite travelers and social media has intensified this trend even further. Five-star hotels and luxury airlines can charge high prices for goods that would be much cheaper elsewhere as they know guests will be willing to pay more.
– Having an online presence is increasingly important, especially as travelers are highly influenced by what they see online. Influencers and celebrities can have a huge influence on the holidays people choose, in younger generations especially.
– Hotel chains typically have a number of different brands in their portfolio to spread risk and those with the biggest luxury brands include Marriott, Hilton, and Accor. Conversely, companies such as the Four Seasons and Kempinski are fully focused on premiumization and do not want to water down their brands by offering lower-end accommodation options.
– In terms of airlines, most full service carriers (FSCs) are engaged in premiumization in one way or another through their business and first class offerings. Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Etihad, and Air France are just some of those often listed on lists of the best luxury airlines.
