The online travel market in the Latin American region is expanding with the help of several factors that are driving the current economic growth in the region. Factors including investment stimulation by regional governments and an increase in skilled labour are causing a surge in new business arrivals from outside the region. Similarly, the increasing middle class across the world and their growing interest to explore more countries coupled with the elimination of visas required between nations, have caused an even greater spike in tourists who are venturing further than the confines of their national borders. However, the region is largely hit by the ongoing COVID-19 during 2020, it is anticipated that the market will return to the pre-pandemic figures slowly during the forecast period and record growth in transactions.

The growing number of travellers in Latin America has benefited both regional and international airlines, as well as hotel chains that drive the market studied. Increased tourist demand in countries such as Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico has led international hotel chains to desire a stronger presence in the region and expand their service offerings in the region. The tourism sector has been transformed by the use of e-commerce. In a population where 60% of people have access to the Internet, more and more Latin travellers are using different mobile applications and internet platforms to reserve hotels, book tours and organize transport, foregoing traditional travel agencies, thus helping the market to expand further in the region.
