Over three quarters of consumers are now using the internet to book flights.

Consumers looking for cheap flights to Thailand, for example, are increasingly using the internet to find the best deals.

Figures released by eDigitalResearch, a company specialising in digital market research, show that more than 75 per cent of consumers will now book flights over the internet.

The research also found that about 63 per cent of people are booking their entire holidays online.

Michelle Fuller, director at the company, commented: “We are also seeing online as the preferred method of researching prior to booking.”

When planning a trip online, travellers are most concerned about price followed by activities to suit a particular interest and the length of the trip, according to a survey conducted earlier this year by Frommer’s Unlimited.

Other considerations for holidaymakers included weather, beaches and the length of a flight.

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. If you have booked a flight only where the ticket is not issued immediately, your flight will be protected under our ATOL. Please see our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate
