TripAdvisor’s TripBarometer survey  found that mobile devices are an essential part of the travel experience for U.S. respondents, and that travellers are nearly twice as likely to use smartphones than tablets during their travels: 85 percent (85%) of American travellers reported using smartphones while on holiday, while just 46 percent (46%) reported using tablets, citing a fear of missing out on news from their friends and families as a reason for staying connected.

The survey results showed that U.S. travellers’ use of social media and mobile devices while on vacation was comparable to the global average for the 22 countries polled. Eighty-seven percent (87%) of global travellers reported using a smartphone while on holiday, compared to 44 percent (44%) who reported using a tablet while on a trip. Sixty-one percent (61%) of global travellers reported using social media while on vacation.
