Key takeaways

  • The world economy has managed to confound most forecasters during 2023. But the foundations for future growth may not be as stable as they seem;
  • Globally, average ticket prices are expected to decrease by 0.8% in 2024. Higher average airfares are only likely in Africa and North America;
  • Global hotel rates are expected to rise by 6.8% on average in 2024. Even as the pace of recovery shows signs of slowing, demand will continue to outpace available supply in many markets.
