WebSitePulse 2017 Vacation Planning Websites Performance & Uptime Report

Vacation season is near and it's time for people to start planning their summer escape already. Most people now book their vacations online because they can organize the whole trip via one website - from booking a hotel, to buying tickets for tourist sights, renting a car and what not. Of course, online booking has its flaws as now vacationers have to choose from thousands of websites, some of which could be scams collecting personal data, or offering unreasonably high prices.

The best vacation planning websites must be particularly prepared to bear the expected heavy traffic during the vacation season or else – they may crash, freeze and/or slow down while visitors are browsing on them, which would lead to unwanted negative user experience and financial loses.

We at WebSitePulse, as a monitoring company, can't stress more on the importance of monitoring your websites and servers 24/7, especially when heavy traffic is expected, just to make sure their performance and availability is spotless.

As we do every year will be keeping a close eye on 13 of the most popular US travel booking websites for their performance and uptime during the busiest booking period - May 25th - June 30th, 2017, and report their efficiency.

The WebSitePulse Performance Reports will measure the websites' uptime and response time as the most important metrics for the availability and the reliability of any web-based operation, critical for the End Users' overall online experience. Measurements of web transactions will be made every 15 minutes, simultaneously from 4 different monitoring locations. In-depth analytical information is also collected and stored in the WebSitePulse system for future references. The WebSitePulse Application Monitoring service is used to collect data and produce the Report.
