Eurostat: 17% of the Europeans Book Accommodation Online, Only 4% Are Cypriots

According to a 2017 Eurostat survey, 17% of individuals in the EU arranged accommodation (room, apartment, house, holiday cottage, etc.) via websites or apps from another private individual for private purposes in the preceding 12 months, the Cyprus News Agency reports. The respective rate in Cyprus was 4%, the second lowest in the EU. Half of this 4% (2%) performed the booking through dedicated websites or apps and not just any webpage.
 
Arranging transport services online was less common, being used by around 8% of individuals in the EU. Again, this was mainly done via dedicated websites or apps. While online accommodation booking from another private individual was more common among individuals aged 25-54 (22%), arranging transport services from another private person tends to be more popular among the younger generation (14% of those aged 16-24). In Cyprus only 1% of the population book transport services online and 0% did so, through dedicated apps or sites. That was the lowest rate in the EU.

Approximately 1 in 3 individuals aged 16 to 74 arranged accommodation from another private individual via a website or with an app in the United Kingdom (34%), as did about 1 in 5 individuals in Luxembourg (22%), Ireland (21%), Malta and the Netherlands (20% each). In contrast, the Czech Republic (1%) registered the lowest proportion among Member States for which data is available, followed by Cyprus (4%), Portugal and Romania (6% each) as well as Croatia (7%).

The highest share of individuals who arranged transport services from another private individual via any website or app was registered in the United Kingdom (27%), ahead of Estonia (20%) and Ireland (17%). At the opposite end of the scale, the lowest shares were recorded in Cyprus (1%), the Czech Republic, Austria, Portugal and Romania (2% each).

In nearly all Member States, the share of individuals using a website or app to arrange accommodation from other individuals was higher than for transport, the only exceptions being Estonia (15% for accommodation vs. 20% for transport) and the Czech Republic (1% for accommodation vs. 2% for transport).
