360VR tours increase online bookings by 67%... or more.
An extensive study for Omni Hotels found that when online visitors were offered 360VR tours they were 67% more likely to book a room online. And the richer the media (adding music, voice over, animation, video) the higher the conversion rates, more than doubling “look to book” ratios. Bottom line, research indicates that 360VR tours results in some 16% more bookings overall. (TIG Global)
A similar study study just completed by Ice Portal and Hotel-Seekers.com found overall average bookings increased by 18%.

In 2012 nearly 57% of hotel bookings in North America were generated via the Internet. At least another third of hotel bookings are directly influenced by online research, but booked offline. (eMarketer, HeBS)
The web is particularly important to resorts and travel attractions. 85% of leisure travelers consider the internet their main source of travel planning and the average traveler visits some 22 travel related sites during 9.5 research sessions prior to booking. (Google ThinkInsights, 2011)
