Daniel Craig, VP of Mobile at Hotels.com brand, said: "At Hotels.com we know that 28% of people wouldn't enjoy their holiday without their smartphone in their hand - how could they possibly capture the best selfie or show off to their friends at home without it! Not only that, we also know that getting the perfect picture plays an even bigger role with 14% of travelers admitting they would pose anywhere for that flawless selfie, often putting selfies ahead of safety. With a third of travelers refusing to book a hotel that doesn't offer free Wi-Fi, there is a clear demand for travelers to be connected at all times. At Hotels.com, we have so many great places to stay, all bookable at the click of a button on our mobile app, that we're confident selfie-lovers will have plenty of opportunities to snap the ideal #nofilter photo for Instagram, perfect to #TravelBrag with."
