This week at Compete, we compiled the list of fastest growing online travel agencies in January. Americans were busy booking trips in the New Year: the category had over 54 million Unique Visitors, up 26.7% from December. Some of the niche agencies included on the list offer travel to the Dominican Republic, Europe, California, and the Caribbean.

Let’s dig a little deeper into the largest sample site on the list.

January is usually a big month for travel agencies. Bookit.com took advantage of the seasonality, and their paid search referrals increased 50.56% over December. They bid on keywords such as “all inclusive resorts”, “Jamaican Sunset” and other specific destinations they offer packages to. The site had 93.16% more Unique Visitors than the previous month.
