DSI - the only touristic satisfaction survey you will ever need!

Ever wonder why you can find so many survey regarding hotels and accommodation but not a single one taking an overall approach and combining all the factors that make a vacation destination popular or disliked?

So did we!
This is why we developed a handy key metric, the DSI - the Destination Satisfaction Index. Unlike other providers, we do not only ask about accommodation but are able to give you a detailed overview in 20 categories, such as infrastructure, service, restaurants and overall satisfaction to name just a few. And what’s even more: we do not just ask anyone – we very carefully select a sample that is population representative and also collect detailed background information (age, gender, education, income, region).

To stay on top of that huge data pile and make it even more comfortable for you, our interactive dashboard helps you to stay focused on the most important insights (KPIs) which are relevant for your desired destination

Our Approach

Destination Satisfaction Index (DSI)

We have developed a handy key metric for you to keep an overview over all the different factors that come into play with travel satisfaction: our Destination Satisfaction Index (DSI). It scores from 1 (not satisfied at all) to 10 (very satisfied) and draws upon 20 individual factors for satisfaction with the trip (e.g. transport, accommodation, gastronomy, etc.).

But why do we think you even need another KPI? Even though the Net Promoter Score (NPS) is quite popular, we wanted to overcome its evident limitations for touristic research. As the NPS builds upon the willingness to recommend, the public reputation of a given destination plays an important role. This is why our research has revealed significant differences between the NPS and the DSI: Some destinations fall behind their public reputation, while others have a huge potential to build on high satisfaction scores. Our data will allow you to explore these differences in detail.
