Holiday & Travel Brand Index

The Attest Brand Index is a platform agnostic step of a brand’s total brand equity at the Holidays & Travel sector, as determined by real customers.

What do we mean by ‘platform agnostic’? We mean no particular system like looking at networking mentions, or brand search provisions influences the results. This reduces bias and gives a far more accurate view of a brand’s strength in any given category.

To determine Travel Brand Index & the Holidays we examine three things.

  1. Percentage of unprompted brand recall within a named category e.g. ‘Gaming & Gambling’ ‘Snacks’ or ‘Entertainment’
  2. How likely a Man or Woman is to Buy your particular new (Purchase Intent)
  3. How likely a Man or Woman is to advocate your brand (Net Promoter score)

Our information is gathered every quarter from an internet survey sent to a panel of 1,000 UK customers aged 18-65.
