Frosty...the Sandcastle?

This holiday season's travel data from the Switchfly platform reveals that travelers around the world are using the Christmas holiday to fly somewhere warm – or to rendez-vous with Lady Luck in Vegas. While average temperatures in much of the United States in December will range from highs of 30-50 degrees to lows in the frigid single digits, many people will find themselves much more comfortable in top international Christmas destinations – sunny Brazil (#1), the Bahamas (#2), and Mexico (#3) – where December temperatures are typically between 75-80 degrees.

Spotlight on Switchfly - by Chris Hemmeter of Thayer Ventures

When it comes to scaling TAMs (total addressable market) nothing impresses like the global travel space. $7 trillion of economic activity is eye-popping by anyone's yardstick. After all, one only needs to see a path to 1% market share to make a killing. Yet, seasoned investors understand the devil is in the details and true market opportunity is far more nuanced than total market activity. That's one of the reasons travel tech Switchfly is so impressive and why CEO Daniel Farrar is so excited to be at the helm of a company attacking an addressable market segment estimated at $1.5 trillion and growing at 5% to 6% per year. Just to frame those numbers further, that's a market generating $75 to $90 billion of new business each year, numbers that dwarf many of Silicon Valley's favorite spaces and verticals.
