He added: "Our index study shows that many European markets today are benefitting from mobile to drive online reservations.
"The popularity of smartphones across Europe has fuelled the growth of mobile reservations."
But it isn't just the UK market that is showing growth. Indeed, Germany saw a massive 375 per cent increase in mobile online reservations compared with late 2010.
The service provider predicted that one in every five online reservations made in the UK, Sweden and Denmark will come from mobile users by 2012.
