U.S. Travel Agency Distribution Landscape: 2016-2021

Phocuswright has been researching the travel agency distribution landscape in the U.S. since 2006. It's time for a refresh!

The rise of the service economy and the challenges of do-it-yourself have escalated the growth and complexity of the travel agency model. With a multitude of affiliations, business models and locations, travel suppliers have a much more diverse audience to find and service. U.S. Travel Agency Distribution Landscape will dig deeper into the complexity and help the industry understand what their sales force really looks like today and where they are headed in the future.

The definition of "online" has multiple meanings, with many traditional retail-type businesses generating their customers online but servicing and closing the deals offline. Independent contractors have risen to a level of high importance for suppliers as top agencies grow through these off location sales people.

The travel agency landscape appears to have stabilized but its demographics have morphed in the process. This study will size the market and examine the key issues and trends transforming the travel agency distribution landscape in the U.S. The research will be analyzed across supplier relationships, consortia and affiliation partners, and their technology providers.
