  2. Travel segment: key differences across airlines, hotels and travel intermediaries, including online travel agencies (OTAs), traditional agencies and TMCs (travel management companies)
  3. Region: the mix of payment methods used and trends vary by region.
  4. Payment model: key challenges and trends across B2B vs. B2C payments for online and offline distribution.
