What is Travel Trade?
Travel Trade generally refers to a company that sells to consumers and/or travel agents that make reservations and itineraries on behalf of the consumer. It includes online travel agents, receptive tour operators, wholesalers, travel agents, etc. They typically work with international travelers, and have intimate knowledge of the travelers’ interests and motivations to travel.
Partnering with the travel trade is the most cost-effective way for your business to reach group tours and international visitors. Through these partnerships, you will expand your sales force and spread your marketing message across the globe!
