Did you know the leisure packaged travel industry in the US has been growing steadily since 2017? According to a Phocuswright study, packaged travel grew 3% year-over-year, a huge jump from 1% in 2016. This trend is in line with the travel industry as a whole and is expected to continue in the years ahead.
Although online travel agency bundles are growing, travel agencies still have a large piece of the “distribution” pie. So do you have the right tools to satisfy the growing demand of personalized packages and complex itineraries? Do you have the insight on where the next hottest destination is, and do you have access to the most popular inventories?
