The Travel Industry Timeline

In 1841 Thomas Cook founded what is known until today as the Travel Agency, but didn’t really take off until the invention of the commercial airplane in 1920’s.

 

From those distant days until today, the evolution of the world and especially the technological development of recent years, have created new needs and customs on the people and have made the Travel Industry market, being divided in 3 defined areas.


Travel Agency: is a private retailer that provides travel and tourism-related services to the general public from travel suppliers. 

It’s designed to help customers make all types of arrangements for trips.

When you plan your trip with a Travel Agency, you're looking for an adviser who will help you to have a smooth experience with the best value from beginning to end.

 

Travel Management Companies: are known for serving corporations and business travelers. These companies help to oversee costs and budgets, offer strategic oversight of the travel program, and negotiate with suppliers on behalf of their clients to obtain better benefits for them. 

A good management will help you to have complete control over the travel expenses of each individual in the entire organization.

 

Online Travel Agency (OTA's): Since 1996 this modality hasn't stopped growing. The technology and the new generations transformed this e-commerce into one of the most common in today’s travel. 

On these sites you gain access to a wide breadth of travel products that allows you to research and book with travel suppliers. 

Be careful it’s always under their terms in availability, airlines, schedules, rates, etc. There are no magic rates.
