Travel Agencies in the US
The Travel Agencies industry has experienced steady growth over the five years to 2018, as online booking agencies capitalized on increased demand for travel while traditional travel agencies worked to reinvent their business practices. The rise of online travel websites, such as Expedia.com and Priceline.com, has completely revolutionized the industry. Consumers can now research locations, compare prices, book travel and manage reservations without the assistance of an expert, negating the role of traditional travel agencies. This trend has been amplified with the rise of mobile computing, as consumers are more likely to do their own travel research and seek affordable travel packages online. Consequently, many brick-and-mortar travel agencies have been forced to find new markets. Steady growth in the broader economy is expected to boost the industry's prospects over the next five years, while travel rates are also anticipated to rise. Growth in per capita income and steady unemployment levels will likely lead to growth in domestic and international travel.
This industry includes businesses that sell, book and arrange travel, tour and accommodation services for the general public and commercial clients. The industry also encompasses companies primarily engaged in providing travel arrangement and reservation services, including online-only booking systems.
