Travel agencies and tour operators are two related but can be independent business models that operate as intermediaries between suppliers and tourists. In many cases, travel agencies are also tour operators and vice versa, particularly in countries other than the United States. This is understandable considering the history of their evolution in different countries. Travel agencies can be defined as a sector that books, sells, and arranges travel , tour , and accommodation services provided by suppliers of the industry Bhatia Some are primarily engaged in making travel arrangements and reservation services. These agencies include online-only booking systems such as Expedia. Others offer their own packages and thus act as tour operators.
A travel agency is a private retailer or public service that provides travel and tourism -related services to the general public on behalf of accommodation or travel suppliers to offer different kinds of travelling packages for each destination. Travel agencies can provide outdoor recreation activities, airlines , car rentals , cruise lines , hotels , railways , travel insurance , package tours , insurance , guide books , VIP airport lounge access , arranging logistics for luggage and medical items delivery for travellers upon request, public transport timetables , car rentals , and bureau de change services. Travel agencies can also serve as general sales agents for airlines that do not have offices in a specific region. A travel agency's main function is to act as an agent , selling travel products and services on behalf of a supplier. They do not keep inventory in-hand unless they have pre-booked hotel rooms or cabins on a cruise ship for a group travel event such as a wedding , honeymoon , or other group event. Travel agencies often receive commissions and other benefits and incentives from providers or may charge a fee to the end users.
Tour operator is an organization, firm, or company who buys individual travel components, separately from their suppliers and combines them into a package tour, which is sold with their own price tag to the public directly or through middlemen, is called a Tour Operator. More precise tour operators are primarily responsible for delivering and performing the services specified in a given package tour. They can provide these services themselves as some have their own cars and coaches, hotels, and other travel-related services or can obtain these from the other suppliers. That is why they are called manufacturers of tourism products. Tour operators are sometimes called wholesalers but this is partially true because a wholesaler buys goods and services in bulk at his own account to prepare a tour package and then retails it through the travel agencies or directly to clients.
