The Perfect business plan for your own travel agency which will not only make you money but will also provide your future customers the best travel experience that they want.

Like any other industry, there is certain players/stakeholder for a successful business transaction. Let us have a look at them:

By seeing the above diagram you must have already got an idea how does a usual travel agency transaction work.

A travel agent usually receives a requirement from a customer, gets in contact with a Supplier/DMC for a B2B Quote, and pitch the quote with his profit margin to the customers.

If customers like the price and the services offered, they agree to book the packages with the Travel Agent.

Travel Agents purchases the packages from the DMC and sells for a simple mark up/profit margin to the customer. That is how a usual business transaction work.

A common mistake a lot of people do is confuse DMC for Service Provider or vice versa.

It is very important to know the difference between a DMC – Destination Management Company and a Service Provider.

  1. DMC – A DMC is basically an aggregator dealing with multiple service providers and travel agents at the same time to manage the on ground business of a traveler.
  2. Service Provider – A Service provider is the person/entity providing the traveler with the services that he/she is actually paying for. For example – hotels, airlines, cab drivers etc.

The major problem that any travel business may face is the problem of trust with the organization that you are dealing with.

You are new to the industry and do not want to make any mistakes that can cost you thousands of rupees just because you did not pay attention to some basic details.

Worry not, TravClan has got you covered there as well.
