Travel Agency & Tour Operations.Tour Operator.Travel Agent.Functions Of Travel Agent and Tour Operator.Difference Between Travel Agent and Tour Operator

• A travel agency is a private retailer or public service that provides tourism related services to the public on behalf of suppliers such as airlines, car rentals, cruise lines, hotels, railways, and package tours.

• Travel agencies have a separate department devoted to making travel arrangements for business travelers and some travel agencies specialize in commercial and business travel only.

• There are also travel agencies that serve as general sales agents for foreign travel companies, allowing them to have offices in countries other than where their headquarters are located.

• A travel agent is a middleman between the service providers and the passenger.

• Thomas Cook of Melbourne, England founded the travel agency that in 2007 became Thomas Cook Group.

• As the name implies, a travel agency's main function is to act as an agent, that is to say, selling travel products and services on behalf of a supplier.

• Unlike other retail businesses, they do not keep a stock in hand. • A package holiday or a ticket is not purchased from a supplier unless a customer requests that purchase.

• The holiday or ticket is supplied to them at a discount. The profit is therefore the difference between the advertised price which the customer pays and the discounted price at which it is supplied to the agent. This is known as the commission

• Most travel agencies operate on a commission- basis, meaning that the compensation from the airlines, car rentals, cruise lines, hotels, railways, sightseeing tours, tour operators etc., is expected in the form of a commission from their bookings.

• Tour operator designs, develops, markets and operates packaged travel and tourism products and tours. Tour operators sell through Travel agents and/or directly to consumers.
