Distribution


Travel distribution comes in a myriad of shapes and sizes, with a dizzying array of processes to match  - but at its most basic level, it is the mechanism to connect suppliers of travel products to their end-users.

In every aspect of the industry, developments in technology, changing consumer shopping habits and new players constantly entering the market have caused distribution to go through significant levels of transformation.
