Tourism distribution channels: practices and processes



Tourism distribution channels: practices, issues and transformations: 7-32



This chapter analyses the nature, role, typologies, functions and major benefits for the main intermediaries in the tourism distribution channel (namely outgoing travel agencies, tour operators, and incoming travel agencies) in Europe. The fluidity that characterizes the tourism distribution channels in different countries of origin and destinations makes it difficult to define and establish strategies, tactics, operations features, practices and functions that are used worldwide.
