Most travel agents are 'outbound'; that is, they send their customers out of the country on holidays abroad. [...]
As far as long-haul destinations are concerned, this schema still works although it's beginning to crack. But the arrival of low-cost short-haul airlines means that the old order has imploded: the customer can now find, book and pay for his own flight. She can now organize her own holiday without the outbound agent ... even to the point of hiring cars, booking hotels and arranging activities abroad. Does this mean that the incoming agent is as obsolete as the out-going one? Probably not so, for a number of reasons: firstly the incoming agent lives and works in the country, therefore he knows more about what to see, what hotels to avoid, which ski resorts are good etc. Secondly, he has built up a relationship with his suppliers (car hire, transfers, hotels, activities) which means getting a better price than you would get. The result is that he can create and market packages as cheap as (or cheaper) than you could ... sparing you the time and guaranteeing you quality accommodation and service. [...]
