|Travel Consolidators - Things To Know
Things to Know about Travel Consolidators
Travel consolidators are high-volume ticket brokers. They
purchase large scale tickets and sell them to customers for a
lower price than the published fares.
A travel consolidator buys a large amount of tickets directly
from the carriers or the airline companies. This way they get
discounted prices because of the volume they purchased. They
negotiate with these carriers so they get big discounts. Some
travel consolidators even have their own contracts with the
However, they only negotiate for a specific region. Somewhere
they know that is a popular destination, this way they could
sell their tickets faster. Some consolidators are even owned by
the carriers themselves. Big airline companies normally have
several travel consolidators under their wing. These are done
because there may be instances that a number of seats are not
sold for a specific flight. What the carriers and the
consolidators do is to sell these empty seats at a lower fare.
Consolidators buy the extra tickets at a lower price and sell
them to travelers on a lower fare than the published rates.
It is not publicly known how consolidating works for travel.
Consolidators get their tickets in a much lower price than an
ordinary person because of the volume of tickets they bought.
This way they could resell the tickets at a much lower price to
travelers. But they do make profits. Yes they sell tickets at a
lower rate but that doesn't mean that they are sacrificing their
profit. Everything is
all about money. And they well know how to
make money. They also sell the tickets with the same price as
the published fares. This way they earn a bigger profit.
They have their own market. Some consolidators sell their
tickets to travel agents alone and some sell them both to the
travel agent and the public. Some also sell their tickets online.
Travel consolidators even come with different classifications.
There may be those who only do wholesale, meaning they resell
their tickets in volume. Other travel consolidators might be
those specializing on the destinations. This means that they
only buy tickets on specific regions. However there are also
those that specialize on multi-stops or those tickets on fights
that have several stops.
Like any other jobs travel consolidators have their own pluses
and minuses. They have the privilege of buying tickets below the
published fares and have the liberty of buying them until the
departure date of the said flight. However, they also have their
own setbacks. The ticket that they could buy only goes on a
specific route which narrows their market. Another thing is they
have to negotiate well because it means profit!
