By Grace Lin, Sandra Chang, Esther Mao, Joanna Chou and Jonathan Chen Traveling Agency 101 We are looking to focus on anyone who travels globally
Anyone looking for an itinerary planner for vacations
People interested in having us plan their hotel lodging, hotel services, etc.
college students, international students, businessmen, families on vacation, etc. Target Market Traveling Agency is a service that provides air transportation for a lower price. We consolidate people who have a mutual destination together, and act as a liaison between the airline company and our customers to arrange logistics according to their needs. Through this traveling agency, a mutually beneficial relationship is established with the airline companies - their business increases, while prices for our customers decrease. Who Are We? Not only do we provide cheap, convenient flight booking service for everyone, but our service is unique because we focus our scope on the adventure aspect of vacation.
You won't find these low prices anywhere else! Because we established a mutually beneficial relationship with the airline company we're partnering with, they in return give us a subsidized price, while their business increases. Why Choose Us?
