Expedia TAAP is reporting increased optimism as the travel industry heads into 2021 and has extended agents’ commission tier status to support its trade partners.
Stu Udy, director retail distribution, says agents will retain the agency tier they started with in 2020, extended to the end of 2021, unless they have reached the threshold to earn a better one.
Udy says there are also reasons to feel better about trading conditions in the months ahead.
Expedia remains confident that its Travel Agent Affiliation Progamme (Expedia TAAP) will make a strong comeback as consumers return to both leisure and corporate travel.
St Udy, Expedia’s director travel agent distribution, says consumers more than ever will want advice and confidence in where they are travelling and who they are travelling with in terms of suppliers.
