Why do travel agencies seem to be disappearing at such a rapid pace? The main reason seems to be the rise of online booking.
Over the next 10 years, 40% of people surveyed said they would prefer to use an online booking service than a traditional travel agent.
This trend won’t last long, however. At some point, it seems likely that people will again begin to look towards travel agents to assist them in their travel needs.
