Travel Management Companies - A travel management company (TMC) is a wholly owned corporation that owns and operates a large number of travel agencies worldwide. These companies usually have numerous locations, and specialize in corporate travel and travel consulting. Examples are: American Express GBT, BCD Travel, CWT / RoomIt, & Flight Centre.

Travel Consortia - A travel consortium specializes in providing services to independent travel agencies, and small to mid-sized travel agency groups. An agency that contracts with the consortium is considered a ‘member’ of the group and receives benefits for their membership. Examples are: ABC Global Services, Radius, and Travel Leaders Group now Internova Travel Group.

Travel Marketing Groups - Similar to consortia, travel marketing groups offer services to independent agencies. The primary difference is the emphasis on leisure trips for upscale travelers. Examples are: Virtuoso, Ensemble, and Signature Travel Network.
