T&A marketplaces typically collaborate with direct suppliers as well as tour operators and DMCs and provide extranet interfaces for listing management. Inventory is sold to travelers either directly or through resellers like online travel agencies and affiliate partners. As previously stated, travel bloggers and eCommerce websites can earn commissions on bookings by displaying affiliate links, banners, or widgets on their platforms.
Distributors can connect to and automatically source all product information through a set of APIs provided by major marketplaces, which support a more complicated integration.
The resellers can then enable booking on their own platform or redirect to the marketplace for reservation and payment processing, depending on the partnership mode.
