Is the travel services in the report including both online booking and offline booking?
Answered by Lisa from SINGAPORE | Sep. 13, 2015 20:43
They should include both online and offline bookings, because the statisctics were counted according to the actual reports or transactions of the travel/hotel entities.

can I ask what is the definition of travel agency in 2013 figure? Does it include online booking companies, cus I am writing a research which studies the difference between face to face travel agencies and online booking companies. Not sure whether the number here is the number I am looking for? thanks.

Ran, the fact is that many traditional travel agencies also have their own websites to provide on-line booking service. Meanwhile, some online booking companies also acquire business license and register actual travel agencies. So I think Lisa is right. The data is a combination of online and offline bookings.

Thank you for your answer, I guess it is difficult to get the stats for pure F2F agency then. Or maybe it is a trend for traditional travel agency to adopt the online booking as one of the function they provide to customers.

Sorry may I ask whether Ctrip contribute part of the stats in 2013 report? According to my understanding, it is one of the biggest online booking company. Thanks

I think so because they register actual travel agencies too.
