Dial in on distribution options with this list of online travel agencies focused on particular geographics for both customers and destinations

Reading Time: 3 minutes 24 seconds

Recently Arival published a list of online travel agencies (OTAs) specializing in a particular niche or segment of the tours, activities and attractions industry, from culinary experiences to outdoor adventure activities to wellness. 

In addition to these niche market segments, there are a number of other OTAs who have chosen to focus on particular geographics. Some focus on serving customers of a particular language or region while others focus on offering tours, activities and attractions within a particular destination or set of destinations. 

Operator Takeaway: If you are an operator looking to grow your bookings with distribution, take note of the OTAs that are focused on your particular client base or region.

Below is a list of more than 30 OTAs focused on offering tours, activities and attractions within a particular geography for their customer base, destinations, or both. Have we missed a brand? Let us know: [email protected]
