Feb 15, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jxsl5g/the_north) has announced the addition of the "The North American Travel Intermediaries Market" report to their offering.
The North American travel intermediaries industry began to recover in 2010 after a major downturn in 2009, when industry revenue declined by 6.3% and traditional agencies lost sales to online channels. The economic recession and rise in unemployment forced people to restrict their spending on discretionary purchases such as travel, and as demand weakened, companies reduced margins and commissions to retain business and maintain cash flow.
