List of Publicly Traded Travel Service Companies Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges
The world of travel service providers has changed from where it was many years ago and is now dominated by online travel companies. These online travel companies provide the full range of travel services to their customers. Customers can make reservations, purchase tickets, compare prices and read reviews involving air tickets, car rentals, cruises, hotels, tour and vacation packages and just about anything else travel related.
There are a few online companies that focus on specific market niches. For example, Tunju (TOUR) is a Chinese company that focuses on packaged tours. In addition, since many of these travel service providers operate numerous websites, many of their brands focus on specific segments of the travel industry.
There are also a couple of travel service websites on this list, Travelzoo (TZOO) and TripAdvisor (TRIP), that offer travel services to their members through finding and evaluating the best travel deals, providing millions of reviews from other travelers and/or offering numerous bookings, tools and products that help travelers find the best travel experience possible at the best price. It is sufficient to say that investors have many choices to choose from if they are looking to invest in a travel services company.
For those curious, Orbitz Worldwide was a publicly traded company on this list but they were acquired by Expedia in 2015. HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) was also on this list but was also acquired by Expedia in a deal that was completed in December of 2015.
