Travel Agency Business Valuations

Travel agency valuations is a specialist area of valuation and require a specialist business valuer in this area who understands the complexity of commission payments from airlines, differing percentage remuneration, the value of cruise business to the bottom line of an agency, the concept of consumer pays, the legal and regulatory requirements of the travel compensation fund, knowledge of the best and worst computer booking systems in the industry and also knowledge of the major franchise groups operating in the travel industry.

Without this knowledge, it would not be possible to accurately value a typical travel agency in suburban Australia.

Travel Agency valuations do vary a little according to the size and profitability of the business, whether it is part of a national brand or group, and according to the travel demographic it services.
