Etraveli applies a scalable and profitable business model based on a proprietary IT platform, expertise in travel e-commerce and economies of scale.
The proprietary IT platform enables us to consistently improve our operation and quickly adapt to changing marketing conditions as well as rapidly launch our services in new markets.
The expertise in travel e-commerce built up since the start of the operation in 2000 is an instrumental factor in being competitive in areas such as the content of the offering, the presentation, add on products, pricing and sales - areas that together make up a profitable operation.
Economies of scale are critical to efficient IT operations and marketing as well as to secure the best terms from airlines and other suppliers. Thanks to the proven ability to leverage large volumes and integrate acquisitions, we generate strong cash flow and good margins – a great and cost-efficient platform for further expansion.
In the travel agency operations, revenue is mainly generated from the mark-up on airline tickets, hotel accommodations and car rentals as well as the sale of additional products such as insurance and cancellation protection. Moreover, the company receives commissions or incentives from its suppliers based on the number of bookings it delivers. For the price comparison sites revenues are generated from referral commissions per click or per order from travel agencies and airlines.
