Today, several providers of travel management services are offering sustainable travel options and one-stop solutions to reduce the dependence of buyers on different category stakeholders such as visa processing, local transport, and destination management service providers. This is leading to the reduction in management effort for category buyers, which, in turn, drives the demand for TMCs in the market.
