Wholesaler is a company that purchases large blocks of rooms, tickets, etc. and then resells to either the public or to other Travel professionals. A company that usually creates and

markets inclusive tours and FITS for sale through travel agents. Usually sells nothing at retail (as opposed to a travel agent who can sell any product)., but also does not always create his/her own product; also less likely to perform local services


Other definition:
Wholesaler is a company that usually creates and certainly markets inclusive tours and FITs for sale through travel agents. Often used interchangeably with tour operator, but several distinctions might be drawn: (1) A wholesaler presumably sells nothing at retail; a tour operator often does both; (2) A wholesaler does not always create his own products; a tour operator virtually always does; (3) a wholesales is less inclined than a tour operator to perform local services. Industry reportage often fails to make distinctions, and to confound things further, many travel companies perform any or all of the functions of travel agent, contractor, tour operator and wholesaler.


Other definition:
A Wholesaler develop and markets inclusive tours and individual travel programs to the consumer through travel agents. Wholesalers do not sell directly to the public.
