This article in Travel Weekly shows that DMO are starting to realize that in order to compete for business in a competitive marketplace they have to offer potential visitors to their destination the opportunity to buy and not pass them on to third parties at the risk of eventually losing that booking to a competitor destination. I’ve long advocated this for accommodation and even air access to destinations. To see it on a regional scale is a positive move for online travelers. After all, who better to sell the Caribbean than the CTO/CHA. Good move.
