High street travel agencies pushed out by online bargains

Buying holidays on the High Street is a dying pastime for British Tourists if the recent closure of 110 Going Places shops this month is any sort of measure. The huge popularity of online holiday booking has caused several small independent companies to go bust this year and now it seems that the big players are also falling foul of online bargain hunters.

Compared to the peak in 1989 when there were some 7513 high street travel agents that number has now slumped to 6124, although with many companies stating that they cannot sustain cut-price online holiday deals indefinitely, the fate of the High Street shop may not yet be sealed.
