Mooresville, NC (June 27, 2024) – Gifted Travel Network (GTN) is pleased to announce its host agency was listed in the Travel Weekly 2024 Power List, ranking the industry’s top retail travel agencies.

The Power List is an annual survey of the industry's largest and most successful travel agencies based on full-year 2023 sales. This year’s list is the largest yet, with 72 agencies recording more than $110 million in annual sales.

The Power List did not see dramatic change at the very top, with powerhouse online giants Booking Holdings (over $150 billion) and Expedia Group (more than $100 billion) leading the way. This year’s list includes 25 agencies with over $1B in sales, 38 agencies with over $500M in sales and 56 with over $200M in sales. There is notable growth in host agencies and franchise organizations that are powered by independent travel sellers.

“The power of the travel agency industry to influence and impact traveler decisions is growing immensely as consumers continue to increase the value of travel in their lives,” said Bob Sullivan, Chief Commercial Officer and President of Northstar Travel Group. “Our audience is committed to moving that needle for the travel industry.”

The list has been tracking the sales of travel agency organizations for more than 30 years, and this year's survey reflected the rebound of travel that followed the pandemic.

To qualify for the 2024 Power List, a company had to record a minimum of $110 million in travel sales in 2023, a change from previous years when only $100 million was required. For purposes of the survey, sales are defined as gross sales of travel products worldwide, whether to consumers or to corporate travelers and the company must be the agent of record on the transactions from a supplier’s perspective. At least 15% of the sales volume must have been generated in the U.S.
