ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue of where the control of travel agents lies with the heightened mergers and consolidations of corporations in Australia. Gary Allomes related that the consolidation in the retail market would mean that agents are stripped of their influence as shareholders. However, agents have refuted the statement by saying that the control lies with the franchisee rather than the franchise because it is the franchisee that provide the skills.
