Travel Scope
The travel industry encompasses a variety of different categories each grouped with an
NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) code.
In Scope
NAICS 481 – Transportation by Air
Key Points
4811 – Scheduled Air Transportation
481111 – Scheduled Passenger Air Transportation
NAICS 721 – Accommodation
7211 – Traveler Accommodation
721110 – Hotels and Motels
721110.1 Guestroom Rental
NAICS 5321 – Automotive Equipment Rental
53211 – Passenger Car Rental and Leasing
532111 – Passenger Car Rental (for business travel)
NAICS 561 – Administrative and Support Services
5615 – Travel Arrangement and Reservation Services
561510 – Travel Agencies (including Meetings & Events)
Source: http://www.bls.gov
Page: 9
• Scheduled passenger air
transportation, hotel, passenger car
rentals and meeting/event planning
services are in scope for travel
sourcing.
• Because of the existing relationship
with current travel agency and the
subsequent process standardization,
it does not make sense to fully source
the travel agency component of travel
at this time. However, there may be
components of the contract to
reevaluate.
• Meeting/Event Planning Services are
categorized under the same NAICS
code as Travel Agencies.
AIRLINE INDUSTRY – US Airline Mergers
•
In 2000, 10 airlines accounted for slightly more than 90% of available seat-mile capacity in the
United States. By early 2012, those 10 airlines, through mergers, were reduced to 5 airlines
controlling about 85% of the domestic passenger market. Moreover, American and US Airways is
currently merging —which would further reduce the number of airlines controlling the vast majority
of passenger ridership to only four.

2013 Airline Industry revenue reached $711 Billion.
For 2014, Airline Industry revenue forecasts to reach
$746 Billion.
Over the five years to 2018, industry revenue is
expected to increase at an annualized rate of 3.6% to
$848.2 billion
US Airline Industry revenue is expected to continue
flying upward over the five years to 2019, increasing
at an annualized rate of 1.5% to $153.6 billion.
Major operators such as American Airlines, Delta and
United Continental will reap synergies from their
recent mergers, leading to higher profit margins.
However, profit margins will still depend on volatile
fuel prices and the airlines’ ability to successfully
hedge against any adverse movements. New fuelefficient aircraft will aid this cause and increase
operator competitiveness in the global market.
U.S. scheduled passenger airlines reported a net
profit of $12.7 billion in 2013, up from a profit of $98
million in 2012
Business travel represents 35% of airline’s revenue
Federal taxes constitute $61 – or 20% – of the price
of a typical $300 domestic one-stop round-trip ticket
In 2012, U.S. airlines carried 16% more passengers
and cargo than in 2000, while using two billion fewer
gallons of fuel
From 2000-2013, U.S. airlines reduced the flight
cancellation rate sharply from 3.30% to 1.51%
Airline Industry: PPI (Producer Price Index) – Scheduled Passenger Air Transportation
The PPI (measures average change in prices over time) for passenger air transportation. For 2012 the average amounted to
285.0 which represents a gain of 9.5% from 2011, but for 2014 the average is trending slightly upward.

Airline Industry: Cost Drivers
Top 3 Drivers Account For 64.3% of Total Airline Costs.
Key Points
2013 Cost Drivers
• The top three cost drivers for ninety
five percent of the world’s airlines,
are: fuel, personnel and the cost of
aircraft, which together account for an
average of 64.3% of an airline’s total
cost structure.
• Dependence on oil production, labor
agreements and a duopoly in aircraft
manufacturing prevent airlines from
having any substantive impact on
these cost drivers.
• With revenues fixed by competitive
ticket pricing and the majority of their
costs out of their control, airlines are
challenged to maintain earnings and
gain competitive advantage by
controlling less than 35% of their cost
structure.

Historically jet fuel expenses have ranged
between 10% and 15% of U.S passenger
airline operating costs, but in 2008 the cost
of fuel was between 30% – 40% of total
operating expenses for most carriers
The Air Transport Association estimates that
for every dollar increase in the price of jet
fuel (a derivative product of crude oil), US
airlines incur an additional $445.0 million in
fuel expenses
From 2000 – 2010, US airlines carried 15%
more traffic while using 2.1 Billion fewer
gallons of fuel.
For 2013 jet fuel prices averaging $124.60
per barrel. Current 2014 price is $124.30 per
barrel.
Impact on 2013 fuel bill: $-4 Billion (global
airline industry)
From 1978-2012, U.S. airlines improved fuel
efficiency approximately 120%

The cost of airfare flying out of Phoenix, AZ
has been lower than the U.S. average. But
flying out of Tucson, AZ is trending at the
national average and starting to be above the
national average.
Airfares will be nearly flat in Canada and
the United States next year, driven by a
highly consolidated and fiercely competitive
landscape, stable projected oil prices, and
potential reduction in demand from the U.S.
government, driven by its sequestration
efforts.
Airlines found several ways to grow revenue
without raising fares – a la carte pricing: from
charging for select coach seat assignments,
boarding after elite status members, baggage
fees and fuel surcharges and possibly using
restrooms!
In 2011, US airlines posted the lowest annual
rate of mishandled baggage ever recorded.
2013 ancillary revenue reached over $42
billion this year, up from $36.1 billion in 2013.
Ancillaries will account for 6% of total airline
revenue in 2013, up from 5.4% last year.

Airline Industry: Market Segment & Competitive Landscape
SAMPLE
Key Points
• Level Concentration in this industry is
Medium
•
The Domestic Airlines industry has a moderate level of
concentration. The top four industry players are
estimated to hold a combined market share of more
than 66.4% in 2014.
• Level & Trend Competition in this industry is
High and the trend is Increasing
•
The Domestic Airlines industry is highly competitive.
Airlines compete for customers on price, frequency
and capacity, route offerings, loyalty programs,
promotions, rewards and service quality.
• Barriers to Entry in this industry are High
and Steady
•
Costs to purchase aircraft and specialist machinery,

The Domestic Airlines industry has a low level of
globalization, with access to domestic routes strictly
controlled for US-based airlines; foreign ownership is
discouraged. Foreign operators may provide services
to the domestic market, but are generally restricted to
limited routes and destinations.

located in North American
Major revenue for global chains (such as
Marriott, Hilton, etc) is from franchise
and management fees.
Business travelers, including executives,
are shifting from luxury hotels to more
moderate mid-priced hotels
Hotel taxes, usually a combination of
sales and occupancy taxes along with
the occasional flat fee, range from 10%
to more than 18%.
Hotel costs represent the single largest
component of non-air expenses, about
43% of the travel dollar

US Hotel Industry – Competitive Landscape
Key Findings
• Level Concentration in this industry is Medium
• In 2014, the four largest operators in the industry (Hilton
Worldwide, Marriott International, InterContinental Hotels
Group and Starwood Hotels and Resorts) account for an
estimated 41.0% of industry revenue
• It is increasing as hotel buyouts and mergers become
more frequent and operators join franchise and chain
operators.
• Level & Trend Competition in this industry is
High and the trend is Increasing
• At most price points, hotels look to attract travelers by
offering competitive prices with a range and quality of
service to maximize client satisfaction, while minimizing
room vacancy rates. Room discounting increases during
difficult economic periods, with fewer discounts offered in
boom times.
• Barriers to Entry in this industry are Medium
and Steady
• The start-up costs and market share concentration
vary between industry segments, particularly for the
international standard five-star properties compared
with three-star motels.
• Globalization in this industry is Medium
and the trend is Increasing
• Most operators in this industry are US-owned and
earn most of their sales from domestic activity.

which 30% is business travel at airports
and 35% off-airport.
The industry is segmented by business
travelers, leisure travelers, car leasing
and car sharing
Leisure market has grown larger than
corporate business market
Industry revenue is forecast to grow at
an annualized rate of 3.0% over the five
years to 2019 to $42.2 billion
High fuel cost is impacting industry as
customers, especially leisure travelers,
are finding other alternatives (public
transportation)
Hertz and Avis expanding off-airport
locations to compete with Enterprise
Car rental industry adjusted to global
recession better than other travel
industry categories. They can “right”

Car Rental Industry: Market Share
The U.S. car rental market is highly consolidated among a small number of major players and is getting smaller.
Key Points
Top 3 Car Rental Companies By Revenue
• After Hertz’s purchase of Dollar Thrifty, the top three rental car
companies will make up 95% of the total on-airport US car
rental industry revenues
• Suppliers offer different brands that focus on specialized
markets:
• Corporate Traveler – On-airport convenience – Hertz, Avis and
National
• Leisure Market – On/Off-airport Budget, Dollar Thrifty, and
Enterprise
• Additional Non-US regional players include:
• Europcar (Europe and Asia Pacific)
• Sixt (Germany and EMEA)
• In high risk countries such as India, China, Thailand, Latin
America, etc. the business model is to rent a car with driver.
Cost is less than a chauffer / limo as a typical rental vehicle is
used
• Car rental companies have implemented a variety of new
ancillary fees to help preserve some of the lost revenue in
recent times, such as tacking on fees to extend a reservation,
eliminating 60 minute grace period, or increasing the cost of a
two-day rental
• “Virtual rental technology” – enables customers to reserve, rent,
access and return cars just about anywhere. ZipCar, WeCar,
Connect.
• It is forecasted that that base rates will increase on average
between 0% to 2% for business travel rental cars in the U.S. for
2014. This is big news since US suppliers haven’t been able to
increase rates, even slightly. This is due to increasing fleet
costs for car rental providers, as their used vehicles sell for less
than in recent years as consumers shift toward buying more
new and fewer used vehicles. Even so, the highly consolidated
market will retain strong competition among suppliers in 2014.

Car Rental Industry: Cost Drivers
SAMPLE
Over 78% of costs in the car rental industry is distributed among four categories: (1)
Purchases, (2) Other, (3) Depreciation, and (4) Wages.
Operating Cost Drivers
Key Findings
• The industry have slowly recovered as the demand
for air travel, which is the industry’s primary revenue
source, started to increase as of 2010.
• The industry’s solid recovery is expected to continue
over the next five years. Demand is expected to
increase as domestic travel rates continue to grow,
bolstered by the US economy’s recovery.
• Industry revenue is forecast to grow at an annualized
rate of 3.0% over the five years to 2019 to $42.2
billion.
• Corporate profit is currently at an all-time high,
growing an impressive 9.2% per year on average
over the five years to 2014
• Over the past five years, many industry operators
have continued to expand into off-airport markets,
providing additional avenues for growth. Car rental
operators have learned from the recession and have
sought to diversify their revenue streams, so as to
mitigate exposure to any one segment of the
economy.
• Car sharing has continued to emerge over the past
five years as both traditional car rental companies
and new players seek to gain market share in this
new segment of the industry. Each of the major car
rental companies now has a car sharing division.

US Car Rental Industry – Competitive Landscape
Key Findings
• This industry is Mature
• New technologies, such as online reservations, provide
advantages like reduced customer acquisition costs. But
these advantages flow on to existing companies and do
not produce new entrants or new markets. Some
companies are expanding into local markets with programs
like car sharing.
• Basis for Competition: High and the trend is
increasing
• All companies in this industry compete primarily on price
and customer service.
• Companies also compete through branding and market
segmentation.
• Strategic alliances with airlines and hotels can produce a
competitive edge.
• External competition stems from other modes of travel
including taxis, limousines and public transport.
• Barriers to Entry in this industry are Medium
and Steady
• Rental fleet investment is a significant monetary outlay.
• Potential new entrants would have difficulty establishing a
brand identity because the current brands are heavily
entrenched.
• Globalization in this industry is Low and the
trend is Steady

Smaller firms continued to grow impressively, with
and without acquisitions. Ovation Travel moved
from $828 million to $910 million, and Direct Travel
soared from $575 million to $767 million as it
continued an aggressive acquisition strategy.
Over the five years to 2019 IBISWorld expects

Global TMC Industry: Overview
Global industry spend is $36.4 billion of which 30% is business travel at airports
Key Points
• Leisure travel is the largest market for
the industry. This market is made up
of travelers taking both domestic and
international trips. The total number
of international tourism departures is
expected to have exceeded 1 billion
in 2014. The top three countries for
departures are Germany, the United
States and China. Many travelers
going overseas still use travel agency
services for part or all of their trip
components, such as
accommodations and airline
bookings. However, in mature
markets such as the United States
travelers are increasingly likely to use
online services to book their domestic
trip, or make arrangements directly
with hotels and airlines.

SAMPLE
Strategy Considerations
•
Company should examine current travel policies. Enforcement of on-line booking tool, advance
booking, preferred hotels and other travel guidelines will result in significant savings.
•
Because of the relative small air travel spend compared to other companies, in addition to moving
corporate headquarters to Dallas while still maintaining their Detroit area locations, Company
should consider focusing hard dollar airline discounts with one or two major carriers supporting
both markets. Furthermore, Company should consider exploring additional benefits for their
secondary markets
•
Company should re-examine their current preferred hotel program and consolidate markets and
room nights to leverage buying power
•
Company should leverage hotel spend for meetings/events in negotiating hotel rates for transient
travel
•
Preferred car rental utilization is “best in class”, therefore consider a competitive bid to leverage
utilization
•
Company may consider utilizing teleconferencing as an alternative to reduce their overall travel
usage

Top 3 airline spend: Northwest, American and
Southwest
Current contract with Northwest only (no
discount in Tier 3 and high market share
commitment)
70% of air spend in Tier 3
Some international air spend – about 15%
Sourcing Recommendation
• Create separate travel policy with management
enforcement
• Enter into negotiations with Northwest (current
contracted supplier) and American Airlines. In
addition, pursue possible corporate deal with
Southwest Airlines.
• Stimulate competition between Northwest
and American Airlines in multi-hub city pairs
• Stimulate competition between Northwest
and American Airlines for international air
spend
• Negotiate with Southwest and determine if
market share can support a formal corporate
agreement
• Market dynamics suggest a 2 year contract
Results
• Separate travel policy resulting in improved compliance
• Discount in Tier 3 level pricing
• Capture all Southwest spend

Travel Agency manages and negotiates hotel
program
Large number of properties are being utilized in top
city markets (e.g. 75 hotels were utilized in the
Detroit (and surrounding) area in the last 12
months)
Cities are classified as Room Nights per City:
• Tier 1 (approx. 200+ Nights): 45% of hotel
spend in 12 market areas
• Tier 2 (<200 Nights): 55% of hotel spend in
the rest of the market area
Sourcing Recommendation
• Create separate travel policy and enforcement of
policy
• Tier 1: Issue a Request for Proposal to the
existing supply base as well as comparable
properties in defined geographies.
• Consolidate volume to increase bargaining
power
• Minimize number of options available in each
geography
• Pursue value-added amenities at no
additional cost
• Tier 2: Utilize Travel Agency rates and drive
volume to those properties with the lowest rates
Results
• Separate travel policy and enforcement which will result in improved compliance
• Competitive room rates in preferred cities
• Strategically selected properties by geography which will increase preferred property usage

Negotiations Approach – Discussion Points
SAMPLE
Based on a review of Company’s current program, contract terms, and stakeholder requirements, the
following improvement areas have been identified to maximize the annual incentive rebate.
Negotiation Point
Description
Supplier
Pricing, Incentive Rebate
Structure
• Size down the gap between rebate tiers to reduce the risk associated with dropping
to a lower tier. Closing the gap between tiers will inset Company to drive more
spend to Amex.
• Ensure incentive BPS earned at each tier are best in class for domestic and nondomestic spend.
• ABC
Pricing, Signing Bonus
• Reduce/eliminate minimum signing bonus *NACV thresholds (claw back clause) to
avoid refunding any portion of the $1M signing bonus paid to Company in 2008.
• Take a position which suggest Company is doing Amex a favor by offering them
other potential business. ABC should fight to keep this business considering
transition cost will be minimal for them, thus their margin will not be adversely be
effected.
• ABC
Pricing, Performance
Bonus
• Establish a realistic performance target based on the post spin *NACV, the current
(pre spin) performance target is too aggressive.
• Maximize the annual performance bonus.
• ABC
Pricing, Deductions
• Minimize consulting assessment expenses (hourly rate) and Membership Reward
(MR) fees which are deducted directly from the incentive rebate.
• Negotiate an annual credit which can be applied to consulting and MR expenses.
• ABC
Pricing, High ROC
Transactions
• Reduce the 50 BSP reduction on P-card transactions > $10K (Hi-ROC volume).
• Negotiate a buffer which can be applied to the Hi-ROC volume, i.e. request that the
BSP penalty apply only to Hi-ROC volume which exceeds a specified amount.
• ABC
*NACV – Net Annual Charge Volume (i.e. annual spend with Amex)
