The article reports on competition between travel management companies (TMC) and hotel booking agents (HBA). TMCs are in charge of a traveler's air, rail and card needs while HBA takes care of hotel rooms. According to HRS commercial director Grant Appleton, HABs are able to get business travelers because of their ability to capture the non-GDS content while TMCs rely on booking tools based on global delivery system (GDS).
