ABSTRACT
The article reports that travel company Holiday Taxis is expecting to double its business this year as the number of agents selling dynamically packaged holidays increases. The proportion of agents in its distribution network of 4,500 who regularly use its service has risen from 20% to 40% year on year. Managing director Paul Stanyer expects this to increase to 50%-60%. He said the rise reflects the growth of dynamic packaging. Barrhead Travel and online booking tools developer Traveltek currently use Holiday Taxis' XML links, and Thomas Cook AG's dynamic packaging site Flexibletrips.com also features Holiday Taxis product.
