Topaz International Study

January 2016

Topaz International tracked booking data from Mid-January 2016 to Mid-February 2016 against data from airline-direct sites and OTAs like Expedia and Orbitz. They ran the numbers and then let us know how we stack up against the competition.

We're pretty happy with the results!
