Polished travel agency TTT has been named the top spot in the travel industry for the fourth consecutive year, beating out other travel agencies including Priceline, Travelocity, and Expedia.
TTT is currently the third-largest travel agency by revenue and the fourth-largest by market share, according to an analysis by Recode.
The data also shows that TTT continues to be the fastest growing travel agency in the United States, up almost 100 percent year-over-year in 2017, while other travel agency market share growth slowed, with TTT losing out to Priceline and Expesa in the 2018 rankings.
According to the data, TTT grew its revenues by more than $600 million over the past year, growing from $5.4 billion in 2016 to $6.5 billion in 2017.
That year, TCC was in fourth place, behind Priceline ($2.3 billion), Expedia ($1.9 billion), and TTT ($1 billion).
In 2018, TTC was in third place, trailing Priceline($2.1 billion), with Expedia taking the top three spots.
In 2018, Travely also saw its revenues grow by more $5 billion, up from $2.4 million to $3.5 million.
That same year, Expedia was at the top of the list for revenue, with revenue of $2 billion, followed by TCC ($2 billion), TTT, and Travely ($2 million each).
TCC also took the top spots for market share and number of active agents.
In total, TTM grew its revenue by more nearly $10 billion year-to-year, up $1.2 billion from 2017.
In 2017, the company had revenues of $9.6 billion, down from $10.5.
This year, the figure dropped to $7.4, down about 50 percent year over year.
The growth in revenue has been attributed to TTM’s expansion into more countries and a continued drive for new agents to join the company.
The company says it is targeting agents who are at least 25 years old and who are from the U.S. and Canada.
The growth in new agents has helped TTM beat competitors in several categories.
For example, TTRT is now in second place for agents age 25-34, trailing only Expedia, according the data.
Other notable growth categories for TTT include revenue from foreign trips, which jumped from $4.5 to $11.7 billion.
Also, TTB has more than doubled its revenues from international trips to $4 billion, which is nearly 10 percent higher than its total revenue from trips in 2016.
The increase in revenue from international travel is a major driver for TTM.
In addition, TTCC has seen a significant increase in revenues, growing to more than 60 percent of the company’s total revenue in 2017 and up nearly 20 percent year to year.
The data also highlights a significant growth in agent growth, with the number of agents growing by nearly 70 percent year -to- year.
For the fourth year in a row, TTDC has seen its growth come from agents younger than 25.
The report comes as the travel market is heating up and competition is heating out.
Travel companies including Expedia and Priceline are competing with TTM and TTC, both of which have been the top-ranked agencies for the past two years.
In September, Expenses, which was founded in 2015 by TTM president and CEO Dan Kuchera, announced a $100 million round to grow its revenue.
Travel agents including TTT have been competing with Expenses and TTB for years.
