The majority of the states are seeing that the business model, as it is, works just fine, said Robin Reck, communications director for the Travel Technology Association. For the online travel companies, its a lot of money, but the people it also effects are the local travel agents. So far, the online travel companies are winning the legislative fight. Sixteen state legislatures took up similar bills proposing to change the policy in 2013, but it only passed in one state, Oregon.
Replying to Curtorim Congress MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco's question on fake travel agencies, the Saligao MLA said action against the 10 agencies, under relevant provisions of the Goa Registration of Tourist Trade Act, is under way. Of the 10, six operate in the costal belt of north Goa, specifically around Calangute, Morjim, Candolim, etc, while in the south, all four fake travel agencies operate from Margao. Around 100 small and big travel agencies operate in Goa.
