It's the wrong business, Gromit

I'm completely mystified about how many overseas companies appear to not understand what an online travel directory is. I get emails on a daily basis (today's first is from Ghana) from incoming tour operators who wish to introduce their company and do business with me; handling the ground arrangements, tours, excursions, transfers and accommodation bookings for my tour groups...

Where on earth do they get that idea from? Travel-Lists is a directory.... period ... not a travel agent or tour operator.

I suppose so many portals & quasi-directories have 'book this' buttons that they assume every directory operates affiliations, taking a commission on refered sales.
