Like every industry, the travel business has its own special jargon. That can make it easy for people in the industry to communicate, but for newcomers or outsiders the special terms, abbreviations, acronyms, slang, and nicknames can be confusing and intimidating.
So we are proud to present what we believe to be the most extensive dictionary of travel industry terms available anywhere. And if we've missed one, let us know. We'll research it, define it, and post the definition here for everyone's benefit.
To find the abbreviation, acronym, or term you're looking for, just click on the initial letter at the top of each page.
