Chapter Chapter 11 in Companies and Entrepreneurs in the History of Spain, 2021, pp 181-199 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This chapter analyses the first Spanish travel agencies within the tourism system that was formed in the first decades of the twentieth century. If we understand modern tourism as an industry, travel agencies began to be an important part of it. Since the end of the nineteenth century, it had been foreign companies that had operated in the Spanish market, but since the beginning of the twentieth century we also noted the appearance of Spanish companies. In this chapter we will focus primarily on two, Viajes Marsans and Viajes Cafranga, analysing their evolution until the early 1950s, that is, the years before the mass tourism boom.
