The case presents the main features of the tour operating industry in Europe and describes how Nouvelles Frontieres was able to grow so rapidly and so extensively in the context of this industry. The main focus of the case is on working out what Nouvelles Frontieres' competitive advantage is based on.

Travel related services are the sector most affected by e-Commerce. Moreover, Nouvelles Frontieres' main source of competitive advantage is its integrated network of exclusive travel agencies which is being undermined by the exponential growth of online sales.
