The concepts of "tourist operator" and "travel agent" as the main subjects of the market of tourist services of Ukraine are revealed by means of a detailed study of scientific achievements of the precursors. The results of this study have been systematized and the provisional distribution of interpretations by scientists of the definition of "tourist operator" and "tourist agent" is conducted through the prism of legal status and the availability of appropriate licensing. The characteristic classification features of the main subjects of the tourist services market are described, namely: by type of ownership, number of employees, direction of specialization, legal status, system and base of taxation. Clarification of the terms "tourist operator" and "travel agent" is proposed. So, tour operators are entities that, in accordance with the current legislation of Ukraine, have the legal status of a legal entity and have received a license to carry out business activities, they are executors of work from the formation stage to the implementation of a tourism product by attracting a travel agent to cooperate based on a conclusion with him agency agreements. Whereas, travel agents are entities that act as an intermediary, namely: they sell the product formed by the tour operator in retail for a certain commission fee specified in the cooperation agreement between the relevant parties.
