Travelport and Expedia have shed light on an expanded European partnership which will see Expedia extend its use of Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform in multiple European countries.
Expedia and its brands, including its corporate arm, Egencia, will continue to utilise Travelport’s Universal Application Programming Interface (Universal API) to access hotel and car content and to power new services that will give their customers more information, choice and flexibility when booking online.
Adding to this, the online travel agency will also make use of Travelport’s Rapid Reprice and ePricing technology – two products that are designed to boost the speed and efficiency of the overall air shopping experience for consumers.
Vice president, strategy and business development, Expedia group, Steve Jarvis declared: “Expedia’s commitment is to be the very best place to shop for travel, and Travelport’s Travel Commerce Platform offers innovative technology and particularly extensive hotel and car content.”
Also commenting on the news was group vice president, enterprise customer group, Travelport, Scott Hyden: “We’re delighted to be expanding our European agreement with Expedia and look forward to continuing to grow our long standing global relationship in the months and years ahead as we work closely with them to support their highly customer-focused approach and overall growth ambitions.”
