Expedia.com is likely one of the first names that pops into mind when you think of planning and booking your travels. The discount site and app has become a one-stop solution for planning and booking trip with a wide selection of hotels, hostels and even travel services.
With the year end drawing closer, the Expedia.com is gearing up to allow travellers to save even more on their platform. The newly launched Expedia Add-On advantage allows users to save up to 58% on hotel bookings and travel activities with every travel booking. The travel booking can be in the form of a flight or package.
Travelers won’t need to book their lodging immediately. Instead, up on successfully booking their travel, users will have until the day of their departure to take advantage of the Expedia Add-On Advantage.
The new Expedia Add-On Advantage program was designed to cater to the needs of the modern traveller. According to a research commissioned by Expedia.com, the modern traveller looks for value, convenience and flexibility. All of which the company believes is delivered by their new program.
“Over the years, we have introduced product enhancements to put the power of experiencing the world right into the traveller’s hands. Our focus was to make it easier, more accessible and enjoyable for people to research and book travel with a seamless experience on any device. The launch of Expedia Add-On Advantage today is yet another example or of how we are putting the insights we’ve gathered from our consumers, suppliers and industry partners to work by improving on our travel booking experience. No longer will our travellers need to visit multiple sites when they know they’re getting access to guaranteed discounts on accommodation simply from booking a flight or package. Better yet, it takes away the pressure of planning and paying for everything up front, which is something our Malaysia savvy travellers will truly appreciate,”
