ONLINE travel booking company Expedia has started operations in South-east Asia with the launch of www.expedia.com.sg.
The new website is Expedia’s fifth in Asia-Pacific, adding to its existing regional presence in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and India. Expedia also has a presence in China through a controlling investment in eLong.
“South-east Asia represents an extremely important part of our Asia-Pacific growth strategy. The launch of the Expedia Singapore website is the first step of further investment in this region, with new sites in Malaysia, Korea and Thailand to follow within the first half of this year,” said Dan Lynn, vice president and managing director, Expedia Asia Pacific.
The new Singapore site provides travellers with a suite of online booking and travel management tools to help plan and reserve accommodation and flights, while localised customer service is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day via telephone or email.
