Expedia’s WWTE Selected to Power Bookings on visitjamaica.com

Expedia, Inc. today announced that its WWTE(TM) private label service has
joined with the Jamaica Tourist Board
to let travelers book vacation
packages, hotels, air, car and destination services at visitjamaica.com.
“February is an important month for our local tourism industry, as many
travelers book Jamaican vacations to escape the cold winter weather,” said
Paul Pennicook, Director of Tourism for Jamaica. “The WWTE relationship
allows potential visitors to search and select a trip that’s right for
them from visitjamaica.com’s enhanced menu of travel services.”

The WWTE private label service offers a back-end solution for suppliers
and travel portals, such as visitjamaica.com, to utilize Expedia(R)‘s
in-depth inventory of travel products while maintaining a consistent brand
image to Web site visitors. Travelers who book through visitjamaica.com
can search and assemble a complete trip from Expedia’s wide-selection of
airlines, hotels and resorts, ground transportation and destination
services, including scuba diving lessons or an island adventure tour.

“The addition of WWTE’s broad selection of travel services and attractions
to the Jamaica Tourist Board site will be a great convenience to their
customers looking to get in-depth information about the island as well as
book their travel in one convenient location,” said Barney Harford, vice
president of air, car and private label at Expedia, Inc. “We look forward
to stimulating Jamaica’s tourism industry through the enhanced offering
now available on visitjamaica.com.”
