Expedia, Comtec ink deal

31st May 2006

Expedia is enhancing its brochure packages search, cost and book service by implementing Comtec’s advanced travel eCommerce service, WebSell Pro.

Comtec’s newest module in its WebSell product range offers a fully customisable “look and feel” for travel organisations requiring the ability to optimise the booking journey and tailor their travel booking website’s layout, content and design. 

The brochure packages service on www.expedia.co.uk and the upgrade to WebSell Pro, has been undertaken to enable Expedia to deliver more flexible services and an improved customer experience.

Commenting, Robin Sutherland, Director Of Retail at Expedia said “As the UK’s leading online travel agent, we constantly strive to enhance our customers’ online experience. WebSell Pro enables us to apply the knowledge we’ve gained since launching www.expedia.co.uk in 1998, by tailoring the customer experience based on our research and the customer’s preferences and needs. This will further improve our package holiday offerings and take-up”.

Comtec also supplies Expedia with a charter flight search and booking services via its Application Program Interface (API) which seamlessly integrates charter airline data into www.expedia.co.uk via Comtec’s Transaction Centre.


Richard Turner, Sales Director at Comtec, added “As a company which sets a benchmark for online travel services, we’re delighted that Expedia has chosen to implement Comtec’s next generation travel eCommerce solution. Our portfolio of WebSell services including White-Label, Professional and Bespoke modules ensures travel organisations of all types and sizes can exploit eCommerce opportunities in a manner that is consistent with their business priorities and budget”.
