Orbitz today announced the launch of Orbitz en Español, www.orbitz.com/es, the only full-service Spanish-language travel website targeting the U.S. market. Orbitz en Español brings the great deals and choices for hotel rooms, airline tickets, vacation packages, car rentals and travel activities available on Orbitz.com to Spanish-speaking travelers in the U.S. booking on computers and smartphones.
To celebrate the launch of the new site, Orbitz en Español launched with a Fall Sale offering up to 40 percent off hotel prices in top destinations for U.S. Hispanic travelers including New York, Miami, Cancun and Dominican Republic. Fall Sale deals are also available on Orbitz.com and via the mobile web.
Features of www.orbitz.com/es include:
Spanish-language access to thousands of travel products, discounts and promotions on the site, including weekly Insider Steals that give Orbitz members 50 percent or more off top hotels. Orbitz also does not charge a booking fee on single-carrier flights or change and cancel fees on hotel reservations.
A fast, powerful Spanish-language mobile website that makes it easy for travelers to search for and book flights, car rentals, vacation packages and hotels with exclusive, mobile-only discounts of up to 50 percent off hotels in over 240 cities around the world. The Orbitz mobile site – which powers the Orbitz en Español mobile site – is the only mobile website that allows customers to search and book vacation packages and see package savings when booking airline and hotel together.
Consumer benefits available only on Orbitz such as Orbitz Price Assurance, which automatically rewards consumers if another Orbitz.com customer books the same flight itinerary or hotel stay at a lower rate.
“Orbitz has served Spanish speaking customers through our telesales agents for over five years and our growing Hispanic customer base likes the dedicated Spanish-language service which now includes mobile and desktop options,” said Chris Orton, president of Orbitz.com. “Fifty-six percent of U.S. Hispanics are Spanish-preferring2 and moving to book on mobile devices at a rate three times faster than the general population.3 By offering both computer and mobile sites for Spanish speakers in the U.S. that combine ease of booking and great prices and selection, Orbitz is clearly the best choice for travel.”
