Orbitz is launching a full-service Spanish-language website targeting the US market to enable Spanish-speaking travellers to easily access deals on hotel rooms, airline tickets, vacation packages, car rentals and travel activities available via their desktops or smartphones.
The new Orbitz en Español at www.orbitz.com/es, will offer a range of features and services, including: access to thousands of travel products, discounts and promotions on the site; a fast, powerful Spanish-language mobile website complete with mobile-only discounts of up to 50 percent off hotels and consumer benefits available 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.”
To mark the launch of the new site, Orbitz en Español launched with a Fall Sale offering up to 40 percent off hotel prices in destinations for U.S. Hispanic travellers including New York, Miami, Cancun and Dominican Republic.
Fall Sale deals are also available on Orbitz.com and via the mobile web.
