What is Expedia
Expedia is not your typical company. To start with, we’re actually the Expedia, Inc. group and have a portfolio of brands that include Expedia®, Hotels.com®, Venere.com™, Hotwire®, Egencia®, and more. We offer flights, hotels, cars, cruises, packages, and activities to both leisure and business travelers around the world. As a start-up, we revolutionized the travel industry, forever changing the way people travel. In the 15 years since that time, we have grown our business to include more than 140 branded travel sites in close to 70 countries across the globe.
Think every day is the same here? Think again. At Expedia we are revolutionizing travel through the power of technology. Every second of every day, we send two travelers on a trip. We sell enough tickets to fill nearly six hundred 737 airplanes every day, and our mobile apps have been downloaded more than 10 million times across 180 countries. We work in a fast-paced environment to keep up with the ever changing travel landscape. The opportunities to inspire travel for the global customer are endless.
