The new addition unlocks guaranteed discounts from hundreds of thousands of participating hotels for travellers who book a flight or package (flight and hotel) on Expedia.co.th and come back to book a hotel up until the day of their departure. On average, Thai travellers can secure up to 51 per cent off the cost of their hotel purchase.
Expedia has long encouraged travellers to bundle their flight and hotel in a package for maximum savings due to the deep discounts offered by valued lodging partners. In a research commissioned by Expedia earlier this year, Thai travellers ranked number one as the most frequent fliers, with an average of 10.1 flights taken in a year. The research also indicates that only 36 per cent of Thais would bundle their flight and hotel with 37 per cent booking their flight first and then a hotel, missing out on potential savings by not bundling them together. The Expedia Add-On Advantage offers travellers a way to bundle and save, which the company believes will attract savvy travellers requiring more time and flexibility to book their trip.
At a media event held in Bangkok, Simon Fiquet, general manager of Southeast Asia and India at Brand Expedia said: “We put great emphasis in research and consumer studies to truly understand our travellers’ behaviours and needs. Our objective is to make travel easier, more accessible, seamless and enjoyable for people to research and book. The launch of the Expedia Add-On Advantage is another example of how we are listening to our travellers and helping to bring their next trip within reach.
“No longer will they need to visit multiple sites when they know they’re getting access to guaranteed discounts on accommodation simply from booking a flight or package. Better yet, it takes away the pressure of planning and paying for everything up front.”
