Expedia Malaysia Media Launch
Expedia is officially here in Malaysia. Expedia Malaysia or Expedia.com.my has announced the launch of its full-service offering, giving Malaysian consumers an awesome breadth of affordable flight deals and hotel options across the region and beyond.
For those who met or knew me, I am very supportive of digital marketing in travel industry. As most many people searched their ideal destinations using the Internet, the marketing side of it is still very skeptical towards sites and blogs like us. For those who didn’t know, Expedia.com is one of the most popular and successful travel websites in the world.
With over 400 airlines and 150,000 hotels globally, as well as dynamic holiday packages at unbeatable value, Expedia.com.my offers travelers from Malaysia a one-stop shop for all of their holiday planning needs. Expedia.com.my will be the only online site in Malaysia that will offer all of the very best flight deals from AirAsia, Malaysia Airlines and other carriers in one place.
