“We are excited to launch the Flashback Fun contest for travelers in India. This contest is our fun endeavor to encourage more travelers to enjoy the plethora of travel opportunities offered by Expedia at unmatchable price points. We are absolutely eager to see the response this contest generates from travel buffs across India given Goa is considered as the destination to celebrate Christmas & New Years Eve for families and friends alike” Vikram Malhi, Country Head, Expedia India, said.
To participate, consumers simply have to upload picture from their past vacations on to Facebook and tag their friends appearing in the picture. Winners will be decided based on quality of the picture and number of friends tagged in the images. That apart, recognizing the buoyant demand for travel in November and December, Expedia also announced a discount of upto 50% on hotels in Rajasthan and great deals in Goa – independent of the contest.
In fact, Expedia recently also announced a new joint venture with AirAsia , world’s best low cost carrier. The partnership is aimed at offering a complete range of great value flights, hotels, and holiday options for the Indian consumer looking at traveling to South East Asian destinations such as Singapore , Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Phuket, Bangkok and Langkawi.
Moreover, Expedia’s distinctive booking experience provides users with thousands of independent reviews from fellow travellers and the opportunity to use travel-simplifying features such as maps, weather forecasts and 360 degree virtual tours of hotels. Its comprehensive inventory features more than 145,000 hotels, and 5, 000 holiday activities and attractions from across the world.
