A Little Help For Agents From Expedia TAAP

Expedia Group has rolled out new discounts and promotions to help members of its Travel Agent Affiliate Program (TAAP) find great spring and summer destinations in popular locations such as Miami, Cancun, Las Vegas, New York, Rome, Barcelona and Paris for their clients.

With global travel expected to experience record highs this year, Expedia TAAP is introducing its Spring Sale with up to 30% discounts on thousands of hotels worldwide.

In all regions, the offers are valid on bookings made between March 17 and March 31, 2022, with travel by Sept. 6, 2022.

Phoebe Bush, director, Expedia TAAP Americas, Expedia Group, observed that: “Travel is about to experience a year unlike ever before as people plan purpose-driven trips and increase their investment in unique experiences. Our agents are likely to face an influx of requests and enthusiasm from travellers as the entire industry shifts to demand and growth.”

Recent research from Expedia Group’s Travel Value Index 2022 Outlook revealed that 81% of travellers plan to take at least one vacation with family and friends in the next six months.

Approximately half of millennials (49%) and nearly the same percentage of Gen Z (47%) say they’re likely to travel internationally or already have an international trip booked in 2022.

Expedia Group is creating a wide range of incentives and services for Expedia TAAP agents including access to a virtual agent; self-service functionality that allows agents to manage bookings more efficiently and the new TAAP Academy learning portal.

Just last month, Expedia Group rolled out a new highly requested quotation tool to help TAAP agents personalize quotes per traveller. Much more is in the works in 2022 to support TAAP agents’ success.
