Will Expedia's Purchase Of Orbitz Mean You'll Pay More For Flights And Hotels?
International Business Times reports on "online travel agency Expedia spending $1.3 billion to buy rival Orbitz" and what the consolidation means for consumers, offering commentary from David Tossell, VP of Travel & Hospitality at DataArt.
"David Tossell, a former Travelocity manager who now is now an executive at travel software company DataArt, told Elliott that consumers should "lean on the 'meta' search sites that find fares from a variety of sources." Sites like Kayak.com, Trivago, Google Flights and Google Hotels all save you from visiting multiple travel sites and combing through them one by one."
