Expedia, Inc. has implemented its expanded partnership with MSN, Microsoft Corp.'s network of Internet services. Now, customers who visit MSN Travel will find Expedia.com content as well as information from Expedia, Inc.'s other sites including hotels.com, Hotwire.com and TripAdvisor.com, giving them more travel booking options and content on the MSN Travel channel.

Expedia.com has powered the travel channel on MSN.com and many localized MSN sites around the world since 1999. This relationship brings value and convenience to MSN customers and represents a step forward in Expedia's commitment to bringing the breadth of its supplier relationships to all travel customers. It is a testament to Expedia's dedication to giving customers unparalleled service, choice and trusted advice.

"We are excited about the newest results of our relationship with MSN," said Steven McArthur, president of North American Leisure Travel Group, Expedia, Inc. "It represents a giant step forward in our efforts to form strong, lasting relationships with valued suppliers and bring together exceptional services to benefit everyone: Expedia, our partners and most importantly, our customers."

"Recent studies have shown that U.S. travelers visit multiple web sites when planning a vacation," added McArthur. "With the addition of Expedia, TripAdvisor, hotels.com and Hotwire to the MSN Travel channel, both companies are able to provide customers with what they want, when, where and how they want it."

The new MSN Travel channel showcases the power of the brands in the Expedia, Inc. portfolio, each brand offering MSN visitors unique attributes such as specialized content, traveler opinions or discounted opaque inventory. Expedia's partnerships such as this drive significant volume of bookings for Expedia's supply partners and bring together exceptional services Expedia has to offer in one convenient location.
