Online travel company Expedia has signed a strategic technology partnership with SilverRail, in a bid to expand its presence in the rail market.
Expedia plans to use SilverRail’s global rail ticketing technologies to allow customers to book tickets and see fares offered by multiple companies. Greg Schulze, senior vice president of Global Tour and Transport said: “The growth of rail, and the significant business opportunity it presents, is a trend we can no longer neglect. We look forward to begin selling rail tickets and learning more about the nuances of this unique product.”
