"Expedia is one of the largest travel companies in the world; it only made sense to work with them to provide corporate travelers access to the form of payment that many of their companies require when booking airfare," said Ralph Kaiser, President and CEO, UATP. "Through this collaboration, corporate travelers using Expedia, Travelocity or Orbitz can choose flexible routes to meet their needs for booking flights on any airline."With Expedia as a Merchant, UATP's Subscribers that don't have access to a travel management company such as Egencia now have the opportunity to personally book their own airfare with company-approved payment methods.
