A nightmare to fly on www.expedia.com.hk - Air Travel Forum
I' ve made a Flyr deals to go from Hong Kong(HKG) to Chennai(MAA) for $277.00 for flights and 1 overnight stay. 13.00 US$ for one through Paypal pay. Note on my Paypal invoice that I was billed US$26.00. Then I phoned Paypal to arrange it (Settlement in Process) I tried to complete the journey for myself and phoned Expedia directly.
Surprisingly, I was informed by the Expedia individual that he (Expedia) neither has a reservation for me nor that he has blocked the tariffs indicated on his website. Paypal. I' ve tried to make a desperate reservation to make myjourney. Please note that I have finished the reservation with my payment information. After a few moments I got a message from Expedia.HK saying "unable to finalise your booking".
Her site took me to the Ctrip site in China. Can' t tell you how to speak Mandarin. If you are an English-speaking member, why do you link to these pages from abroad? It is not possible to modify the view or into English. Traveller Advisor does not have an appropriate local support team to solve such issues.
I had a bad dream to get to this point to get to writing, and I don't know if I'll have the same price I paid through the travel agent with Flyr.
New accounting features from Expedia increase mobility dynamics
With a number of new applications, such as car hire, a" Buch Now, Watch Later" feature and a newly crafted splash screen, Expedia enhances its mobility. Upgrades were developed in reaction to current Expedia research on portable travelling behaviour, which is burning up among users who favour last-minute offers on smart phones and tables.
The application allows travellers to take advantage of a greater diversity of bookings and view Expedia as a one-stop-shop for all their travelling needs, whether it' s airfare, accommodation or socialising. "Today's travellers are expecting increasing levels of mobility on-demand accessibility to more flexible service that allows them to make last-minute choices or quickly adjust as schedules evolve during a trip," said Tarran Street, a technology officer for Expedia, Inc.
"We' ve seen the latest trend in last-minute booking and we' ve learned from clients that booking hire vehicles and domestic events is another of their priorities, so we've integrated a number of Expedia features that our clients know and like on the desk into our Expedia application to offer a more comprehensive, one-stop shop mobility travelling experience that allows them to find and reserve everything from properties, airlines and now also hire vehicles and domestic operations on the go," she said.
Expanded BookingsOne of Expedia's differentiating features is the "book now, book later" option, which is designed to give customers more choices when buying a room. People can book a room in the hotels and must make the payments at check-in. Expedia could be added to their list of go-to bookings applications for customers who tend to travel last-minute or do not have the opportunity to deal with paying methods before they leave.
It also found that its customers were calling for in-app rentals, which prompted Expedia to add them to the upgrade. At the moment, the locally available activity tools and vehicle hire reservations are only available to US residents, but plan to be available to UK and Canada cellular customers in the next few month.
Expedia is now offering a holiday packages saving feature that gives travellers up to 55% off when they book a ticket for a competing trip and purchase a qualified overnight accommodation within the next 10 day. The marketing company has introduced new travelling ranges for tables. US residents will discover the "Fun for all ages" line, while global shoppers will be able to rummage through the "Global National Parks" line.
"Travellers sometimes need a little bit of imagination when planning a journey, and we know that clients are inclined to waste more travelers' hours daydreaming and searching travel locations on mobile phones, so we update the Expedia iPad and Android Tray application on a regular basis with new contents and ranges that include a range of handpicked travel locations that reflect the latest fashions and seasons," said Ms Street.
FindingsExpedia's latest study confirms the importance of the phone in the bookings area and consolidates it as one of the brand's most important - and profitable - ways. In 2014, more than one in five hotels and air travelers searched from mobiles, while the "Trips" page in the application records an annual traffic of around 250,000 hits.
It is Expedia's belief that this shows the confidence of travellers in the tailor-made route to manage their journeyadventure. In the past year, more than 1.6 million Expedia customers who book schedules via desktop used the brand-named application to browse routes, more than 50 per cent more than in the year before.
Meanwhile, customers appreciate the app's real-time trip notifications: since 2013, around five million gates and 12 million air check-in memories have been sent. Expedia's comprehensive range of products on offer on the go is made possible by the ease with which urgent travellers can be reached on their cell phones. A few months ago, Expedia expanded its coverage by launching a Web site in English for mobiles and desktops with the same functionality as its point-of-sale English site, demonstrating the need for third parties to make sure that their service reaches every interested user and overcomes language barrier (see History).
The newly designed start page with large pictures and colourful tiling also shows that the homepage of every application must be eye-catching and user-friendly. "The new Expedia Start Panel is an important development to enhance the portable travelling experiences for our million of clients around the world," said Ms. Street.
"While the new look still offers daring, pretty pictures and colourful tile, we wanted to make it more vibrant and adaptable to provide extra value for travellers in the new year.
