TripAdvisor’s instant booking platform expands to nine new markets

TripAdvisor has expanded its hotel booking service to nine more countries.

Customers in Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore and South Africa can now make bookings on the popular travel site after it was introduced in the US and UK markets last year.

A “global roll-out” of the service is expected in the first half of 2016.

The site features more than 70 hotel chains, groups and online travel agencies.

President and chief executive of TripAdvisor, Stephen Kaufer, said: “We’re excited to help even more travellers around the world conveniently plan and book the perfect trip on our site as we rollout instant booking to more global markets.

“The momentum we’re building is remarkable and we look forward to continuing our expansion throughout 2016 with the help of our trusted partners.”

The expansion follows TripAdvisor’s partnership with Priceline Group, announced in October 2015, and integration of its Booking.com inventory.
