Increased air and hotel bookings helped Expedia achieve better than expected quarterly profits.
The online travel agency giant saw third-quarter net profit rise to $176.6 million compared with $117 million a year earlier.
The total value of bookings rose 17% in the quarter to $6.89 billion. US bookings rose by 16% and international bookings gained 17%.
Gross bookings were driven by a 14% rise in transactions, a 9% rise in average air fares and a 4% rise in hotel average daily rates, the company said.
