  • Expedia buys booking site Travelocity for $280M in cash Jan 23, 2015 10:14 AM
    Expedia has acquired travel booking site Travelocity from the Sabre Corp. for $280 million in cash. The deal adds to Expedia’s growing portfolio of websites. The Bellevue, Washington-company already owns nearly a dozen travel sites including Hotels.com, Hotwire and Egencia, the world’s fifth-largest corporate travel management company. Since 2013, Expedia Inc. has been powering Travelocity’s U.S. and Canadian websites and providing Travelocity access to Expedia hotel supply and customer service program. So for users, this acquisition will have little noticeable change. The move allows Sabre to focus more on its back-end system for selling airline tickets, hotel rooms and car rentals. Sabre is one of three global distribution system companies — along with Travelport and Amadeus — that handle sales for travel agencies and online booking sites like Expedia. “Travelocity is one of the most recognized travel brands in North America, offering thousands of travel destinations to more than 20 million travelers per month,” Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Expedia, Inc. said in a statement. Expedia’s shares rose $1.53 to $87.24 in morning trading Friday. Competitor Orbitz Worldwide Inc. saw its stock price spike earlier this week on reports it is considering selling itself. Its shares rose 9 cents to $10.07 Friday morning.

  • Pacific Crest Trail expects more hikers thanks to ‘Wild’ Jan 23, 2015 6:01 AM
    More hikers are expected on the Pacific Crest Trail this year thanks to the movie “Wild,” according to the Pacific Crest Trail Association, which preserves and promotes the trail. The book “Wild,” which has been a best-seller for nearly two years, led to a small increase in inquiries about the trail, “but the movie seems to have had a much bigger effect,” said Jack Haskel, trail information specialist for the Pacific Crest Trail Association. The PCT starts near Campo, California, outside San Diego at the Mexican border, and stretches 2,650 miles through California, Oregon and Washington.
