Egencia®, the business travel company of Expedia, Inc., today announced that following the launch of online services in the Czech Republic and five new Egencia Global Alliance (EGA) partners added over the last six months, a total of 64 countries are now served by the company.

The company’s expansion responds to customer demand for services in new global markets.

“Egencia has grown and grown consistently over the past several years, outpacing our major competitors and showing double-digit, top-line growth every year,” says Rob Greyber, president of Egencia. “Geographically, we’re expanding right along with our customers as they reach into emerging markets. No matter where they book their travel, travelers get the same expert Egencia customer service, and our clients can count on consistent travel management programs and consolidated reporting across all regions.”

Customer Service with Local Insights and Integrated Technology
On June 30th, 2014, Egencia launched its online services, www.egencia.cz, in the Czech Republic. The new online services reinforce the partnership between Egencia and Czech EGA partner, Business Travel Unlimited, allowing the offline services they provide to be integrated into the Egencia online booking system. Customers in that region can now access the Egencia online booking tool locally and continue to turn to Business Travel Unlimited for travel consultant services.

Middle East North Africa
Three out of the five new EGA partnerships are located in the strategic Middle East North Africa region.

  • Dubai, a major business and transportation hub for the Middle East, made the United Arab Emirates one of the first countries covered by the EGA program when it started in 2009. Egencia has signed a new EGA partnership there withAl Tayer Travel, a privately held Dubai-based company operating in 12 countries throughout the Middle East.
  • In response to increasing customer demand, Egencia now covers Egypt through a partnership with Travco Group International, a Giza-based full service travel agency with 30 independent companies.
  • In Algeria, EGA partner OK Voyage is one of the top five travel companies in the market and serves Egencia customers from its headquarters in Algiers.

Latin America
In January 2014, Egencia added Uruguay to its countries served in Latin America. New EGA partner Montevido-based Viajes y Turismo (VYT) is a leading travel agency with over 32 years of experience in the corporate travel industry.
