New Delhi, 17th February 2014- Expedia Travel Agent Affiliate Program (TAAP) has reaffirmed its commitment to provide the best booking platform with the rollout of the new TAAP portal in India. The new platform has been highly praised by Travel Agents now using the TAAP portal on a daily basis.

“The objective of the new platform is to simplify and streamline travel agent processes with features like single sign on and faster data access. We expect these modifications to help our agents to boost their business in a much easier and faster way” says Vikram Malhi, GM, South and Southeast Asia, Expedia.

The booking process using the Expedia website hasn’t changed but the log-in and back end processes have been streamlined significantly. Now the Login, in new TAAP website, is a single step process and the enhanced itinerary builder feature allows generation of unbranded vouchers for agents to self-brand, print or forward to their customers. The enhanced itinerary builder also allows the agent to edit/delete the information the agent wants to send to the client and has the functionality to mark up price using “Add fees”. The new TAAP website tracks all the bookings seamlessly after the agent login and gives complete control to the agent to edit/delete the profile information and change password.

The TAAP team has already rolled out new portals worldwide over the last few months and went live in India today. For more information about Expedia TAAP go to http://www.expedia.co.in/TAAP-LearnMore. The launch in India is followed by the launch in Italy and US.
