Expedia signs deal with Silverrail to expand in rail sector

Silverrail Technologies has announced a partnership with Expedia to power the booking giant’s expansion in the rail sector.

Development of a platform has already begun with a launch expected in 2016.

Silverrail’s ticketing platform helps simplify the process of accessing multiple rail companies through a standard interface.

Silverrail said this will enable Expedia to deliver a “consistent search and booking experience to which its customers have become accustomed”.

Expedia’s senior VP of global tour and transport, Greg Schulze, said: “The growth of rail, and the significant business opportunity it presents, is a trend we can no longer neglect; we look forward to begin selling rail tickets and learning more about the nuances of this unique product.”

Aaron Gowell, chief executive of Silverrail, said: “This is undoubtedly one of the most significant partnerships we have signed. We are thrilled to be working with Expedia to bring rail into the world’s largest travel e-commerce platform.”
