Expedia completes acquisition of majority stake in SilverRail
Expedia and SilverRail Technologies announced that Expedia has completed its acquisition of a majority stake in SilverRail. The acquisition builds on the partnership the two companies have had since 2010 when Egencia, Expedia's corporate travel brand, began using SilverRail's expertise to offer rail inventory in the U.S. The partnership expanded in 2016 when Expedia.com announced it would use SilverRail's technology platform to sell rail tickets through the Expedia.co.uk website. The acquisition broadens Expedia's breadth of choice of travel products across air, hotel, car rental, cruise, packages and rail through SilverRail's technology, bringing rail supply online to a global audience.
