Company overview

Hotwire is a leading discount travel site with low rates on airline tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars and vacation packages.

Since the year 2000 we  have been negotiating deep discounts from its travel partners to help travelers book unsold airline seats, hotel rooms and rental cars at significant savings.  We are an operating company of Expedia, Inc. (NASDAQ : EXPE).

The Hotwire Mission

Our mission is to offer unbeatable low prices on airline tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals and vacation packages. Through our partnerships with leading travel companies, we get customers ridiculously low prices.

How does Hotwire work?

Our partners give us access to their unsold inventory — empty seats on flights, empty hotel rooms, and extra cars on the lot — at big savings. By showing the name of our travel partner after customers book, we can get travel deals that are significantly below published prices.

Market Metrix

In February, 2009, Market Metrix Hospitality Index (MMHI) awarded Hotwire the top ranking among hotel travel Web sites for the seventh time in the last two years. The MMHI, which gathers feedback from 35,000 U.S.-based customers, is the largest and most in-depth measurement of hotel, airline and car rental performance available today.
