Author: Expedia Group, Published on: 16 December 2018

Expedia Group is an online travel company, empowering leisure and business travelers around the world with the tools and information they need to research, plan, book and experience travel. Expedia Group operates more than 200 travel websites across 75 countries. Travel suppliers distribute and market their products and services via our desktop and mobile offerings, Expedia Group does not operate hotels, vacation rentals or travel products itself. We allow any accommodation provider to sign up to our platform in accordance with laws applicable to Expedia Group. Expedia Group is committed to providing transparency to our customers when travelling to disputed territories globally and we appreciate Amnesty International bringing its concerns on this complex issue to our attention. In the Occupied Palestinian Territories, we identify these accommodations as "Israeli Settlement" located in Palestinian Territory. We are currently reviewing the transparency of our display not only in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, but as well as other disputed territories globally to ensure that travelers have the information necessary to make the travel decisions that best suit their needs. The issues raised in your letter are an important input as we continue to assess the type of information we provide to our travelers.
