Expedia has added Event Tickets to its activities and attractions offering, a new service that brings tickets for more than 95,000 concerts and theatre and sporting events to ensure travelers book their next trip all in one place.
The service appears open to US travelers at the moment, with Expedia citing research from Phocuswright that one in five US travelers purchase tickets to a concert, sporting event or theatre performance while on vacation.
The new service makes it easier for travelers to find everything they need to plan and book their next trip all in one place
“We know travelers are looking for unique and authentic experiences while in-destination,” said Expedia local expert vice president, Jen O’Twomney.
“They want to catch a baseball game at a stadium they’ve never been to, or see a show that isn’t playing in their hometown. There’s also a growing trend to build entire trips around events, to attend a music festival, follow a specific artiste on tour, or root for your team at an away game. Adding event tickets to our product offering makes all the sense in the world and gives us another way to help travelers get the most out of their vacation.”
Travellers can now find tickets to events including concerts, festivals, major and minor league sports, tournaments, theatre & shows and comedies.
They can search by event type, destination, venue, team or specific performer, or just browse events nearby and popular events nationwide.
