BELLEVUE, Wash., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Egencia®, the business travel company of Expedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE), today announced that following the launch of online services in the Czech Republic and five new Egencia Global Alliance (EGA) partners added over the last six months, a total of 64 countries are now served by the company.

Customer Service with Local Insights and Integrated Technology
On June 30th, 2014, Egencia launched its online services, www.egencia.cz, in the Czech Republic. The new online services reinforce the partnership between Egencia and Czech EGA partner, Business Travel Unlimited, allowing the offline services they provide to be integrated into the Egencia online booking system.
