Hotwire, Inc. is an operating company of Expedia, Inc. – the world’s largest online travel agency. After its launch in 2000, Hotwire became a leading discount travel site by selling its suppliers’ extra inventory with a unique provision: The exact airline, hotel or car rental companies are not named until after the purchase is made. This approach allowed Hotwire to avoid direct competition with its travel suppliers. Hotwire decided to leverage its relationships with more than 10,000 travel companies, to offer public access to insider deals that could not be found on other sites. Hotwire created an innovative new consumer travel website, www.travel-ticker.com for this service. Learn about best practices for agile development when you hear the inside story on how Hotwire and Luxoft developed, designed and executed this complex project.
