Expedia TAAP launches bilingual Canadian support desk, national sales team

TORONTO — Expedia TAAP (Travel Agent Affiliate Program) is putting in place a bilingual support desk and national sales team in Canada.

Launched in Europe in 2002, Expedia TAAP now partners with more than 80,000 registered travel agents globally offering commissions when selling Expedia’s extensive global inventory.
