UOB launches online travel marketplace

UNITED Overseas Bank (UOB) has launched an online travel platform that makes it easier for its customers to search, plan and book their holidays.

Working with online travel giants Agoda and Expedia, UOB said that it is the first bank in South-east Asia to have an online travel marketplace.

UOB uses Agoda’s and Expedia’s application programming interfaces (API) to draw the best options from more than a million hotel and flight possibilities, the bank said on Monday.

“This is the first time a Singapore bank has used the APIs of both online travel giants to build an integrated marketplace,” it said.
