Launch of Upside.com provides new way to buy business travel

Upside.com is an online travel company that allows travelers at small and medium-sized businesses to save 10-15% over the lowest published air and hotel prices available, the company said.

As a reward for making money-saving travel choices, travelers earn USD 100-200 or more in a free gift card on top of the savings for their company. All this is possible because the traveler chooses their flights and hotel on Upside.com, and then buys them together as a bundle for one low price.

Upside provides full domestic and international coverage. Built on USD 50 million of research and development, Upside offers travelers and their companies a combination of benefits.

Upside.com is led by Priceline founder Jay Walker and a team of former senior Priceline executives. Teh company is headquartered in Washington, D.C., with facilities in Stamford, CT, and New York, NY.
