Expedia is the company responsible for the services of Travelocity, Trivago, and many others that are used on a regular basis. These services that this company offers are the services of time management. Being able to find what you need all in one place allows people to focus on other aspects of their life. By organizing everything into one platform, it allows the user to stay at that one site, which increases the chances of a sale. This type of company does well when people are spending, but issues arise when there is a slight downturn in the overall market.

Although these negative factors are pressing on the industry, there are people that are addicted to smoking and this company is primed to take advantage of these addictions. Sure it is not the most ethical industries since it is damaging people’s health, but this is a business and they are there to make money.
