Expedia.com and Hotels.com said Thursday that they've extended their partnership with Hyatt Corp.
The travel sites, owned by IAC/InterActive Corp., signed an agreement ensuring that Hyatt will continue to make its properties available on their sites.
The extended agreement follows the launch three months ago of a direct Internet connection between Expedia and Hyatt's central reservation system that automates reservation confirmations and ensures pricing and inventory consistency. Hyatt has been partners with Expedia since 2001.
