Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Gross Bookings and Net Revenue

Gross bookings increased 9 percent year-over-year to $3.4 billion in the second quarter 2014. This increase was driven by higher hotel, car, vacation package and air volume and higher average booking values per air, vacation package, hotel and car transaction.

This increase was driven by higher hotel, vacation package, car and air transaction volume and higher net revenue per air, vacation package and car transaction partially offset by lower net revenue per hotel transaction.
