Under its “selling and marketing” line item, Expedia Group reported a 6% increase from $5.567 billion in 2018 to $6.03 billion in 2019. The Seattle-based online travel agency spent $5.22 billion under that category in 2017. Booking Holdings maintained virtually the same marketing expenses, going from $4.96 billion in 2018 to $4.97 billion in 2019.
