Introducing Marriott Flexrez: For the Savvy Traveler

WASHINGTON, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ — Nothing speaks to the traveler on-the- go quite like convenience.

In addition to booking hotel rooms on Marriott.com, online consumers can now make air and car reservations on the same site, even if they’re not booking a hotel room.
