One of the veterans of online commerce, Bellevue-based travel giant Expedia, is announcing a partnership with daily deals site Groupon today to offer discounts on travel.

The agreement is being announced today at the D9 conference, and Tricia Duryee of AllThingsD has the early scoop on the news.

The companies say they will be able to market to a combined 50 million people in the U.S. based on their joint subscriber lists. The service is slated to launch later tis summer, starting with hotels and later expanding to airfare and cars. Customers will purchase a voucher that allows them to redeem the purchased item over the following year, according to AllThingsD.

    Many people have been avoiding travel due to the expense, but now maybe they can afford to go on vacation with their families by using these discounts.

    aggregator site that offers consumers a way to save with daily deals and sales
    in their area being e-mailed to them daily. 
    Using daily deals and groupons can be a great way to save on your next
    big purchase, or even for everyday savings.
