Expedia Settles With U.S. Government Over Cuba Travel Allegations

A building housing Expedia in Bellevue, Wash. Expedia has agreed to pay more than $325,000 to settle U.S. government allegations that it improperly helped people travel inside Cuba or between the island and places other than the United States. The Treasury Department announced the agreement and settlements with several other companies on Thursday, June 13, 2019. Elaine Thompson / Associated Press

Skift Take: Although Expedia cooperated, it looks like the U.S. government is determined to crack down on Cuba travel violations. Given the recent changes — and the current administration’s rhetoric — we should probably expect closer scrutiny in the future.
