CHICAGO, Oct. 15, 2013 - Leading online travel company Orbitz Worldwide (NYSE:
OWW) has partnered with the Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau and The Mexico
Tourism Board to launch "Orbitz Originals: The Different Cancun," a nine-part
online video series that is hosted by award-winning travel expert Richard
Bangs and is available for viewing at Orbitz.com/Cancun. Supported by
discounts of up to 55 percent off hotel rooms, this sixth installment of the
"Orbitz Originals" series once again harnesses the power of online video to
inspire travelers and drive travel bookings to Cancun, Mexico's most dynamic
city.

Cancun, located on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, on the
southeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, boasts 150 hotels and 380
restaurants to accommodate more than four million visitors annually^1. Each
episode of "Orbitz Originals: The Different Cancun" inspires travelers to
explore the novel attractions and activities Cancun has to offer all
year-round. Highlights of the series include:

  *"Swimming with Whale Sharks" brings the viewer up close and personal with
    the world's largest fish, a shy behemoth that can be spotted at several
    choice locations off the coast of Cancun

  *"The Secrets of Cenotes" showcases a tour of beautiful caves with
    freshwater pools - known as "cenotes" - that provided the natural water
    supply for several ancient Mayan settlements

  *"Cancun's Best Food" presents Richard Bangs' Gold List of restaurants,
    including Lumière at LeBlanc Spa Resort, Navios on the Nichupte Lagoon,
    and Julia Mia in downtown Cancun.

  *"Escape to Isla Mujeres" takes viewers on a short ferry ride from Cancun
    to Isla Mujeres, a small island in the Caribbean that serves as the
    perfect romantic getaway

  *"Golf vs. Spa: Battle of the Vacationers" proves that Cancun offers more
    than just sandy beaches and crystal clear water. The Moon Palace Golf &
    Spa Resort is home to a par 72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and a
    world-class spa to relax the mind, body and spirit.

"Cancun is a beautiful destination that contributes a significant percentage
of Mexico's tourism-related revenue. Home to one-of-a-kind museums like the
Cancun Underwater Museum and the Cancun Maya Museum, unique activities like
Exotic Rides and delicious cuisine that mixes Mexican, Spanish and native
cultures, the destination continues to attract a variety of travelers to its
shores," said Jesus Almaguer, CEO of the Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau.
"'Orbitz Originals: The Different Cancun' is a wonderful showcase of the
activities and attractions that may be unknown to many travelers, with
visually striking footage and expert travel recommendations from Richard
Bangs, one of the world's foremost travel experts."

To date, "Orbitz Originals" videos highlighting the Cayman Islands, Qatar,
Vermont, Ireland and New York have been viewed by tens of thousands of
travelers seeking inspiration for future trips, and bookings to those
destinations experienced double-digit growth over the life of each campaign. 

"Our mission with the 'Orbitz Originals' series is to inspire travelers and
drive bookings to a diverse set of global destinations," said Josh Winkler,
Orbitz Worldwide vice president of partner marketing. "Cancun has always been
a popular destination for Orbitz travelers, but we felt the full scope of
Cancun's assets was not necessarily top-of-mind for our customers. 'Orbitz
Originals: The Different Cancun' will immediately change that as viewers take
advantage of significant hotel discounts and see everything Cancun has for
travelers wanting more than just another beach vacation."
