AS politicians and businesses wrestle with potential changes to UK border controls, one of the world's largest online travel booking companies has decided to double its headcount in London, and it's not alone.

Expedia Inc will expand its UK office by 138,000 square feet, or to roughly twice the size of its existing space, and has signed a new lease that runs until 2030, according to a company statement. Expedia currently has about 1,400 staff at its London hub.
