The cooperation will allow Huawei users access to high-speed internet, as well as hotel booking and car rental services, online news outlet TechWeb reported. Users will also be able to receive customized travel recommendations, discounts, and one-stop travel services from DTCM through the app, Huawei Browser and Huawei Smart Assistant.
