Chinese online travel companies Ctrip.com International Ltd and Qunar Cayman Islands Ltd are set to announce a merger, according to a person familiar with the matter, a deal that could be made public as early as Monday night.

The rivals’ merger would create easily China’s biggest online travel firm. Ctrip.com has a market valuation of $10.6 billion, while the smaller Qunar, backed by Chinese search giant Baidu Inc, is valued at $5.2 billion.
