Comprehensive Booking Agency
One Travel is a comprehensive booking agency that allows prospective travelers to make arrangements for pending vacations at a fair and reasonable price. One Travel pulls their pricing and logistics from a number of websites to provide a complete itinerary. From there, travelers can choose the specifics of their trip all at a price that suits the budget.
Rather than booking all travel accommodations separately, One Travel has created a platform that allows travelers to manage their trip almost in its entirety through their website. After deciding on some trip specifics, travelers can book flights, car rentals, cruises, and vacation packages in addition to booking hotel rooms.
One Travel prides itself on the fact that they offer a completely secure platform. Unlike other travel sites where customers have experienced false charges, One Travel works to keep their users identities and financial information safe. These efforts include:
- Norton Secured - safe and secure booking on hotel room reservations
- Secure Last Minute Findings - those who need to travel the last minute can book securely
Most of the online booking travel providers only allow travelers to make reservations through their online platform. One Travel also allows travelers the option of calling in and working with their travel experts to book their upcoming trip.

Specializes in Flights
One Travel does specialize in one aspect of travel booking and that is flights. They have created a technology that helps users find some of the cheapest airfares. Since the One Travel is geared towards helping travelers book flights, there is not as much time put into the hotel booking side. One Travel's main partners are airline providers and not hotel chains.
One Travel was a little late to the "travel rewards" game, recently launching their own program. While enrolling in the One Travel membership program is easy, there are some restrictions that apply when it comes to both earning and then redeeming those "points."
One Travel does not offer a dollar for dollar points system, but instead, breaks their rewards program down by the type of accommodation booked using their services. The point system is broken down as follows:
- Flights = Earn 1 point per $1 spent on flights
- Hotels = Earn 3 points per $1 spent on hotel rooms
- Car Rentals = Earn 3 points per $1 spent on car rentals
- Extras = Earn 1 point per $1 spent on vacation extras
These points can then be redeemed on hotel reservations or member's deals only. Points needed for hotel reservations vary based on a number of criteria. The One Travel rewards points cannot be used towards paying for flights. Travelers can double up and earn points with the airline and One Travel if enrolled in both programs.
Since One Travel points can really only be used on hotel room reservations, they have also started to allow their members to use their points towards gift cards instead of using the points on travel accommodations. One Travel users can choose from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, or Wal Mart gift cards if they do not wish to use them on a hotel room.
Unlike most travel sites or hotel booking platforms, One Travel does not include a "deals" page in which travelers can browse limited time offers. These offers typically help travelers who are trying to maintain a tight a budget find the best deals in some of the top destinations in the country.
