  • Rewards Program
  • Travel Insurance

Technology

Expedia is one of the leading travel sites on the web and has helped thousands of travelers with their booking needs. Over time, the company has made innovations in the online booking space and its technology ultimately allows it to pull data and pricing information from thousands of traveling and airfare sites. These results are then presented to the traveler to compare, contrast, and book.

Travel Accommodations

Expedia seeks to ease the regular pains that come with travel planning by allowing customers to book all of their accommodations in one place. With Expedia, consumers can book flights, hotels, rental cars, cruises, and vacation packages either online or over the phone.

Customer Review: Karen from Tallahassee, Florida

"Expedia is awesome! I have found all the best traveling deals on Expedia. It makes planning for a trip so much easier since I can find flights, hotels, and more all in one."

Features

Aside from allowing travelers to book standard accommodations on its site, Expedia has also found a way to help travelers make booking a trip as straightforward as possible. Features that travelers may find useful during their research and planning time include the following:

  • Triple points for using the Expedia mobile app to book travel accommodations
  • An easy-to-use website that features deals on airfare, car rental, cruises, and more
  • Packaged vacation deals that include options for the particular time of year
  • A user-friendly destination search tool that allows customers to select the components of their travel plans

Rewards Program

Another benefit of using the Expedia platform is access to its rewards program, which includes a number of membership benefits and no annual fee. The rewards program is broken down as follows:

  • Three-tier rewards program (Gold, Silver, and Blue)
  • Earn a point for every dollar spent on flights, hotels, and activities
  • Earn 2 to 4 rewards points for every dollar spent on hotel and flight vacation packages, depending on the size of the package

Guests can qualify for tiers in the Expedia Rewards platform by booking a qualifying hotel room, rental car, airline ticket, or vacation package. Members can obtain Expedia gold status by booking 15 nights at hotels or other qualifying Expedia purchases. Guests can also sign up for the Expedia Rewards card or the Expedia Rewards Voyager card from Citi and enjoy gold status for the duration that they have the credit card.

Travel Insurance

While there are some exceptions, Expedia does provide travel protection. Travel protection plans depend on what is booked, but they are backed by the Transamerica Casualty Insurance Company. Ultimately, an Expedia travel insurance policy will cover up to the total cost of the vacation for trip cancellations and interruptions.

The Bad

  • Website Ads
  • Complaints

Website Ads

Expedia's site contains several ads, which contribute to a text-heavy page and make it difficult to find information about deals and travel options.

Complaints

Expedia has received a number of complaints from consumers, most of which circle around the company's customer service. Many individuals have cited miscommunications and bad experiences when dealing with Expedia's customer service representatives.

gavel

The Bottom Line

Expedia offers up-to-date technology, several travel accommodations, a number of site features, a rewards program, and travel protection. However, the company has received many complaints about its customer service and its website contains several ads.

For a frequent traveler, it might be a good idea to take advantage of the Expedia Rewards card and the Expedia Rewards Program. For the less frequent traveler, the sheer amount of accommodations available on Expedia is definitely worth looking into.

There's a reason Expedia has been around so long. Their deals are hard to beat. They have everything for trip booking from lodging to car rentals, to flights, all in one place.

Expedia is great because and can see hotels and vacation rentals. I love knowing all of my options before I make a choice. I do wish they would list indoor pool and outdoor pool, not just pool as an amenity choice. Reading the reviews of other customers has been very helpful to know if I should book a certain place or not.

Expedia lies. I booked a car reservation from Expedia and realized that I wanted to extend the rental by 1 day. I called Expedia and they said to cancel the original reservations and make another reservation. However I said no because Expedia will charge me $50 cancellation fee. The service rep said no, they will not penalize me for cancelling. Big lie. They did charge me the $50 cancellation fee and even though I had the chat transcript to prove what the service rep said, they refused to forgive the $50 fee. My credit-card company (Chase) was no help either. Expedia lies. They are unscrupulous. Stay away!!

Booked a hotel for an week family vacation months in advance. We paid Expedia. However, upon arriving at the hotel discovered that Expedia never paid the hotel. The payment was terminated by Expedia without notifying us. The hotel still showed our reservation but no payment. It took multiple calls by both travelers and the hotel. We were on hold for over an hour. Expedia customer service hung up on us and the Hotel staff. It took hours to resolve and late at night while traveling with kids. We'll never recommend nor use Expedia again. We're also identifying their parter companies to avoid these also. 0 stars for Expedia customer service.

When traveling outside the country for my first vacation abroad, Expedia made the process of booking a safe, budget friendly, and even luxurious hotel a possibility for us. We received the best deal possible, were able to reserve the perfect room, all in under an hour and a half on Expedia. When we arrived to our hotel, everything was as we had been told and seen on Expedia. If you were looking for a trustworthy company to help you plan your dream vacation, this is it.

I have worked with Expedia for years and recently I've lost sleep over the terrible customer service. My first flight originally got cancelled and I received airline credit from Expedia. Then I used that credit to book later and the price was surcharged for only my airline and I then had to pay an extra mid 200's out of my pocket additional. Peaking at Google flights, my airline had a lower price. So this is Expedia knowing I had to book with my airline with my credit and they raised the price of only my airline to make more money. Now my flight was unavailable and I received an email to either rebook or receive credit. Knowing that I will be surcharged again, I called to make sure the price without factoring the credit would be honored. Apparently no matter what even though the flights were lower prices, the remaining balance of my credit will be forfeited aka they pocket the rest. I have asked to speak with a supervisor multiple times. Then I was being put on hold to "check on policies". Some of the agents that put us on hold have hung up and i have also been lied to about a supervisor's office hours by over 3 agents. Then I asked to receive an email for confirmation and one person was able to send me an email while a few other agents claimed they don't have email. Also one agent said they were going to transfer me to a supervisor and 20 minutes later, another agent their level picked up. So they lied again. I received a call over 30 hours later and the supervisor said the same thing as the agent and that according to the airline, the remaining credit balance will be forfeited. Also there was no way to identify them or identify which call center this is from. From big corporations, they will provide you with an employee number for reference if you had to speak to a higher power and also the supervisor claimed that there is no one above them to speak to which is definitely a lie as well. To verify if this is true, I went above and called the airline directly and they said this is not their policy and whatever remaining balance would remain in my account to use for future trips. My airline ended up rebooking my flight free of charge and also honored the lower price and now I have over $300 of credit in my account which was the extra money I was surcharged by Expedia. These people will do everything in their power to lie to you and keep your money. Do not book with Expedia.

I booked a tour in Paris with your company, I waited at the hotel and the driver never showed up. I tried contacting the number on the reservation and was not a functioning number. I contacted Expedia customer service multiple times, they attempted to contact the vendor without luck. I never got the tour. I finally tracked the parent company, Viator, and provided their contact to Expedia to attempt to obtain a refund. Expedia declined my request for a refund because they stated that the vendor is not reimbursing them. This is fraudulent activity. I booked with Expedia and it is Expedia’s responsibility to reimburse me.

Expedia takes the stress out of travel booking. I was able to cancel a reservation the day before in a matter of minutes with no additional charges. Their automated customer service is super ahead of the game and actually beneficial, as opposed to most automated systems. They always show me the cheapest deals when compared to other travel sites too!

Buyer Beware! Watch when booking a hotel through Expedia because if you have to cancel an unavoidable hotel reservation, there's a big chance you will not get a refund. EASY MONEY for Expedia. Most hotel chains honor a cancellation 24-48 hours before, which was our case and they do not. Customer support was useless and understandable as my money was in their pocket and staying there. Terrible company!

I had a very bad experience with Expedia, I booked 2 round trip tickets, a hotel and car rental and trip insurance with 100% money back guarantee November2021. Due to my father dying I had to cancel everything. Their virtual assistant ended up canceling my insurance before the flights so guess what? NO REFUND on my tickets, just credit. I have only flew 4 times since 2011, I will never use those credits in time.

Room on Expedia website not as advertised. Within 24 hours I contacted Expedia to cancel remainder of reservation with partial refund. Expedia advised me to check out they would contact hotel. I checked out and then both Expedia and the hotel played hot potato with who had the authority to make this right. Expedia blamed hotel and hotel blamed Expedia while both said they really wished they could honor my request. Beware that once you check in to hotel through Expedia your window to cancel has closed and Expedia will only pay lip service. Do not expect being able to cancel or receive even a partial refund. I will never book with Expedia again. Hopefully, in sharing this experience, others won’t be duped by Expedia.

I booked flights and hotel with Expedia to have nice stay in Exuma Bahamas for me and my husband on November 9 till 14.We were so excited to spend 5 days in there.We are US citizens live in Florida,fully vaccinated .I started booking round trip flights tickets and hotel and had no warning ⚠️ and any additional information and Expedia didn’t stop me at any point purchasing my dream vacation. Flights were provided by Silver Airlines,very small local airline. Departure was from FLL International Airport.We make it on time and we were ready to be welcomed on board but when we showed them our vaccination card and Negative Covid test(just did the day before) and passports of course they ask for Health Visa,what nobody told me during this booking at Expedia at all.This is Bahamas requirement since October 2021 to get in to. Finally we were not allowed to get into the flight and left behind and sadly back home.Spending hours by hours to contact Expedia customer service with no luck of refund. I don’t understand why they let me spend $1,600.00 without notifying me that Bahamas has that kind of rules.When we were complained with the airlines officer about , she said you should be informed by the TRAVEL AGENCY in this case EXPEDIA!!! I used Expedia for so many years but now I’m done ✅. Stay away from them!!!

Do not use this website! I booked a flight with Expedia and purchased cancellation/change insurance (despite Expedia's promised free change within 24 hours of booking). I had a booking for a round trip from EWR->EYW with short layovers in-between. I then needed to change the date of my flights to the next day. I spent over 3 hours with a service agent on the phone. After losing 2 of the preferred flights I had looked up due to his "connection" speed the agent assured me he changed my booking to reflect EWR->MIA ->EYW and EYW -> CLT -> EWR. Adding the disclaimer it takes 24 hours for Expedia's itinerary to update to reflect the changes. 24 hours later checking my itinerary I was shocked the support agent failed to book the flight after the layover. Leaving me with a reservation for EWR > MIA one day and a return EYW > CLT. With no way to get to my destination *EYW or return back to *EWR. I attempted to call Expedia customer support but was unable to speak with a representative. I became stuck in a loop of an automated answering machine informing me they couldn't find my booking and disconnecting. Finally, I was able to get in touch with a virtual agent via the chat feature. They found me another flight with a 3-hour layover and asked me to put up over $1,000 dollars for the change fees (promised to be refunded in 6-10 business days). Unapologetically, Expedia took an additional 1.5 hours of my time, gave me a worse flight, and offered nothing to rectify the situation.

0 Stars. What a garbage company. Worst customer service and service in general we have ever experienced. We would never give another penny to these crooks. We had to cancel a flight due to covid and now they are holding our money hostage and giving us an expiry date for OUR MONEY that means we can’t use it. Not only that they have lied to us numerous times and then wasted hours of our time on phone calls. Absolutely horrible and we will never use them again. They also love to hang up on you after you spend hours waiting on hold.

We called their service line to make a flight change. After hours on hold, and being forwarded to many different places, their agent booked the flight. We found the next morning, when we were doing the checkin - THEY BOOKED THE WRONG TIME! We spent hours on the phone trying to fix it, when eventually the agent told us to just book the flight ourselves directly from the airline. THEY KEPT OUR MONEY!! NEVER EVER USE THIS COMPANY

DO NOT BOOK WITH EXPEDIA DO NOT BOOK WITH EXPEDIA! So frustrating! My flight was cancelled due to covid. The process to get a refund is a nightmare! First, there is no credit listed on either my Expedia or WestJet accounts (yet they claim it is there). Then they claim I can book a flight and use the money as long as I book it by a certain date. Why don't I get to pick when I use MY money up by??? The service/flight I was requesting, was not an option for me. I should have received a full refund the minute the flight was cancelled. Such a process! Also, other couples booked the same flight through Expedia AFTER I did, however, they miraculously have received a refund - yet I am still being told my option is to apply for an extension or refund. What a hassle!

Just got back from a long road trip. To book some of my hotels I used Expedia. Due to changes in my schedule I had to change some of my resorvations. Expedia was impossible to work with and I had to pick up 3 nights I didn’t even use. It took over 1 hr on Chat to change one booking. As I was waiting my phone rang and it was this forgin voice from Expedia asking me what I wanted. They asked me for my phone number?? I said you called me and they wanted my credit card the booking was made through. It was all very bizarre. After about 1 1/2 hr my reservation was changed but I was told it could not be canceled and I would have to pay anyway. I had 3 bookings that I ended up paying for that I didn’t use. For now on I pay more and book myself. No more Expedia

I booked a "transferable" trip USA to UK and paid $2,650. I had to cancel and rearrange the dates, and when I did the fare was $611 less. I was told the difference was only useable on the new booking due to the airline policy (Virgin Atlantic), so I asked to upgrade seats. I was told I would have to contact the airline directly. I did so and learned from Virgin that they had only been paid $2037 and the rest of my money remained with Expedia, and they told me "this happens frequently, and I would have to call Expedia to try and get a seat upgrade”. Expedia played dumb, and when I asked to speak to a supervisor, they held me on the phone for 44 minutes before dropping the line. Lies about "Airline Policy", and deliberate actions to pocket my remaining money. Never again Expedia!

So, my wife and I book our rental car through Expedia on our last trip to Brazil. We arrived to the rental car agency approximately 1 hour after our scheduled arrival. We were subsequently refused the vehicle by the rental agency and told our reservation was cancelled. We were told that we could reschedule through Expedia. So, we called Expedia while standing in the agency lobby. We were told they couldn't reschedule or cancel the reservation. We asked for a refund because we were not receiving the service we paid for. A few days later we received an email that they couldn't reach the agency, which we never had any problem doing, and therefore were refusing to issue a refund. I spoke with a representative at Expedia that agreed that we had not violated their policy, but was still refusing to issue a refund. So even though we did everything the way we were suppose to, Expedia still refused to stand by their own policy and issue a refund. Safe to say I will neither use Expedia again, not will I ever recommend it to anyone other than the people I hate.

Made airline reservations and have twice been changed ( time and airport) by the airlines weeks before departure. No emergency situation of weather related problem cited.. Expedia has no say in what can be done re compensation or other considerations for the inconvenience and time to adjust our own travel plans. Now you know if you or I made as many changes we would be paying hundreds in penalties. What i have learned is that Expedia is simply a middle man with no bargaining power or leverage to protect and serve customers from the airlines' own abusive power to shift passengers around for their own business interests. Better to book with the airlines. Join their loyalty clubs and deal with the airlines directly. You may have a better chance of being helped

We used Expedia to book a room at a hotel with trip protection. We had an issue where we had to cancel our plans well enough in advance but Expedia made it impossible to reach someone that could help. We called, we sent emails, and we followed Expedia's customer service requests. They asked us to contact the hotel, we did, and the hotel told us to contact Expedia because they were the only ones that could help us because they have our money. Expedia purposefully creates a catch 22 so they don't have to refund your money for services they never provided. I will never use Expedia and highly advise others to never use them too.

I cancelled our reservations right away and when I say right away it was within 2 hours of booking. Had to call around to the airlines and such to get things resolved. Still waiting for the hotel stay to be refunded. They are not helpful at all! Horrible customer service ever!!!!!! I didn’t realize it before but looking at the reviews I’ve realized I’m not the only one that feels this way! They are not helpful at all and even 1star rating is way more than they are deserving of. They do not help you with your issues at all. To get in contact with an agent you have to wait several hours and I’m taking 7hr+. I have called multiple times, with the agent ending the call before a resolution can be configured. Agents are rude. Agents end your calls. Calls are ended before even discussing a resolution. By far the worst customer service ever! Do not do business here. I have called and no one is available to speak with you! I waited and waited to speak with someone and asked for a call back when it asked if I wanted one through the automated system because it was going to be 7+ hours on hold. Still didn't get a call back. Went on vacation and came back still noting. It has been almost two months and finally called back again only to have to call the hotel figure out who I spoke with what they do there and if they are willing to credit me back for the stay that was cancelled right away, mind you when I called the hotel the first time they said that they do not charge you until you show up and pay them for they intended stay. Now Expedia is hold my money ransom until they do there investigation. Not right at all when it clearly was stated that if you cancel within 24 hours you get a full refund. They better get me my money back! Can not give less then 1 star I would if i could.

I booked a flight on July 27 for and August 4th trip. Expedia said that I can change the flight anytime or cancel for a full refund 24 hours prior to the flight. I did change my plans and using the Expedia website on July 29th. When I looked, on July 30th, at my credit card I saw that they had not issued a credit to my Visa card for the flight that I had changed (and already taken). I called and spoke to someone and they said that I have booked a new flight and not changed my original one. I explained that I most certainly used their "change travel" web option (why else would it ask me for the original itinerary number. ). So I told her "whatever", since you have full refund cancellation if 24 hours prior, just cancel the flight and refund me. She keep telling me that I booked the flight on the 27th so I couldn't cancel. I told her several times that it doesn't matter when I booked it - I am cancelling well within the 24 hour prior period. She refused to refund my credit card so now it's in the hands of Visa - but I'm not paying for the flight that I changed on their site. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Expedia - just a horrible experience.

Our flights were cancelled due to Covid and we have not been able to use the $1,000 in credits Expedia owes us. We have literally spent hours on the phone over 6+ months trying to use out credits. Even got an email from them telling us the credit balance. Two different times we've tried to use them. The flights would get booked and then two days later they show up as cancelled. They never call back when they tell you a manager will call you. It is just the absolute worst customer service. They are thieves and have stolen our money. The worst part is there is no recourse. I've read so many reviews with people having the same issues. Do yourself a favor and book directly with the airlines.

Expedia charged my credit card for a room reservation at hotel that was completely booked. When I arrived at the hotel and headed they were booked, they apologized profusely, immediately cancelled the booking on their end, and said to contact Expedia for a refund. I tried calling and chatting Expedia for 3 days, was put on long holds of up to 39 minutes, and was disconnected 4 times. Their virtual chat feature was a useless bot. When I finally got an agent on the phone, he was likely in the Philippines, had limited English skills, and a thick, hard to understand accent. He tried to tell me the booking was non refundable and he couldn’t issue a refund. I had to repeat multiple times that the hotel was already booked and Expedia erroneously made the reservation and charged my card. He tried to say I had to contact the hotel for a refund. I told him no, the hotel canceled it on their end and told me to contact Expedia. The Expedia rep then said he would need to email the hotel to verify that the hotel was booked and get a waiver to issue a refund. He said that could take several days. I was shocked—this is an online booking company in the 21st century and that’s the best they could do? I then conferenced in the hotel with the Expedia rep on the line. The hotel clerk confirmed that they had canceled the reservation 3 days ago and that Expedia had to issue the refund. Finally, the Expedia rep had to agreed to issue the refund. The Expedia rep had no answer for why they charged my credit card and booked me for a hotel that had no availability. Expedia tried to steal my money, and if I hadn’t conference called the hotel they would’ve succeeded. This was the worst customer experience I’ve ever had. I will never trust or use Expedia again.

Soon-to-be-bankrupt Expedia. Do not trust Expedia to stand by the customer. They have outsourced their customer service and only care about profits now. What a joke. Also, I've reported Expedia to the Department of Transportation. If you have any issues, reach out to the DOT and Expedia will get back to you in no time. Expedia actually responded in 6 hours. Record time. Wow!

Scammers. The airline cancelled my flight and refunded Expedia. I called Expedia customer service many times and each time they promised me a full refund to my card with confirmation email within 24h of the call. No confirmation email ever came, and now it's 3 weeks later and I see flight credits have appeared in my account when they promised I would receive an actual refund and not flight credits. What's more, the $1000+ of credits are unusable when I click on them! Do not book anything through Expedia. They are complete scammers and the lure of a good deal is NOT worth it.

Do NOT USE EXPEDIA Do NOT ever book any vacations, flights, hotels with Expedia. They have terrible customer service. They’re not based in the US. They’re in India. If you try to call them trying to change your reservation forget it. They will provide you with a bunch of misinformation. Do yourself a favor book directly with the airline and save yourself the headache.

You cant call someone there right now. Now they say iys harder to talk to person because more people are traveling so expect longer than normal wait times. It was impossible before anyway. The fact that they just want to take your money and not provide any help after that means this is a horrible company. Their website often sends you someplace else to get you to sign up for other things. Just now i tried to find the hotel i like and even typed the name of it in their search box and it will only show me the $495 a night hotels. This used to be an ok site but now they have done away with customer service and ruined their own site to where it noblonger works and they want you as a customer? It will not suprise me to see this company out of business in the next month or two And they should be. This is what happens when a business enacts so many anti customer policies like expedia has it call financial suicide. Will be a good day when these idiots learn their lesson

Booked 4 flights on June 1st @ 11:50 p.m. Called in to change and or cancel flights on June 2nd @2:30 after the messaging service told me I'd needed to discuss it with a representative. Was on hold for 1 hour 45 min before I took the call back option. NEVER Received a call back. I called in June 3rd @8:00 a.m. FINALLY got connected to a representative who informed me that since it had been past 24hours THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO! THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS STOLEN DUE TO A PETTY SCAM OPERATED COMPANY. Travel insurance is a joke. I purchased basic economy, and with those you can't change or upgrade your tickets. This company is filled with disgusting thieves and a script. I will never go through a 3rd party site again.

Expedia is terrible to work with! Do not travel with them if you can avoid it at all costs! We had booked a flight over a year ago, and we were supposed to travel back in August of 2020. I had a medical condition come up, and I was advised by my doctor not to travel. With covid, and my doctors guidance, I requested my flight to be cancelled and refunded. When I booked this flight, I was told that it was 100% refundable. Here we are nearly a year later and Expedia won't do a single thing for us! We have had the run around and been told that we would receive a refund on several occasions, but still have not received anything. These guys are scam artists, and will find a way to take your money! Do not travel with Expedia!
