Everybody likes rewards, especially when it means finding savings to put towards that long overdue vacation. Expedia.ca, Canada’s leading online travel provider*, unveiled the launch of Expedia+, a new customer loyalty program available as of today. Not tied to a single hotel chain or airline, Expedia+ members will be able to earn points when booking any one of the 400 airlines or 290,000 hotels worldwide, plus on a myriad of other travel offerings. Expedia+ offers free membership at tiered levels for opportunities to both earn and redeem points.
- Earn 2 points per $1 spent on hotels, packages with a hotel, activities, and select car rentals
- Double-up on flights by earning 1 point per $5 spent and airline frequent flyer miles
- Earn 1 point per $1 spent on flight + car packages
- Earn triple the points when booking your travel on the Expedia mobile app
The program is designed to make it easier for Canadians to earn points faster on nearly all parts of their trip. Expedia.ca customers can get upgrades and amenities at more top hotels, redeem points for more parts of their trip and get the level of priority service and freedom of choice that great travellers crave.
As an Expedia+ member, travellers are also privy to the Expedia Hotel Price Guarantee that ensures extended price match up until midnight before check-in and access to member exclusive offers.
