Expedia Unlocks New Way to Save on Travel
Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Expedia Add-On Advantage grants instant access to hotel discounts by booking a flight, car or package

BELLEVUE, Wash., June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Expedia.com(®) announced the launch of the Add-On Advantage, the newest way for travelers to save. With the Expedia Add-On Advantage, travelers can now qualify for hotel discounts up to 43 percent off at any point before their trip by booking either a flight, car or package on Expedia.com.

Expedia is always looking for ways to make booking a bargain easier and has been testing the ability for travelers to add on a hotel at a discount after booking a flight, car or package. In 2017, travelers who booked this way saved nearly $40 million. With more hotels available than ever and the option to book a discounted hotel right up to the travel date, Expedia expects Americans to save even more in 2018.

­­­Aaron Price, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at Brand Expedia, comments: "Packages are still a great way to save, but we recognize it isn't always the easiest or most convenient way for travelers to book. A recent study(1) shows more than 40 percent of people prefer to book their flight first. The launch of the Add-On Advantage is yet another example of how we are listening to our travelers and helping to bring their next trip within reach."

"People make an average of 43 searches before booking anything and getting the best price remains the top concern for people booking travel(2). No longer will they need to visit multiple sites to know they're getting an unbeatable deal on accommodations simply because they booked a flight, car or package," says Price. "Better yet, it takes away the pressure of planning and paying for everything up front."

How to save with the Add-On Advantage

    --  Travelers simply book a flight, car, or package to any destination on
        Expedia.com
    --  Hotel savings on select properties are instantly unlocked up until the
        start of their trip
    --  The hotel stay needs to occur within the travel dates of the flight, car
        or package purchase
