Draw in high-value travellers with our travel rewards programme


One Key™ unifies Expedia, Hotels.com and Vrbo into one simple and easy-to-use travel rewards programme. It allows travellers to earn rewards with all three brands and across different eligible trip elements like hotels, flights and more. One Key can help you attract high-value travellers who spend more per booking and travel more frequently than non-members.**

Attract more package bookers


Our omni-channel strategy improves the traveller experience by providing more options to purchase via their preferred method (in store, mobile, web or phone). This gives you more opportunities to cross-sell, upsell and package products—leading to more incremental revenue.


Give travellers better deals with Expedia Exclusive Staterooms


Expedia® Exclusive Staterooms is our group space offering where we block space on thousands of sailings on the most popular itineraries and ships. This gives you the opportunity to sell more inventory in advance, while enabling travellers to get better prices and often better amenities on board, such as cash credits, prepaid gratuities and free airfare.
