Welcome more guests

Optimise your listings and boost your performance with the combined power of our travel brands, B2B network, technology and tools.


Attract more travellers to your hotel property

When you list with Expedia Group, you get the combined reach of our well-loved traveller brands and our vast B2B network, which includes offline travel agencies, financial institutions and the biggest corporate travel agencies in the world. This extended reach can lead to more diverse travellers and more opportunity for your business.

Drive bookings year round

While scale all year long matters, we know that for partners like you, there’s value in attracting guests you can’t reach alone—travellers who book weekend getaways, travel mid-week for work or fill your shoulder-season rooms.


Increase demand and attract high-value guests

One Key unifies Expedia, Hotels.com and Vrbo into one simple and easy-to-use programme. It allows travellers to earn and use across all three brands and on various trip components including eligible hotels, holiday homes, flights, car hire and more. One Key can help you attract high-value travellers who spend more per booking and travel more frequently than non-members.*

Benefit from the broadest offerings in travel. Travellers can shop for different trip add-ons, evaluate price points and amenities and arrange transfers to and from the airport—all in one place. Travellers that book multi-item trips book earlier, stay longer and cancel less than those that book individual trip elements.** Reaching these high-value travellers can help you scale your business in all seasons.

Reach travellers that are hard to access through your own channels by tapping into our extensive B2B network, which includes financial institutions, membership organisations, travel agencies and thousands of businesses around the world that leverage our platform and technology.

 

This extended reach and visibility gives you access to travellers in more emerging markets and those who tend to stay longer, travel more internationally and fill more mid-week bookings.*

Frequently asked questions


Sign up

To list your property with Expedia Group, sign up through our online form. You will need the following information:

  • Property address
  • Property type
  • Number of individual spaces that can be booked at each property
  • Contact details for ongoing correspondence

Verify your account and review business terms


Next, we’ll send you an email to verify your account and ask you to sign in to our secure platform. From there, you can review our standard business terms, including the compensation percentage (paid only when you have bookings) and ways to get paid.

Have any tax and regulatory information ready if required by your local government.


Set up your listing


Now it’s time to describe your property. We’ll prompt you for the detail travellers want about the rooms, grounds and amenities you offer. The information you enter will save automatically, so it’s easy to come back if you don’t have all the answers.


What you’ll need:
 

  • Details about rooms—layout, bed size, etc.
  • A list of available amenities—from Wi-Fi to swimming pools
  • Rates by type of room
  • Hi-resolution pictures of rooms, common spaces and amenities
  • A list of fees, deposits and policies
  • The dates you’re available to welcome guests


That’s it! Soon, your property will be live and available to millions of travellers researching trips in our marketplace. When you receive a booking, you’ll be able to message the guest, providing and requesting information to help you anticipate needs and streamline check-in.

Thankfully, no! You do not need to sign up for all Expedia Group brands separately. When you partner with us, your listing will appear on some of the world’s leading online travel brands, including Expedia, Hotels.com and more, as well as on our B2B network. Collectively, our sites cover virtually every aspect of researching, planning and booking travel. Leisure and business travellers with various tastes and budgets rely on our sites for all their travel needs.

Compensation for reservations varies around the globe, and we’ll share the percentage for your market as part of the contracting process.

Our easy-to-use platform, Partner Central, will be the primary location for managing reservations, loading inventory, changing rates and keeping your listing up to date. Many partners choose to use a connectivity provider to link to our systems and automatically perform daily tasks. They log in to Partner Central to leverage our more advanced tools including competitive set analysis, real-time market pricing and other marketing programmes. If you have any problems, our local teams are ready to help.

No, you don’t need to work with a connectivity provider or have a connectivity solution in place to effectively list your property with Expedia Group. However, having worked with over a million properties globally, we know manually managing your inventory can take up a lot of time. A connectivity provider creates a two-way flow of information between your systems and ours, so reservations, rates and availability update automatically. Displaying accurate inventory maximises the impact of your listing and reduces the risk of overbooking.

We answer common questions and provide more in-depth instructions for using our technology on our Help and Support page within Partner Central:

If you can’t find what you need, you can contact support teams through the same page:
