More demand


The simplicity of the program gives travelers the flexibility to earn and redeem rewards through Expedia, Hotels.com, and Vrbo. By attracting even more travelers to become members and to book through our well-loved travel brands, we’re creating more demand for you.


More high-value travelers


You’ll always attract those valuable travelers who book more often, spend more, stay longer, and cancel less because One Key members must qualify annually — they’re not automatically granted lifetime membership like some other travel rewards programs.

More investment in you


Expedia Group funds the cost of OneKeyCash™, the rewards currency that members earn and redeem on eligible trip elements. Unlike other travel rewards programs, we cover that cost so it doesn’t impact your revenue strategy.


One Key members deliver unmatched value

Our travel rewards program members are the high-value travelers you want. They travel often, spend more, and love booking with our partners again and again.

Transportation & activities


One Key offers a host of benefits for every type of travel and every trip element.

Airlines

Members earn airline miles and OneKeyCash at the same time, making your own airline rewards program even more valuable to travelers.

Car rentals

Your price points are ideal for members to both earn and redeem OneKeyCash faster — meaning more bookings for you.

Cruises

Members can earn rewards through your cruise rewards program and OneKeyCash with the same booking, reinforcing the benefits of your own program.

Activities

Price points for activities help members earn faster and are the ideal trip element for redeeming OneKeyCash, which promotes more bookings of activities and airport transfers.

Frequently asked questions

One Key is the most comprehensive travel rewards program we've ever created. Bringing Expedia, Hotels.com, and Vrbo together within a single travel suite, One Key gives members the freedom to be rewarded any way they travel — on eligible flights, car rentals, hotels, vacation rentals, and more. Learn more about the traveler benefits of the program on Hotels.com, Expedia, and Vrbo.

Previously, Expedia Group had separate travel rewards programs for Expedia and Hotels.com and no rewards program for Vrbo. These individual programs used different reward structures and didn’t provide the ability to earn and use rewards between the two. One Key replaces Expedia Rewards and Hotels.com Rewards and introduces a first-ever rewards program to Vrbo.

 

Not only can travelers earn rewards with our three brands — Expedia, Hotels.com, and Vrbo — they also can earn across different trip products, too: eligible hotels, vacation rentals, car rentals, flights, cruises, and more. One Key also introduces OneKeyCash, the new rewards currency travelers can earn as a percentage of purchases, which can then be used to discount eligible future travel when booking on Expedia, Hotels.com, and Vrbo.* One Key brings Expedia, Hotels.com, and Vrbo under one simple, easy-to-use, and flexible travel rewards program. 

One Key launched in the U.S. in July 2023, with additional markets to follow starting this year. Our other travel rewards programs will remain in place in any market where One Key has yet to launch.

No, partners are automatically included as part of this change. Hotel, transport, and activities partners can use the tactics mentioned on this page to further encourage One Key members to book with them. Any offers you’re using to attract One Key members, such as Members Only Deals, in-stay perks, and being a VIP Access property, will automatically transfer to One Key and One Key members.

OneKeyCash redemption is only available to properties using USD currency and those not integrated with property management software.

Travelers can learn more about One Key on each travel brand's website: Hotels.com, Expedia, and Vrbo.
