Expedia promo codes and credit card discounts

If you’re on the hunt for Expedia promo codes or Expedia credit card promotions, brace yourself for some serious discounts.

Want to make the most out of your hotel or flight bookings on Expedia?

The good news is that there are plenty of promotions going around and you’re likely to find one you can avail. Here’s a teaser: if you have a DBS, UOB, HSBC, Maybank or Citibank credit card, you’re already eligible for some promo codes or vouchers! To help you out, we’ve compiled the various ongoing Expedia promotions in a single page.

Before making your bookings, however, look up your desired accommodation on Skyscanner to determine if Expedia’s the right choice. Skyscanner pitches the prices on Expedia against those on other online travel agencies (OTAs) such as Agoda, Booking.com and Hotels.com, so you’ll know whether you’re getting the best deal.

If you still choose Expedia after that, then you can continue to redeem eligible promotions.

Earning Expedia loyalty points

In case you’re not aware, Expedia has a rewards system for its members. Signing up for an account makes you a member and gives you a Blue status, and you can progress to Silver or Gold status after qualifying through spendings.

Every $15 spent on hotels, package and activities earns you 20 points, while every $15 spent on flights earns you 2 points. You can use the Expedia Rewards points to get discounts on your travel without adhering to any limitations of blackout dates. You can also use these points to book for your friends and family.

Silver and Gold members have extra perks, such as bonus points on eligible bookings, exclusive travel offers, and free amenities and drinks at select VIP Access hotels.

Tip: When you use Skyscanner to compare accommodation prices, you’ll still be eligible for your loyalty points on Expedia. After all, Skyscanner will redirect you to Expedia once you’ve found your ideal stay. Read the Skyscanner FAQ page to understand more.

Expedia promo codes and credit card promotions

Expedia has partnerships with most of the major banks in Singapore. At any point of time, there’s typically at least one valid Expedia promo code per bank that gives cardholders discounts. Such discounts are typically for hotel bookings only, but sometimes also for package (flight + hotel) bookings.

Note that only selected hotels are eligible for use with Expedia discount codes. These hotels are labelled “Expedia Rate” and they’re not part of the hotel exclusion list.

Earning miles through bookings on Expedia

Apart from getting discounts by applying Expedia promo codes, you can also potentially stretch your dollar by earning miles with your travel credit cards. If you have the right cards for it, use them!
