Expedia is a travel company that allows you to book air fares, car rentals, accommodation and travel experiences all in one place. If you’re a frequent traveller, or just planning a one-off trip, you should be keeping an eye out for any way to save on travel. Credit cards that offer Expedia promotions are one way to save.
This guide will help you compare Expedia promotions from different credit card providers.
Expedia offers a mix of promotions that can be used to secure discounts on travel bookings. Specific credit card holders can gain access to 10% discounts on hotel reservations. Expedia itself offers discounted rates for account holders who make a hotel booking within nine days of making a flight booking. Be sure to check out our Expedia discount codes and coupons page to learn more.
Which credit cards offer Expedia promotions?
American Express and HSBC offer Expedia promotions for card holders.
American Express card users have access to up to 50% off hotel bookings from Expedia. You must use your American Express card for payment, in order to secure a discount. If you’re looking for more travel-related credit card perks, consider the American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card, which offers accelerated air mile earnings and a bonus air mile gift if you reach a certain minimum spend.
With an HSBC card, users will be able to access a 10% discount on hotel bookings made through Expedia. To earn more air miles, consider the HSBC Revolution Credit Card, which offers double the miles on certain purchases.
How to redeem an Expedia credit card promotion
You’ll need to hold a credit card that offers an Expedia credit card promotion in order to redeem that promotion. If you hold an eligible card, you should be able to find an associated promotion code for Expedia, either in the contract you received with the card or on your card provider’s website.
Once you have the code, head to Expedia’s site and make your way through the booking process until you reach the payment page. There should be a link asking you to “Enter a voucher code”, at which point you enter your Expedia promo code. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to click “apply code”. If your promotion code is valid, you’ll find your Expedia booking cost discounted.
When does my Expedia promotion expire?
You’ll have to head to your card provider’s website to check the terms and conditions of various promotions and deals. Most deals with Expedia are valid for all of 2019, but it’s best to double check.
What to look out for?
There are two conditions to keep an eye out for when it comes to travel promotions: blackout dates and travel dates.
Blackout dates: Always be sure to check for blackout periods when it comes to travel deals. These are dates, often public holidays and school holidays (peak seasons) when promotions can’t be used.
Travel dates: Look out for “booking period” and “stay period”. The “booking period” refers to the window of time in which the promotion allows you to make a booking. For example, if the promotion is for 2019, you can make a booking at any time during the year and secure a discount. The “stay period” refers to when you make the booking for. For example, I may make a booking tomorrow for a holiday in 2020. Most Expedia promos require you to “stay” before March 2020, but be sure to read the terms and conditions to confirm.
It’s unlikely. Most promotions specify that they can’t be used in conjunction with other offers. On occasion you may be able to double up, but this only tends to happen when one card holder is offering a seasonal addition to an existing offer, for example 10% off plus a special S$30 discount.
You won’t be able to secure the promotional rate for your booking. If the “stay period” of the promotion ends on 31 March and you want to stay in a hotel from 25 March until 2 April, you won’t be eligible for the promotion.
Expiry dates on promotions are fixed. If you sign up for a new card in July and an offer expires in March, you will not be able to redeem the promotion. Most of Expedia’s promotions are valid for the full year, so you should be fine in this regard. Signing up for a credit card in the new year generally gives you the greatest amount of time to make use of promotions. Be sure to read the terms and conditions associated with any deal or promo.
