Expedia Credit Cards: What You Need to Know  

By: Mary Elizabeth Hammond

Expedia Credit Cards: What You Need to Know  The only thing better than taking a vacation is knowing you got a great deal on it. With Expedia Credit Cards, you can make that happen pretty easily. The more you book on Expedia with your Expedia Credit Card, the more points you’ll earn towards flights, hotels, car rentals, and more. 

We’ve put together a breakdown of the Expedia credit cards, including their reward point system and how to get the most out of it. And cardholder or not, be sure to check out Groupon Coupons’ collection of Expedia coupons (as well as our very own Expedia Savings Guide) for more ways to save. 

Expedia Credit Cards

Expedia offers two credit cards—Expedia Rewards Voyager Card from Citi and Expedia Rewards Card from Citi. Both cards come with steep discounts on travel and some pretty nice perks (like free room upgrades). They also start you off at either the Silver or Gold tier of Expedia Rewards program, where you can earn points faster and redeem them on hotels, flights, car rentals, travel packages, cruises, and things to do. 

Expedia Rewards

Rack up Expedia Rewards points and use them to save on your next vacation. Every 140 points you earn equals $1 to spend on Expedia. And while you can join the Expedia Rewards Program without an Expedia credit card, you’ll earn significantly more points as a cardholder. Here’s how it works:
