Ready for your next vacation? No matter where you’re headed, you can always get great deals on Expedia. The trick is knowing where to find them. Luckily, the Groupon Coupons team did the hard work for you and uncovered every possible way to save on Expedia, including with our own collection of Expedia coupons. Read on for more savings tips.
Who knows better about scoring deals on Expedia than the booking site itself? Expedia recommends booking hotels, flights, and car rentals the following ways:
Found a lower hotel rate on Expedia or another site? If you’re an Expedia Rewards member, you can complete a Hotel Price Guarantee and Expedia will refund the difference.
For selected flights, you can purchase Price Match Promise and Expedia will automatically refund you the difference should your flight price drop.
Expedia Rewards is a free, 3-tiered loyalty program that earns you 2 points with every $1 you spend on Expedia. You can then use those points to save an average of $35 per booking. You start at the Blue tier and graduate to the Silver and Gold tiers (which have more perks and higher discounts) by reaching a minimum spend or completed bookings.

Expedia Rewards members will definitely want to download the Expedia app, as it gets them double Rewards points on every booking. You’ll also be able to book app-exclusive deals on many popular destinations. Plus, you’ll have your entire itinerary in one convenient place.
You’ll want to bookmark the Expedia Black Friday Sale to get huge savings on flights, hotels, car rentals, and vacation packages. You should also be on the lookout for deals around any major U.S. holiday, such as Labor Day and Christmas.
Packages with Expedia are always a better deal than when you buy flights, hotels, or rental cars individually. With Expedia, you can book bundles as follows.
Certain deals may be subject to blackout dates, so make sure your desired travel dates are included in your package.
It may pay to procrastinate. Hotels with last-minute cancellations are incentivized to offer some impressive deals to fill those rooms. If you’re flexible with your last-minute travel, you’ll likely find hotels up to 25% off the regular rate. Here are a few deals we found:
