Expedia Travel Packages Can Save You Thousands On Flights
A member in our Facebook Group posted a comment that he was getting flights for thousands of dollars less on Expedia via bundled travel bookings. I found this interesting and decided to check it out a little further. It turns out that booking Expedia travel packages can save you thousands on flights. Expedia must be purchasing a massive amount of flights in advance to get this steep of a discount. Maybe this is a short lived glitch but you will want to check out Expedia for cash flights in the future.
I have an upcoming trip to Amsterdam so I decided to do a dummy booking to see if I could recreate the Facebook member’s results. It didn’t take long, I had the same results with my first try.
First, I searched Google Flights for the lowest priced flight. I settled on two direct flights on Delta. For two people in economy the flight came out to just under $4000.
I then went to Expedia to book my package and the results were pretty shocking. I was able to choose the exact same flights AND a stay at the Hilton hotel by the train station. The cost was just over $2200 for the flights and hotel. Say What?!? $1800 cheaper and it came with a hotel? That hotel would cost close to $1500 to book directly for the same dates. That is like getting the flights for $350 each…what is going on here?
If you have upcoming cash travel be sure to search Expedia first. Expedia travel packages can save you thousands on flights and get you a hotel room for essentially free. That doesn’t include what you would get back by booking through a shopping portal (6% on Ebates right now) and in Expedia rewards (which I know nothing about). You can even use a card like your Chase Sapphire Reserve to earn 3 points per dollar on the booking. I think your travel credit should work towards the booking as well.
