Go ahead – sing the Expedia theme song. Right now. I know you know it.
Now that is out of the way, let’s move on to the why of Expedia. It’s actually very simple – of all the aggregators I’ve tried for hotel, car, and flight reservations, Expedia is the furthest reaching and the most easily tweaked. While I adore Kayak’s little map with pictures of special price deals (gives me ideas!), there have been several times I’ve been able to find and book flights on Expedia that I could not find on Kayak.
Plus, Expedia has a points program – Expedia Rewards. But right up front I’ll say that if the points program is your main reason for choosing Expedia, don’t bother.
