We booked our hotel for our Walt Disney World honeymoon through Expedia and it was great. Not only did we get an amazing price but they gave us a night free plus $100.00 of free credits to use towards dining at the hotel (hello room service!).

We didn’t have any issues at check-in or during our stay and in fact we were given an amazing complimentary upgrade.

We’ve booked all our trips through expedia and have booked holidays through them in the past….I’ve had no problems whatsoever and have found them really competitively priced.

I book Vegas trips in Expedall whenever I go. It’s great and sooooo much cheaper than separately.

we have booked several trips through expendia. We only had a problem once. they booked us in an awful motel once. It was awful. no heat or air in the rooms UGH!

But that was the only time they let us down…but it was a pretty big let down. thank goodness it was only one night

We’ve booked a couple Vegas trips, and some flights to get to cruises (but not the cruises) through Expedia.  Might have even bough flights to Australia there.  Super easy, never had any issues, my only beef with them is i think they have some low price guarantee that is shady in it’s wording and never applies because of the fine print.  But hey, no big deal, overall the prices are just fine anyway.

We booked our Honeymoon through BOOKIT.COM. We haven’t gone yet, but my best friend books through them all the time with no problems. We have 5 nights, all inclusive, transportation, and flights for $2200 to Mexico!

Expedia is pretty good.  I booked couple flights or hotels throught the website and found no issue.  I also booked the flight and hotel in Hawaii for my wedding.

We booked our family vacation to Maui through Expedia 2 years ago, no real problems–but I would only do it if they had a significant discount–we round trip flight from nyc and 10 days in a very nice hotel for 2k per couple. This time around for our wedding it actually worked out cheaper not to book the hotel, flight, and car together

One disadvantage is that it makes things more difficult if you want to change your reservation, like to a different hotel–especially once you’re there.

Also, you pay for everything before you go, vs you usually pay for the hotel at check out.

 

But sometimes there are really good deals and it’s worth it

We booked our Honeymoon flights to Costa Rica through Expedia as well as our hotel room for our wedding night. I find their site easy to use. No problems so far.

I’ve booked trips within ontario more than five times, to Minneapolis, two trips to Los Angeles and my parents have used it for their yearly carribean trip for the last nine years. So far I haven’t had a single issue.

Expedia Unpublished Rates! Especially if you aren’t going to an area with a ton of hotels, you can usually figure out what some of the hotels are in the unpublished section so you can have a pretty good idea what hotel it is before you book. I have gotten the most amazing deals this way. Also use the rate calendar feature if your dates are flexible, and when the rates are cheapest it’s at the quietest time for the hotels and the best time to ask for upgrades when you check in. We got a $600 suite this way for $200!

I bid on Priceline or choose Hotwire Hot Deals for all of my trips.  You can get a four star hotel for under $100 per night usually.  I booked the Westin Spa and Resort on Hilton Head Island for $65 a night this past June; it’s normally over $200 a night!  I don’t mind not being able to pick the hotel so long as it’s somewhere nice.  The Hotwire Hot Deals are really good because they show the recommendation rate of previous guests at the hotel (only pick 80% or higher to get the best hotels.)

I say save the money on the hotel room and spend the savings on direct flights or massages/excursions once you’re at the resort.  I haven’t booked a hotel directly since 2005.

We booked our puerto vallarta trip through expedia, no major problems. It just annoying if you want to change anything, major fees!
