Expedia Stops Accepting Bitcoin, Driving Users to Alternative Travel Sites

EXPE

Expedia, the online travel agency that has been one of the largest merchants to accept bitcoin since 2014, has quietly stopped accepting the cryptocurrency, forcing users to seek alternative travel services. Marketexclusive.com reported on July 2 that an Expedia spokesperson confirmed the company would not accept bitcoin for hotel or flight bookings and that it was evaluating alternative payment options. The report noted that Expedia faced frequent problems with bitcoin payments, including customer dissatisfaction about the payment process timing out, a hectic refund process, and some customers finding they needed to pay with their credit card even after they paid in bitcoin. Jeff Klee, CEO of Cheapair.com, noted in a statement published on Bitcoin.com in late April that Coinbase had informed the travel service that it will no longer support custodial solutions for merchants, and that on April 30 merchants would no longer be able to create new orders using the Coinbase merchant tools.

Travel Troubleshooter: Expedia won't refund my cancelled flight

EXPE

Dear Travel Troubleshooter: I bought a ticket on South African Airways using Expedia. SAA canceled one leg of my flight (I have a letter from SAA confirming its cancellation). Since I had an international connection and there were no other SAA flights, I ended up having to buy a new domestic ticket on a different airline. I am now trying to get a refund for the canceled leg. While I can see on my credit card bill that SAA received payment for the ticket (Expedia got a small commission), SAA is refusing to refund me. I have no idea how to resolve this issue. What is the responsibility of Expedia, and who is benefitting from my canceled flight?

Expedia responds as report identifies “widespread concerns” about hotel booking sites’ practices

EXPE

Expedia responds as report identifies “widespread concerns” about hotel booking sites’ practices. The CMA found that several sites might have breached UK consumer protection laws with the way they displayed search results, employed pressure-selling tactics and claimed to have ‘the lowest price’. The CMA said it will be writing to the sites and asking them to take action to address its concerns. If they fail to do so, the regulator added it would not hesitate to take them to court. A number of concerns have also been passed on to the Advertising Standards Authority to consider whether claims such as ‘best price guarantee’ or ‘lowest price’ are misleading and what conditions need to be met for companies to make such claims.

Expedia Unlocks New Savings Path for Travellers

EXPE

On average, British travellers can secure up to 41% off the cost of their hotel purchase. Expedia has long encouraged travellers to bundle their flight and hotel in a package for maximum savings due to the deep discounts offered by valued lodging partners. Research commissioned by Expedia1 shows 38 percent of people choose to book travel by bundling. However, 43 percent of people, who prefer to book their flight first and then a hotel, are missing out on potential savings by not bundling them together. ­­­Aaron Price, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at Brand Expedia, comments: "When Expedia pioneered online travel more than 20 years ago, we wanted to put the power in the traveller's hands and we've worked tirelessly since to make it easier, more accessible and enjoyable for people to research and book travel. The launch of the Expedia Add-On Advantage is yet another example of how we are listening to our travellers and helping to bring their next trip within reach." "No longer will they need to visit multiple sites when they know they're getting guaranteed access to discounts on accommodation simply from booking a flight, car or package. Better yet, it takes away the pressure of planning and paying for everything up front." How Expedia Add-On Advantage Works.
