How is Expedia so cheap?
Expedia buys hotel rooms in bulk from many chains and many individual hotels.
They get a good price from the hotel – a really good price – because the hotel gets guaranteed income for that room – and they can pass all or some of that price difference to you – but that means Expedia is on the hook to sell it..
Is it better to book through Expedia or the airline?
When it comes down to it, booking directly through the airline is almost always more convenient. If the price changes after you buy your ticket, many airlines will get you the difference back. … Expedia and Travelocity both offer a Price Match Guarantee, but only if you find the lower fare within 24 hours of booking.
