Expedia Reviews 2016

Since it has been a year, we will be starting to write new reviews about the travel sites we once wrote about last year, just to give you a heads up of the current status or changes of a particular online travel agency. Things can change in a span of a year, that’s why we decided on re-writing some of the written travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.

In this review, we will be re-talking about Expedia.

Expedia Reviews 2016
From a software that provides travel site- like services in 1996 to the idea of making it an individual website to serve customers with more travel related needs in 1999, it was bought by TicketMaster (USA Networks now) in 2001 from Microsoft. The first CEO of the newly-born online travel agency name was originated from the words “exploration and speed” and contains the high-point scrabble letter “X.”

How does Expedia works?
Expedia is another American-based travel site world-renowned as one of the biggest online travel agencies in the world together with FlightHub, Kayak, Skyscanner and JustFly. Basically, Expedia is just like other travel sites wherein travellers can book flights, hotel reservations, car rental services, cruises, activities (things to do) and even bundle deals. These services are done by the regular search and compare method of all online travel agencies.

Expedia+ is the travel site’s membership where travellers will have exclusive access to their special offers. As customers book with them, the more Expedia+ points travellers may earn which can be used as discounts and other travel benefits with Expedia.

Consumers can search, compare and book while earning triple Expedia+ points. Customers can also receive notification of their trip details, map directions and flight alerts if using an Apple device (iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch).

Expedia Reviews 2016 from Customers
Unfortunately, Expedia is not your Superman in travel necessities. Based on 2,306 Expedia Reviews 2016, the travel site had gathered an overall score rating of ⅕ which is obviously not a good impression to anyone planning to use Expedia. I was actually having high hopes that the travel site will at least get an almost perfect score, but I think I only ever expected. Well, what’s worst is some customers even posted videos as reference to their complaints and negative feedback towards Expedia.

Here let me share the most recent review posted on March 3, 2016, where a customer paid for a cruise reservation and was informed twice that the payment didn’t go through. He even got an email of the payment information. So he paid again, and still was informed that no payment went through. Now, they were asking for $600 more for the same cruise. That’s when he had enough and said “Never again. BE CAREFUL.”

It might have been that Expedia was one of the leading travel sites, but I guess they were too fond of themselves. They even started using their fame to lure people to book and take their money, without an equal or right reservation. I wonder why such a travel site changed in a short period of time. It is like they are wasting all their efforts into nothing. Beware of this kind of online travel agency. Stay away from Expedia!



  1. I booked a flight through Expedia with the understanding that the reservation could be cancelled and a refund would be issued. After working through their third world English speakers I was put on hold (with really bad elevator music in the background) for 20 minutes until they cut the line. A call back resulted in the same experience. Both times my telephone number was requested to continue, so I imagine that now I’ll start receiving more “customer surveys”/telemarketers which will require blocking. Overall, Expedia promises a refund if the request is timely made and then does not deliver.
