Expedia Hotel Redemptions

VIP Hotel Redemptions

If you're looking to get the best value out of your Expedia Rewards Points, redeeming your points for Expedia's VIP Access Hotels is the best option. VIP Access Hotels offer superior service and receive the highest of reviews on the Expedia website. It's pretty easy to spot these hotels as they will have a VIP Access logo on the listing when you're searching the list.

The 'VIP Access' written above Loews Atlanta Hotel lets you know your points are worth double here!

When you apply your Expedia Points towards VIP Access Hotel redemptions, 70 points will equal CA $1 which is the best value of 1.42 cents each. So 7,000 Expedia Points will be worth around CA $100. The table below lists the cash value you can get out of Expedia Points (you can also use the Cash To Expedia Points Calculator above).

Non-VIP Hotel Redemptions

Non-VIP hotels redemptions will be 140 points for CA $1 which will give your Expedia Rewards Points a value of 0.71 cents per point. This is the same value you will get from all other redemptions on the Expedia website which is half the value of VIP redemptions. These will be hotels that do not feature the VIP logo on the listings.

VIP Hotels -vs- Non-VIP Hotels

The difference between VIP and non-VIP hotels is really grand since you'll receive double the value. If you're aiming for the best value, I recommend trying to aim for VIP hotels. The table below lists the cash value of Expedia Rewards Points with VIP and non-VIP hotels.

VIP Hotel vs Non-VIP Hotel Redemptions
Cash Value
Cash Amount VIP Hotels Non-VIP Hotels
CA $100 7,000 Points 14,000 Points
CA $150 10,500 Points 21,000 Points
CA $300 21,000 Points 42,000 Points
CA $500 35,000 Points 70,000 Points
CA $1,000 70,000 Points 140,000 Points

The redemptions for VIP and non-VIP Hotels make a big difference. If you're planning on redeeming your Expedia Points for hotels, be sure to check for VIP Access Hotels in the area.

Car Rental Redemptions

Redeeming your Expedia Points for car rentals will give you a value of 0.71 cents per point which is equal to 140 points for CA $1. When you're booking your rental, you'll be able to rent with all of the major companies including:

  • Advantage
  • Alamo
  • Avis
  • Budget
  • Enterprise
  • Fox
  • Dollar
  • Hertz
  • National
  • Payless
  • Sixt
  • Thrifty

As with other redemptions, you'll need to have enough Expedia Rewards Points to cover your car rental. You can use the Cash to Expedia Points Calculator to see how many points you need. Generally, you can get some pretty low rates on car rental bookings by booking direct.

Flight Redemptions

Expedia Points can used to purchase airfare tickets at a value of 140 points for CA $1 which will give you a value of 0.71 cents per point. This means a CA $300 ticket would cost you around 42,260 Expedia Points. When compared to redeeming your points for VIP hotels, you could get CA $600 in value.

If you're looking to save on flights, I recommend looking into Bank Rewards Credit Cards or even Airline Credit Cards as you can generally get some great value for your money and earn award flights quicker.

Attractions

Expedia Rewards Points can be applied towards Attractions. You can search things to do around a specified city such as museums, tours, zoos, and more. Since most attractions are generally cheap, these will not require a lot of points to cover. A CA $20 ticket would cost you around 2,820 Expedia Points. Considering that all redemptions outside of VIP hotels will give you the same value, redeeming your points for Attractions is an option if you're looking to save money.

Package Coupon

Expedia Rewards Points can be redeemed for a package coupon for up to a value of CAD $300. These coupons can be deposited into your Expedia Rewards account for future use. You'll still get the same value of 0.71 cents per point with this redemption. These coupons can be redeemed towards bookings that are booked and travelled within 12 months of the coupon's issuance.

Summary

Getting the best value out of Expedia Points doesn't require any complicated equations or lots of research. You'll get the best value of 1.42 cents when you redeem your points for Expedia's VIP Access Hotels and a value of 0.71 for all other redemptions.

If you typically redeem your points for non-VIP hotels and you're loyal (or really like) a specific hotel brand or two, you should check out earning Hotel Loyalty Points as you can get a significantly higher return as well as earn free nights faster. If you stay at any brand, other great programs for lodging includes Agoda, Hotels.com and PointsHound which you'll want to compare against the prices for Expedia.
