Earning

You must be signed in to your Expedia account and Enrolled in the Program prior to completing an eligible booking in order to earn Nights for that booking. Nights will be awarded only to the Company Account. If booking a trip for another individual as a travel arranger using the arranger settings in Company Account, the individual's account you are using to book the travel will earn Nights for the eligible booking only if their Expedia+ Account is enrolled in the Company’s Expedia+ business Account.

After you complete travel Nights at pre-paid Expedia Rate hotels with a nightly rate of at least $50 before taxes and fees, separately or as part of a travel package (“Qualifying Travel”), the Night(s) will be held in pending status for thirty five (35) days after the Qualifying Travel is complete. Pending Nights are not available for redemption usage. Thirty five (35) days after completion of Qualifying Travel, Nights will move from pending status to available status. Once in available status in Company’s Expedia+ business Account, Nights are eligible to be used by the Company Administrator(s) for redemption purposes. Cancellations to the Qualifying Travel will not result in credit toward the Company’s Nights’ balance. Expedia reserves the right to rescind at any time any pending or available Nights that were earned or awarded for unused travel items. Coupons and Nights will be rescinded in cases where an Employee receives a refund, from either Expedia or a travel supplier or vendor. Cancelled itineraries and itineraries where reward coupons are used do not qualify for company reward nights.

Expedia has the right to monitor all Company Account activity. If Company Account shows signs of fraud, abuse, or suspicious activity, Expedia may close or freeze Company’s Account immediately and Company may lose accrued Nights or Coupons. If you have conducted any fraudulent activity, Expedia reserves the right to take any necessary legal action and may have grounds to confiscate any rewards earned as a result of such activity. In addition, you may be liable for monetary losses to Expedia, including litigation costs and damages, and you will not be allowed to participate in the Program in the future. Qualifying Travel discovered to be fraudulent will have their Nights or Coupons rescinded, and the Company’s Business Account associated with such fraudulent bookings will be frozen from further Nights or Coupons earning or redemption activity. To contest freezing of an account or the rescinding of Nights or Coupons, please email Expedia+ business customer service at Expediaplusbusiness@expedia.com.

If Expedia suspects fraud with Company’s Account, Expedia in its sole discretion reserves the right to adjust Company’s Nights or Coupons’ balance. If you believe your Company’s Account has been the subject of any suspicious activity, please contact the Expedia Service Center immediately.

Coupons and Nights accumulation, redemption, and expiration status can be accessed on the Website. Coupons and Nights have no cash value. Company has no property rights or other legal interests in Coupons. Company is responsible for any personal tax liability that may be related to participation in the Program.

If you believe your Company did not receive the correct amount of Nights for a booking, you must contact Expedia+ business customer service at Expediaplusbusiness@expedia.com within ninety (90) days from the travel end date. Expedia will make the final determination as to whether Nights’ adjustments of any kind are justified for the travel in question.
