Activities now available on Expedia app

Improvements keep coming to the Expedia app! Last month, we updated our launch screen and added the ability to book a rental car in the United States. Today, we’re pleased to introduce activities and ground transportation options for your vacations around the world.

Excursions on vacation are memorable moments that can make a trip shine. We offer tickets to various shows, theme parks, and sightseeing tours at different times of day, and can accommodate an array of party sizes.

Booking activities can be a challenge—particularly for a family. Travelers may need one ticket for a senior, two for adults, one for a teenager, and two for kids. Our app experience simplifies this task by letting you select the options you want through easy toggles and buttons to find and book activities in different cities around the globe. The Expedia app then stores your confirmation voucher in the “Your Trips” section for quick redemption at your activity’s check-in location.

Expedia also understands that arriving at your destination really is just the beginning of a great trip. Often, people need a transfer or some sort of ground transportation—such as a shuttle—to take them from the airport to where they’re staying. We knew when we launched the Expedia app we wanted to offer travelers the ability to book this content and have it immediately available in their itineraries. We hope you agree that by including this content, the Expedia app is even more complete as a mobile travel companion.

Download or update the Expedia app for iPhone or Android phone today. And if you live in a popular tourist destination where Expedia activities are available, then there’s no need to make an official trip to enjoy the perks of this feature—we encourage you to try it out for an adventure close to home! Many of these outings have the makings for a perfect date or family staycation.
