Tripadvisor tests Instant Book (again)

If you click Book & Get Rewards, you’ll learn that the Tripadvisor Instant Book deal actually comes through a partnership with Expedia

Jun 29, 2023

If travelers complete the booking on Tripadvisor, the booking details will be available on Tripadvisor, but Expedia will be the merchant of record on their credit cards, send the email confirmations, and handle customer service.

Key takeaways

  • While most of the Instant Book reservations several years ago required travelers to pay immediately, now they can pay when they arrive at the hotel;
  • Another new element in this Tripadvisor-Expedia partnership for Instant Book is that Tripadvisor stated that the booking would be eligible for rewards;
  • Tripadvisor says, this "isn’t a strategic shift, but just a recent example of a partnership model that we’ve operated for years."
