Expedia hotel cancellation:


Can you no longer use the hotel you booked through Expedia? Expedia allows you to cancel your hotel by going to the “manage my hotel” if it is permitted by the hotel policy. It is important to note that each hotel has different policies about when and if you can cancel your booking. Make sure to read the hotel’s rules and regulations and the fine print in your booking itinerary. 


How to cancel your hotel booked on Expedia: 


Step 1:  Sign-in & go to My Trips

Step 2: Go to Manage Booking and click on Cancel Booking.

Step 3: Follow the rest of the instructions.  


Important Note: If you do not see an option to cancel, this means that you are either too close to your check-in date or that the hotel was non-refundable. Contact Expedia customer service directly for further assistance on cancelling your hotel. It could also mean that you booked an Expedia Saver Hotel. If this is the case, these hotel bookings are completely non-refundable and you are unable to cancel them for any circumstance.


Can I get a refund for the hotel I booked with Expedia?


Be aware, some hotels are partly refundable or completely non-refundable. You can find this information in your itinerary in the fine print. If you are able to cancel your reservation, Expedia will not charge you a cancellation fee. But wait, the hotel might still do so. Make sure to check the hotel’s individual rules and regulations to find if they will charge you a cancellation fee and how much it will be. You are responsible for paying this fee if you choose to cancel. 


Can I change my Expedia Hotel booking? 


Good news, Expedia allows you to make a variety of changes to your hotel on “manage my hotel”.  They will not charge you a fee to change: guest name, bed type, smoking preference, special requests, and accessibility options. Although, they will charge you to change the room type, number of guests, and travel dates. These charges will depend on the hotel and you will be responsible for paying all of them and any additional fees that result from the changes. 



How to change your Expedia hotel booking:


Step 1: Sign in and go to your bookings. 

Step 2: Under Upcoming choose the itinerary you wish to change.

Step 3: In Hotel overview, click on Change this reservation and then follow the rest of the instructions.


How can I recover more of the money I spent on my hotel?


Are you stuck with a hotel reservation that you can’t cancel or get a full refund for? Do you want to recover more money from your hotel booking but don’t know how? Have you ever thought about selling your hotel room to someone else?  It won’t cost you anything and you can recover some or all of the money you paid for it. Hotels allow you to change the name of the main guest under the reservation, which is how a booking is transferred from one person to the other. Neither the hotel, nor Expedia will change you anything for the name change, so you can keep all the money you get form selling your room!


How do I sell my Expedia Hotel Booking?


First you will have to change the name on your reservation to the person buying your hotel room. Luckily, Expedia allows you to change the name on your reservation for free. Follow the instructions above under ‘How to change your Expedia hotel booking’ to make this change.
