The longstanding partnership between Citi and Expedia is now being expanded to allow eligible Citi ThankYou Rewards members book hotel reservations on Expedia with their ThankYou Points.
Citi credit card holders who enrolled in the ThankYou Rewards can now use their points toward bookings at more than 230,000 hotels worldwide via Expedia. In order to access the new capability, ThankYou Rewards members can link their rewards and Expedia accounts.
“This exciting, expanded partnership with Expedia furthers our ability to provide exceptional choice and flexibility to our members,” Mary Hines, managing director of benefits, new product development and global rewards for Citi, said in a press release. “With this launch, members can seamlessly link their accounts and have direct access to a wide selection of hotels worldwide offered through Expedia.com.”
Once an eligible cardholder links their rewards and Expedia accounts, they will have the ability to use their ThankYou Points as a payment option when booking a hotel stay.
“We know travelers want to easily apply the value of points toward travel,” Aaron Price, SVP of global marketing for Expedia, explained. “As a result, this expanded partnership with Citi is a perfect reflection of our effort to make travel planning and booking more convenient by providing our customers choice beyond traditional payment methods.”
Expedia and Citi also offer consumers a co-branded travel credit card program designed for travelers to earn valuable Expedia+ points and other great travel perks.
