How To Connect to ExpediaFollow
Expedia’s brands attract more than 70 million web visitors each month. The integration between Expedia and Rezdy allows for all availability, bookings, and cancellations to be updated in real-time.

Enabling Expedia booking questions
Rezdy has the ability to capture customer information during the Expedia checkout process. By default, all Expedia customers are required to provide the lead traveller's name, phone number, and email address.
You also have the option to enable (for all travellers/participants) name, weight, height, pick-up/arrival location, and drop-off/departure location.
To find out how to enable these options, head on over to the Expedia Help Center .
Note: You will find all customer information provided by Expedia within the Rezdy booking.
Future changes to product or session structure
Once connected, it is highly recommended that you reach out to your Expedia Destination Manager directly prior to any changes to your product structure. Changing your product structure could possibly break the mapping and cause bookings to fail.
Changes include but not limited to:
- Adding/Removing/Updating ticket types (e.g. Adult, Child, Infant, etc.)
- Adding/Removing/Updating tour options (e.g. 9AM departure, 2PM departure, etc.)
- Updating availability type between Freesale & Limited availability
