Everyone appears to travel these days, frequently. With the advent of budget airlines, it is easy for anyone who can save and book last minute for a quick trip away. It is easy to find and book a budget hotel and lodging and you're set for your trip.

How do you keep track of everything, from the initial search through to the date you travel, especially if you need to make a change to your booking? Expedia is an option if you’re looking for a one-stop app to manage your travel.

Expedia provides fare and reservations to any destination in the world. It is one of the oldest booking sites on the web and we’ve been using it for as long as we can remember. They make it very easy for you to search and find prices for your flight, car hire, and lodging when you’re planning a trip. It is also fairly easy to make changes when on the road from your app.

One of the more unique features of Expedia is the "Scratchpad". This allows you to save your notes, on your travel searches and also if you want to keep track of a couple of routes, you will be able to watch prices rise and fall and it will show you when it is a good time to buy. When you access the tool, you will see the prices for the most searched trips you’ve put in and you can easily apply different dates to get updated prices.

Another great feature Expedia’s app is that it offers mobile-exclusive hotel deals. Once you’ve got this booked you can view all your upcoming trip details from your smartphone. Additionally, you can also get tickets for tours, shows, and theme parks. Finally, if you’re in to booking last minute you can book car hire from as little as 30 minutes in advance, so if you have a last-minute travel change you’ll be able to do so.

Expedia also enables you to earn points for every booking, so you can obtain money off future bookings.

Verdict

Overall a great app to manage all your bookings, but like most third-party providers, if you run into trouble after booking it will be difficult to resolve through Expedia.
