Expedia is today building on its exclusive partnership with Nectar by offering customers the chance to use their valuable points when booking a holiday online. Expedia is the UK’s largest online travel agent and the only travel company which offers customers the ability to collect and spend Nectar points with Expedia.co.uk. Starting from Monday 15th June, travellers can reduce the cost of an online booking by exchanging as little as 2,000 Nectar points, which equates to ?10 off the net booking value. An additional ?5 voucher can be collected for every 1,000 points earned until the customer has reached 20,000 points, after which additional points can be redeemed in increments of 5,000. Customers are free to spend as many points as they wish for travel on Expedia, providing they have sufficient balance.
“Expedia is always looking for ways to offer our customers the best travel value. We believe that our partnership with Nectar, the leading coalition programme in the UK, significantly enhances our consumer value proposition. By allowing customers to collect and spend their Nectar points on Expedia, they can treat themselves to a much deserved holiday for less,” said Sean Kell, Expedia’s senior vice president and general manager, global online customer marketing.
Whether it’s a week relaxing in the sun, an exotic getaway, a romantic weekend or just a flight to visit a friend, points are exchangeable against a variety of Expedia products. This includes standalone flights, a choice of over 80,000 Expedia Special Rate hotels and a selection of ‘create your own’ holiday packages such as:
? Flight and hotel
? Flight, hotel and car hire
? Eurostar and hotel
? Eurostar, hotel and car hire
“Our relationship with Expedia is important to us because it means we can deliver an offering to Nectar card holders that is second to none. By building on our existing successful partnership in this way, customers can now make great savings on their well-earned break and have the freedom either to continue collecting or start spending their points”, said Jan-Pieter Lips, managing director, Nectar.
