"Find what you want for less" is the claim laid down by Expedia.co.uk and I'm always up for a challenge.(",) What is Expedia.co.uk (",)
Expedia.co.uk is a website used to book holidays, plan your travel, buy your tickets, choose a hotel, incorporate travel insurance and if your very lucky get a great last minute bargain. You essentially become your own travel agent.Expedia.co.uk was launched in 1998 and since this time their website has become of the most used for booking holidays on the internet, giving websites like lastminute.com and Opodo.co.uk a good run for their money.
(",) How do you use Expedia (",)By going to www.expedia.co.uk and within seconds (or minutes if your not on Broadband) you will become faced with a blue and yellow screen with a main task bar at the top of the page with various pieces of information. In the centre of the screen is what I call the Shortcut to sorting your holiday out and either side of the screen there will be tantalising deals
Along the top of the screen you will see - Home, Deals, Flights, Hotels, Cars, Holidays, Attractions & Services, insurance, Eurostar, Guides, Maps and Corporate Travel. All of which are designed to help you find that perfect holiday.*Home* - This Tab brings you back to where you started and that is the main Expedia Screen
*Deals* -This tab gives you the latest deals on Offer*Flights* - If you would prefer to just book a flight rather than a whole holiday, then this is the section for you,
*Hotels* - Got your flight but need a hotel to stay in? Click away this is the section you need. A lot of the hotels on Expedia do have virtual tours of everything, and whenever ive booked my hotel I have always done the virtual tour because it gives you an idea of what the hotel looks like, rather than a picture in a brochure which in reality turns out nothing like you thought.This is the basis of the Expedia website, each tab is self-explanatory, everything is set out very clearly for users to navigate their way around the website itself with no fuss. So if you are not used to the Internet, do not panic, Expedia is very user friendly.
In comparison to Opodo.co.uk, which I also looked at when booking my latest Las Vegas, trip and I found Opodo to be unhelpful and confusing when planning my holiday. I couldn't choose my hotel as easily as I could with Expedia and found myself back on the same page I started on numerous times after navigating my way around. Once I finally did manage to piece my holiday together bit by bit, rather than all at once with Expedia and it was £300 more expensive on Opodo.
I have now used Expedia twice to book my holidays, one of them was my flight to Las Vegas to get married and thankfully that all went according got plan so ive used them a second time to book a return trip to Las Vegas on June 21st for a whole week.
