Is Expedia reliable

I would like to book an hotel for april (Fairmont Mont-Tremblant).
When I go to Tremblant.ca, no room is available.
When I go to Expedia.ca, they are availabe.
Can I trust Expedia?

Thanks

They are legit. But be on the safe side and always print out the confirmation.

I've used them many times but i ran into a problem once where the hotel didnt have my booking even though it was confirmedthrough expedia.

They allowed me to stay since I had the printed confirmation and the next day they found it.

I used it before and they are pretty good(found the lowest air fare) and good customer service. I booked a last minute flight to HK to take off the next day and everything is ready at the check in counter the next morning.

For what it is worth, book the Westin, much better than the Fairmont Tremblant. Literally a couple of minutes away from each other.

I didn't want to start a new thread, but I have some questions about Expedia:

- Do they issue e-tickets that you print off yourself?
- How do multiple/connecting flights work? Do they issue two tickets with one for each flight then or a total of four tickets for a round trip?
- Can you choose your seats with both connecting flights?

And unrelated to Expedia, but how do the baggage transfers work now with the new American rules? Do they automatically get sent to your connecting flight or would I now have to go to baggage claim and then get back in line for my connecting flight for check-in?

you just print off your itinery from expedia's website and bring it with you. dont even need a e-ticket.

thus, there is no need for multiple tickets at all, your expedia itinery will have the booking/confirmation number with each airline/trip. yes you choose seats if the airlines permits on all connecting flights.

so basically, just print out your expedia itinery and you are set.

if you depart directly to the US from a canadian gateway with US customs on d uty, your bags will be checked through to final destination since you go through US customs here already.

they're owned by microsoft.
they're pretty reliable and they aren't going to fold anytime soon.

i've used them for airfares and booking rentals. they're pretty good for both.

I always check Expedia, Travelocity and the airline sites. Seat availability and pricing is not always the same from the 3 sources. Expedia and Travelocity are better at giving you the real total ticket price up front, and of course they can offer combination flights with different airlines. Expedia is best at finding good connecting flights for multi-leg trips - that's a key weakness of Travelocity.

I did have a minor problem with an Expedia ticket one time when United Airlines cancelled their flight on me and I had to switch to a different United flight, but Expedia helped resolve it on the phone while I waited at the ticket counter, and I blame United Airlines and Air Canada more for that screwup than Expedia.

Booked from Montreal for a flight out of Burlington, VT to Orlando. No problems and saved over $100 for each of the seats. All on Expedia.ca
