If you have pre-booked a flight or hotel with Expedia.com that you can no longer use, you might lose out on a refund. You can sell your travel plans at TransferTravel.com with just a simple name change. The good news is that you can sell your travel plans at TransferTravel.com to someone who could be looking for exactly what you have. All it takes is a simple name change on your documents and you're ready to transfer your travel.
How Do I Cancel My Expedia Flight Booking?
To cancel your flight with Expedia you must log in to your personal account with Expedia.com and click on "My Trips". From there you can click on "My Trips" and choose your travel itinerary. To cancel, go to "Upcoming" and click "Manage Booking" on the flight, then "Cancel Flight". There are several low-cost airlines which may require you to cancel directly through their website. Expedia.com also offer help through their customer service portal if you have any questions.
Expedia.com let you cancel your flight within 24 hours of booking for free if you have made a mistake and wish to cancel quickly after purchasing your flight. However, it is important to note that some airlines which are booked through Expedia.com are non-refundable and do not allow you to cancel your flight for your money back. Some airlines who do not let you cancel will give you vouchers or "credit" to use at another time as compensation, but this is not always the case. Make sure to check with the individual airline for their policies. We've broken down some of the biggest airlines' cancellation policies over on our blog.
Some airlines which don't offer refunds will allow name changes so you can sell and transfer your booking to someone else. This means you can sell your tickets on TransferTravel.com and get some of your money back. Again, the name change policy will differ for each airline so you will need to check that this is possible for you. The standard fee is around £30-£35, although some companies will charge more.

Can I Cancel My Expedia Hotel Booking?
If you want to cancel the hotel booking that you have with Expedia, you need to sign into your personal account on their website. From there you can click on "My Trips" and click on your travel itinerary. In order to cancel, choose the hotel booking that you can't use anymore and click "Manage Booking" and then "Cancel Room".
Expedia has a great policy which means that if you book your hotel room with them which you then have to cancel, you don't have to pay Expedia a cancellation fee. Considering they're a travel aggregator, this is a good promise for you as it's one less cost you have to worry about.
However, this doesn't mean there is no fee at all as it is the individual hotel, not Expedia, who decide what the refund policy is. This means you might be able to cancel a room but it'll cost you a significant amount, if not a loss of everything you paid. If you cannot get a refund, you can change the name on the booking and sell it on TransferTravel.com to someone else looking for a great deal.
Change your hotel booking by signing into your account and viewing your "Upcoming" travels. From there in the hotel overview, you can select "Change" where you can amend your reservation. Some bookings cannot be changed because of the hotel's policy, meaning you have to cancel and rebook. This is rare though because you can change the name on 80% of hotel bookings at no cost through the hotel overview in your account.
