After making an eligible booking, the anticipated amount of Expedia Rewards points to be awarded will be held in pending status.

Pending Expedia Rewards points are not available for redemption usage. Points will move from pending to available status after completion of travel, based on the time periods identified in the Posting/Reconciliation chart below. Once in available status, Expedia Rewards points are eligible to be used by the Member for redemption purposes. The amount of pending Expedia Rewards points calculated at the time of booking is based on the details of the itinerary booked and completed. Changes or cancellations to the booked itinerary may result in differences between the estimated amount of pending points calculated and the ultimate amount of points that post to the Member's Account for that itinerary. No Expedia Rewards points will be earned for change or cancellation fees imposed by suppliers.

 

Expedia reserves the right to rescind at any time any pending or available Expedia Rewards points that were earned or awarded for unused travel items. Expedia Rewards points will be rescinded in cases where a Member receives a refund, from either Expedia or a travel supplier or vendor. Points earned pursuant to fraudulent, sham or falsified information will be rescinded by Expedia.

 

By joining the Expedia Rewards rewards programme, you consent to allow Expedia to monitor all Member Account activity.

If you have conducted any fraudulent activity, Expedia reserves the right to take any necessary legal action and may have grounds to confiscate any rewards redeemed as a result of such activity. In addition, you may be liable for monetary losses to Expedia, including litigation costs and damages, and you will not be allowed to participate in Expedia Rewards in the future.
