Our Editor’s Review:
We love the destination guides on Orbitz, such as “Taste the Good Life…Your Guide to Food & Wine Vacations at Orbitz“. This is one of the great benefits of a large travel site, like Orbitz. The Orbitz Insider Podcasts are pretty awesome too. Currently, you can choose from about 16 major cites, but we hope they add more. They will tell you “how to glide past the bouncer at the hottest industry night in Vegas (without tipping)”, where to find a “Seattle hangout where beer is often cheaper than water“, and “the only place on earth to taste Twinkie Tiramisu“. Check this out before you hit your destination!
Orbitz has one of the best price guarantees in the travel business, with their “Price Assurance”. Simply put, if any Orbitz customer ends up booking the exact same hotel night or flight for less, they will give you “Orbucks” for the difference plus an additional 10%. Orbucks are hotel credits you can use on a future booking with Orbitz. Also, if you go out on your own and find a lower priced hotel or airfare on a competitors website, Orbitz will give you a whopping $50 credit.
