Expedia is powering Walmart travel site

Walmart’s membership program, Walmart+, has launched a travel platform powered by Expedia Group.

Expedia’s technology is behind WalmartPlusTravel.com. On the site and on Walmart’s app, Walmart+ members can book air, car rentals, hotels, vacation rentals, air-hotel packages and tours/activities.

Bookings are eligible for Walmart Cash: 5% on hotels, vacation rentals and activities and 2% on flights. Users get a blended rate for cash back on air-hotel packages.

Cash will become available 30 days after travel is complete. It can be used for future purchases or cashed out in Walmart stores.

“We’re delighted to launch this collaboration with Walmart, America’s largest retailer, making planning, shopping and booking travel a new and seamless part of Walmart’s shopping experience,” said Ariane Gorin, president of Expedia for Business, said in a release. “Together, we’re connecting Walmart’s massive customer base with Expedia Group’s extensive array of travel supply partners from around the world.”

Walmart+ membership is $12.95 per month or $98 per year.
