Booking travel with Chase Ultimate Rewards just got better after it was announced that Chase has partnered with Expedia to run their Ultimate Rewards travel portal. The move is excellent news for Chase cardholders since Expedia group also owns Travelocity, Orbitz and Hotwire.com travel search engines, which should result in many more options. The move will double the inventory available to cardholders, and will include:
- Access to bookings at over 270,000 hotels worldwide
- Access to flights on over 250 airlines
- Access to Expedia’s travel deals
- Improved breakdown of costs, fees, and taxes when making a reservation
- The ability to make redemptions with points plus cash payments
This is a great move by Chase and improves the value of Ultimate Rewards points, despite the loss of Korean Air as a transfer partner. Don’t get too excited about the new Chase site, since it will not come online for all cards at the same time. Freedom cards now have access to the new site; however, it will be rolled out to holders of other Chase cards over the next few months.
