Breaking News! - Orbitz Matches Expedia's Best Rate Guarantee with $50 Coupon!

Some great news! It seems Orbitz.com has now jumped on the BRG bandwagon with a new and improved Best Rate Guarantee - one that is nearly identical to those offered by Expedia and Travelocity! Orbitz will now be offering a $50 future travel coupon in addition to the usual price difference refund. With Orbitz's BRG, it appears you may not be limited to any particular number of claims per month, although that could change as they fine-tune things. Screenshots may also be allowed. More to come on this for sure!

Read the new Orbitz Low Price Guarantee terms and conditions and let us know your thoughts!

This is certainly good news. Is there any way of knowing yet whether the coupon is good for one hotel night or is only good on two nights like Travelocity?

It won't take much time to find out. When the first claims are approved, and coupons are received within the usual 7-10 business days, we should have questions like this answered.

i noted that the terms seem good, i appreciate a "no cancellation fee" as my work schedule can change at the drop of a hat. i appreciate the companies that offer a rate guarantee!

Can you use the $50 coupon on airfare?

According to the Orbitz Guarantee, the $50 discount coupon can be used on a "future hotel or vacation package booking".

Just got my first BRG claim approved from Orbitz. It took them less than an hour to respond back via email. Good service.
