Orbitz Reviews

Orbitz.com is one of the most leading US based travel booking site with substantial market-share in the industry.

The homepage offers you options to book Flight, Hotels, Packages, Cars, Cruises, Deals and even ‘Activities’ in different combinations. I personally liked the option to book ‘Activities’ as not many sites have this feature. The results of the ‘Activities’ differs based on destination city.







Cheap Hotels:

Homepage is primarily dominated by the hotel, vacation deals and information on different destinations. Here, you can find cheap hotel deals under Hotels, Packages and Vacation Rentals. Orbitz also offers ‘Insider Prices’ which can be in access of over 50%.  Page also offers Today’s’ Deal and This Week’s Top Deals, making it a very convenient starting point.

Cheap Flights:

You can find cheap flights with multiple options right away. There is is Today’s Deal and Flights Under $ 200 placed conveniently to start your searches. I think flights under $ 200 is a great option to explore plenty of options available at a budgeted price.

Flight booking has all the conventional options like One-way, Round-trip and Multi-city with 3 days before/after flexibility and stop preferences.

To give a spin, I tried a non-US sector (Bangkok-Tokyo return, direct flight) and results turned out pretty alright.

The results are presented in a ‘return journey’ format with ‘Filters’ clearly laid-out on the page.

Just above the flight matrix, you have ‘Change search’ option which opens a small window to modify your query without having to leave the current page; again a good feature. However, ‘Flexible Dates – Search +/- 3 days’ option actually disregard all the current results and take you back to the homepage to re-enter your search!! This is a downer.

The checkout procedure is the longest in comparison with other booking sites but, for all the good reasons. Checkout offers you multiple options to add hotels, cars, cell phone with roaming, SIM cards and activities etc. to your trip. Additionally, it also offers you Orbit Reward Cards with $50 credit at the end.

Overall a great site if you are booking from US.
