Expedia has stayed true to its technology roots in some respects. In 2014, it began accepting Bitcoin virtual currency as a method of payment. Later that year, Expedia partnered with Citigroup to form Expedia+, creating a card which customers can use to earn bonus points when they travel using Expedia services.
The slogan for Expedia is ‘Your Trip, Your Way’.
