If you’re attempting to book a trip cheaply, you may look to Hotwire or Priceline … but Walmart? While travelers have been able to book trips through membership clubs like Costco for years, Walmart recently joined the array of retailers selling you a vacation.
In order to book travel through Walmart, travelers must be a member of Walmart+. From there, they’re able to book trips through WalmartPlusTravel.com. The booking platform even has a rewards program of sorts, with members earning a percentage of Walmart Cash on hotel stays, vacation rentals, car rentals, vacation packages and travel activities.
The new platform is made possible via a partnership with Expedia. As such, travelers can use the platform to book travel with more than 900,000 properties, 500-plus airlines and 100-plus car rental agencies. Customer service is provided via Expedia, as well.
“We’re bringing together the ultimate savings membership and vacation booking site to deliver a first-ever, travel-focused benefit for Walmart+ members,” said Venessa Yates, senior vice president and general manager, Walmart+. “Combined with our other benefits — including free delivery, streaming and savings on fuel — we’re creating a membership that saves customers time and money, whether they’re at home or having fun at their favorite vacation destination.”

Whether it’s a visitor climbing to the top of the temple at Chichen Itza or tourists scratching their name on the wall of Rome’s Colosseum, it seems humans are always leaving their mark on the places they visit.
