By participating in the Program, Members can earn Expedia Rewards points ("Expedia Rewards points" or "Points") for booking and completing eligible travel through Expedia.com.ph and redeem available Points for certain travel rewards, subject to these Terms and Conditions and the availability of eligible travel and reward items. In order to earn Expedia Rewards points, eligible travel must be completed. This means that you or other travelers booked on an itinerary using your rewards account ("Account"), must stay in the hotel booked, fly the booked flight itinerary, or use the ticket(s) or coupon(s) for the event/activity for which you booked and paid. The terms "you" and "your" throughout these Terms and Conditions refer to any Member and any customer eligible to participate in the Program.
Membership in Expedia Rewards is void if prohibited by law in the province/territory or country of the Member's residence, and subject to change as may be necessary to comply with such laws or regulations.
Expedia may at its sole discretion modify any of the Terms and Conditions governing the Program—including, but not limited to, the conditions for membership, the rules for earning and redeeming Expedia Rewards points, including the rates at which Expedia Rewards points may be earned or redeemed, the expiration policy for Points, the Elite Status Program, and the products and services on which Points may be earned and redeemed—at any time, even though these changes may affect your ability to use any Points or benefits you have already earned. In the event these Terms and Conditions are modified, we will provide you notice at least 30 days before the amendment comes into effect, by email to your email address provided to us ("Notice of Variation") and by posting the amended terms and conditions online. You may refuse the amendment and rescind, or cancel your participation in the Program without cost, penalty or cancellation indemnity, by sending us a notice to that effect no later than 30 days after your receipt of the Notice of Variation.
Expedia reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any Expedia Rewards Member it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Program or to be acting in violation of these Terms & Conditions or in a fraudulent or deceptive manner. Any attempt by any Expedia Rewards Member to undermine the legitimate operation of the Program may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Expedia reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by Expedia to enforce any of these Terms & Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Expedia makes no guarantees, warranties, or representations of any kind concerning the Program.
To the extent permissible under the applicable law, you agree to release Expedia and its affiliates and partners from all liability regarding the earning, redemption, and use of Expedia Rewards points, including any rewards that, after receipt, may be lost, stolen, or destroyed. Expedia suppliers are in no way affiliated with or responsible for Expedia Rewards Program administration.
The Program has no predetermined termination date and may continue until such time as Expedia decides to terminate the Program. Expedia may terminate the Program at any time. Upon termination, you will have ninety (90) days from the date Program termination is announced to use available Expedia Rewards points remaining in your Account. After that date, any Points will be forfeited without compensation.
Subject to the terms in relation to the Notice of Variation as set out above, your continued participation in the Program 30 days after your receipt of the Notice of Variation constitutes your acceptance of any changes to these Terms and Conditions. The most current version of these Terms and Conditions will be available on the website at www.expedia.com.ph/rewards and will supersede all previous versions of these Terms and Conditions.
If any provision of this Terms and Conditions becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of this Terms and Conditions.
You must have an account on Expedia.com.ph in order to enroll in Expedia Rewards. To earn Expedia Rewards points for a booking on Expedia, you must be an enrolled Member of Expedia Rewards, and be signed in to your Account prior to booking. No Points will be earned for bookings made on Expedia.com.ph when you are not signed in to your Account. If you enroll in Expedia Rewards after booking but before travel is completed, Points will not accrue on that booking.
As an enrolled Member of the Program, you will receive regular account servicing updates by email. Members may opt out of participation in the Program from the Rewards Activity page on Expedia.com.ph. Your ability to earn and redeem Expedia Rewards points will be suspended after you opt out. If you opt out of Program participation, you will no longer have access to your account statement information, no Expedia Rewards points will accumulate on future bookings, and any accumulated Expedia Rewards points will be unavailable for redemption. Any Points in your Account at the time of opting out will expire fourteen (14) days from your opt-out date.
Expedia awards Points only to the owner of the Account through which any eligible booking is made. You will earn also earn points for any additional travel for other individuals booked using your Account.
After making an eligible booking, the anticipated amount of Expedia Rewards points to be awarded will be held in pending status. As mentioned above, and for the sake of clarity, "completed travel" means that you or other travelers booked under your Account, must have completed the stay in the hotel booked, flown the flight itinerary, or used the ticket(s) or coupon(s) for the event/activity for which you booked and paid. Pending Expedia Rewards points are not available for redemption usage. Points will move from pending to available status after completion of travel, based on the time periods identified in the Posting/Reconciliation chart below. Once in available status, Expedia Rewards points are eligible to be used by the Member for redemption purposes. The amount of pending Expedia Rewards points calculated at the time of booking is based on the details of the itinerary booked and completed. Changes or cancellations to the booked itinerary may result in differences between the estimated amount of pending points calculated and the ultimate amount of points that post to the Member's Account for that itinerary. No Expedia Rewards points will be earned for change or cancellation fees imposed by suppliers.
Expedia reserves the right to rescind at any time any pending or available Expedia Rewards points that were earned or awarded for unused travel items. Expedia Rewards points will be rescinded in cases where a Member receives a refund, from either Expedia or a travel supplier or vendor. Points earned pursuant to fraudulent, sham or falsified information will be rescinded by Expedia.
By joining the Expedia Rewards program, you consent to allow Expedia to monitor all Member Account activity. If your Expedia Rewards Account shows signs of fraud, abuse, or suspicious activity, Expedia may close or freeze your Account immediately, and you may lose your accrued Expedia Rewards points. If you have conducted any fraudulent activity, Expedia reserves the right to take any necessary legal action and may have grounds to confiscate any rewards redeemed as a result of such activity. In addition, you may be liable for monetary losses to Expedia, including litigation costs and damages, and you will not be allowed to participate in Expedia Rewards in the future. Bookings discovered to be fraudulent will have their Expedia Rewards points rescinded, and the Account associated with such fraudulent bookings will be frozen from further Point earning or redemption activity. To contest freezing of an account or the rescinding of Expedia Rewards points, please contact Customer Support at http://faq.expedia.com.ph/contact.aspx.
If your Account does not represent the correct number of Expedia Rewards points that you should have been awarded as determined by Expedia, Expedia reserves the right to augment or decrement your Point balance. If you believe your Account has been the subject of any suspicious activity, please contact the Expedia Service Center immediately. If it is determined you have been the victim of a fraud, the Points you have earned may be transferred to a new Account.
