Expedia Punishing Hotels With Resort Fees In Search Results
Hotels that charge resorts fees will now appear lower in search results on Expedia & Hotels.com. A big part of why hotels charge resort fees is that they don’t pay commission to the online travel agency (in this case Expedia) on these fees. This is a win for consumers (hopefully it puts pressure on hotels to either drop resort fees or allow them to be clearly included in pricing on comparison sites) and a win for Expedia.
