Refine your travel marketing strategy with TravelAds opportunities and insights 

Our TravelAds Sponsored Listings are proven to increase visibility and drive room demand and revenue, and we’re making it easier to optimize your TravelAds campaigns. Personalized and actionable data-backed opportunities and insights are now available in the TravelAds portal to help you bolster your advertising strategy and drive incremental room nights. 

This automated, self-service feature allows you to quickly review and tailor your campaigns to improve performance, whether you need to change your bid amount to be more competitive or increase your budget to keep your ad running against competing properties.  

Engage our valuable travel rewards members with advertiser funded loyalty 

One Key™ rewards travelers for booking on Expedia,, and Vrbo, and members get the freedom to earn and redeem awards on every eligible part of the trip experience. Our new advertiser funded loyalty product provides opportunities for more partners, including destination marketers, to engage and attract One Key members.  

As a destination marketer, you can drive more bookings to your destination by funding bonus OneKeyCash for travelers making lodging bookings that they can spend on future trips. One Key members are the high-value travelers you want — they book twice as often, spend more, stay longer, and cancel less — so incentivizing them can drive value for you and other travel businesses at our destination.* Advertiser funded loyalty can also help improve traveler sentiment and build brand awareness for your destination, while supporting your overall travel advertising strategy.  

Build brand affinity and showcase multiple properties with our new featured brand carousel 

Our full suite of advertising products has a solution for every objective and budget, and we’ve launched a brand carousel for hotel partners. This carousel ad on the hotel search results page allows you to build brand affinity by showcasing multiple properties based on travelers’ search criteria.  

The carousel placement spotlights a minimum of three properties — and up to 10 properties — for any chain in a specific city or metropolitan area. Carousels feature your existing hotel images, your brand’s logo, custom ad copy, and a button that directs travelers to a filtered page of all your properties in the searched area. Travelers can also click on a specific property featured in the carousel to visit the individual property detail page. 

This dynamic ad format makes it easier than ever for travelers to find your property as they search for, explore, and compare relevant brands. At the same time, you can increase visibility in the marketplace, build brand affinity and traveler loyalty for your chain, and drive conversion. 

These new products join our existing suite of advertising solutions as part of our travel media network that help advertisers connect with the more than 10 million daily visitors that comprise our global traveler audience throughout every phase of their buying journey.** Whether you’re looking to drive brand awareness, fill rooms, bring travelers to your destination, or have a different specific focus for your travel marketing goals, contact us today to get started and create your own customized campaign using our wide variety of advertising solutions.
