With a whopping total ranking of 8.5 out of ten, Expedia scored high in the areas of destinations, value for money and advanced searches.

Expedia.com really does go above and beyond simply helping you book your flights and accommodations.

“Expedia is a giant in the online travel world and has been at the top of the flight booking category for months on online travel index DozenTravel.com. But online travel is always changing and other sites such as Kayak.com are really going to give Expedia.com a run for their money throughout 2010. It will be interesting to see which site comes out on top.
