Travel booking on is supported by Expedia Group’s White Label Template technology, giving Walmart+ members access to more than 900,000 properties, 500+ airlines, 100+ car rental companies, and numerous activities around the world. This new offering will make shopping for travel a win-win for Walmart+ members as they begin getting Walmart Cash, previously Walmart Rewards, on all aspects of their vacation getaways.

The retail giant’s officials said they're bringing together the ultimate savings membership and vacation booking site to deliver a travel-focused benefit for Walmart+ members. Combined with their other benefits, including free delivery, streaming, and savings on fuel, they’re creating a membership that saves customers time and money, whether they’re at home or having fun at their favourite vacation destination.

How the new benefits plan works:

  • Walmart+ members will access travel through their member benefits hub in the app or;

  • Members can choose travel options like flights, hotels, vacation rentals, car rentals, packages and activities;

  • After the booking is confirmed, any Walmart Cash received will appear in the member’s Walmart wallet. Walmart Cash will become available 30 days after travel is completed and can be used on future Walmart purchases or cashed out in store.


Access to Expedia’s premium travel services

Commenting on this partnership, Expedia’s representatives stated that they’re happy to launch this collaboration with Walmart, a large US-based retailer, making planning, shopping, and booking travel a new and seamless part of Walmart’s shopping experience. Together, they’re connecting Walmart’s massive customer base with Expedia Group’s extensive array of travel supply partners from all around the world. The key highlight of this partnership is the integration of Expedia's AI-powered travel operating system, TravelOS, which will bring ongoing innovation and regular updates to enrich the traveller's experience.

Walmart+ members will also have access to Expedia Group’s end-to-end customer service, handling all their travel needs from start to finish. Whether via live agents or by leveraging the company’s self-serve capabilities, like their AI-powered Virtual Agent tool, Expedia Group’s services allow members to ask questions about their trip or make changes with ease.

Walmart+ is consistently evolving to deliver benefits to members. With the evolution of Walmart Rewards to Walmart Cash, users now have the added ability to cash-out in store. Over time, some of the components of Walmart Cash will expand to all customers, while additional ways to get Walmart Cash will remain exclusive to members, like Walmart+ Travel.
