Today we are excited to announce a brand new way for travelers to access their Expedia trip itineraries and receive real-time updates about upcoming travel plans—all through the power of voice.
Available now, the Expedia skill for Alexa syncs with your Expedia account to access your upcoming reservations so all you have to do is simply ask Alexa for quick answers and important information about your trip.
Customers with Alexa-enabled devices, such as Amazon Echo and Amazon Dot, can use the Expedia skill to instantly hear details about their hotel and flight reservations, easily book a rental car, check Expedia+ rewards loyalty points balance, and more with just a few simple commands.
