Walmart and Expedia Group announced a new partnership that
will benefit Walmart+ members booking travel.

Walmart+ members can now book getaways through WalmartPlusTravel.com
and get Walmart Cash. The website is powered by Expedia Group’s White Label
Template technology, giving members access to more than 900,000 properties, 500
airlines, 100 car rental companies and thousands of activities around the
world.

Walmart+ members will receive five percent Walmart Cash on
hotels, vacation rentals, car rentals and activities bookings, as well as two
percent Walmart Cash on all flights and a blended rate of Walmart Cash on
vacation packages.

“We’re bringing together the ultimate savings membership and
vacation booking site to deliver a first-ever travel-focused benefit for
Walmart+ members,” Walmart+ senior vice president Venessa Yates said.

“Combined with our other benefits – including free delivery,
streaming and savings on fuel – we’re creating a membership that saves
customers time and money, whether they’re at home or having fun at their
favorite vacation destination,” Yates continued.

As part of the new offering, Walmart+ members will also have
access to Expedia Group’s end-to-end customer service, including live agents and
self-serve capabilities, like their A.I.-powered Virtual Agent tool.

To make it easier for potential members, Walmart explained
how it works:

—Easy to find: Walmart+ members will access travel
through their member benefits hub in the app or WalmartPlusTravel.com.

—Easy to book: Members can choose travel options like
flights, hotels, vacation rentals, car rentals, packages and activities.

—Easy to earn: 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.
