Money-back offer: Orbitz juices up its pledge

Back in May, we told you how Orbitz had extended its popular Price Assurance program for airfares to hotel bookings, offering automatic reimbursements. If someone else on Orbitz scores a better rate for the same room on the same travel date for less than what you paid, you automatically get a check for the difference (up to $500). No paperwork or other action by you required.

Now Orbitz is enhancing its offer with a low price guarantee. Besides the automatic rebate, you'll automatically recieve a promotion code redeemable for $50 off your next hotel or vacation package reservation. The online travel agency is also eliminating the 24-hour window to file a claim and giving the customer all the way until the property's cancellations fees apply to cash in.

Kudos to Orbitz for upping the ante on behalf of travelers. Visit to get the skinny.
