Where this comes into play is if you need to change a booking, with expedia you call there call centre which is off shore, with expedia you call the hotel direct. Well, Orbitz and Travelocity are part of Expedia and use the same database, and while they turned back a large number of results, they tilted more to the higher end of the price spectrum.
For Hualien, I used booking.
Well, the complete opposite of the previous results. TravelPony was the winner in the US and for higher-class hotels, and Expedia dominated London and Paris, while Priceline was great for 2-star hotels and Hotwire for 3-star hotels. Pick-up date. Thank you for sharing. This happened to me in Kenting, Taiwan and have since cross referenced from time to time to confirm the practice is widespread.
