Now that we know a little more about Orbitz, let's start finding and booking a hotel room.

How to book hotels on Orbitz?

In this section, we'll show you how to find and book a hotel room on Orbitz step-by-step.

Step 1: Go to the Orbitz Website or App

If you're using the website, go to if you're using the app, download and install the Orbitz app on your device using App Store or Google Play Store. The app makes it a little easier to keep track of your travel plans while you're on the go, so you don't have to worry about losing any vital information. Your plans will be at your fingertips as long as you have your device with you. This can come in handy if you need to make any changes to your itinerary while you're away from home.

Step 2: Enter Your Travel Information

On the homepage, you'll see a search bar where you can enter your travel information. For example, if you're looking for hotels in New York City, simply type 'New York City into the search bar and hit the 'Enter' key. The website's search bar is user-friendly and guides you as you type. You will also need to enter Check-In and Check-Out dates and the number of rooms and travelers. Having this information ready before searching for hotels is always a good idea.

Step 3: Filter Your Results

After you enter your travel information and hit the 'Search' button, Orbitz will bring up a list of hotels that match your search criteria. At this point, you will see several listings for hotels in the area you're interested in, along with the nightly rate, the customer rating, etc. If you want to narrow your results even further, you can use Orbitz's filters to find exactly what you're looking for. For example, if you only want to see 4-star hotels under $200 per night, you can easily adjust the filters to reflect your preferences.

Step 4: Select the Perfect Hotel for You

Once you've found a few hotels that match your criteria, it's time to take a closer look at each listing and decide which one is the best fit for you. On each hotel listing, you'll find detailed information about the property when you click on it, including the number of stars, the nightly rate, the customer rating, a brief description, and more. You'll be able to see even more information about the hotel, such as what type of room you'll be staying in, the amenities included, the hotel's policies, and more.

Step 5: Book Your Hotel Room

Once you've decided on the perfect hotel for your needs, it's time to reserve your room. To do this, simply click on the 'Reserve' button on the listing page. From there, you'll be taken to a new page where you'll see several segments, such as an option to sign in, insurance opt-in, etc. We'll go through each of these segments so that you know what to expect.

Sign In:

If you already have an Orbitz account, simply enter your login information and click on the 'Sign In' button. If you don't have an account yet, don't worry; you can create one in one of the next segments. You should know that signing in is not mandatory; you can also continue as a guest. But we recommend signing in because, with every booking, you'll earn Orbucks, which is Orbitz's rewards program. You can use Orbucks to save on future bookings.

Enter Your Contact Information:

The next segment is where you'll enter your contact information. You'll need to provide your first and last name and phone number here. Orbitz will use this information to contact you in case there are any changes to your booking or if they need to reach you for any other reason.

Insurance Opt-In:

Orbitz offers optional travel insurance that you can purchase at an additional cost. If you're interested in buying travel insurance, simply select the 'Yes' option. You can see the amount of coverage and the cost of the insurance before you make your purchase.

Payment Information:

The next segment is where you'll enter your payment information. You can use a credit or debit card to pay for your hotel room. Orbitz also accepts PayPal if that's your preferred method of payment. Simply enter your payment information and move on to the next segment.

Enter Confirmation Email:

In this segment, you'll need to enter the email address where you want Orbitz to send your booking confirmation. Once you've entered your email address, click on the 'Continue' button. You should be careful when entering your email address because you may not receive your confirmation email if you make a mistake.

Create an Account:

Orbitz offers the option to create an account if you don't have one already. Creating an account is quick and easy, and we recommend doing it because, as we mentioned before, you'll earn Orbucks with every booking, which can be used to save on future bookings. To create an account, simply enter a secure password, and Orbitz will create an account for you with the email mentioned above and password.

Review Booking Policy:

The last segment is a review of the booking policy. Here, you'll find information about Orbitz's cancellation policy, changes to your booking, and more. Once satisfied with the policy and after reviewing all the booking details, click on the 'Complete Booking' button.

You've now successfully booked a hotel room on Orbitz! All that's left to do is enjoy your trip!
