    I've never used Expedia before but their prices seem to be the best for me at the moment.

    Planning a trip in the coming months and was wondering if I pay be credit card, will I face an additional charge as opposed to if I used a debit card.

    Also trip states non refundable so I take it once I pay there's no backing out. Appreciate any advice.

    Cheers for the reply. Also notice ebookers have identical prices so not sure which one to use.

    Expedia Topcashback 5%
    Expedia 200 Nectar Points
    Ebookers Topcashback 5.5%

    Question is, do I save money and go with the non refundable Expedia or go with the more expensive airline and hotel booking which is refundable.

    You can get the nectar points as well as the topcashback, just make sure you enter your nectar details when prompted on Expedia rather than going through the nectar website. Check quidco cashback too as it seems to alternate between quidco and topcashback as to which has the best cashback rate.

    If you think there is a reasonable chance you may want to change your plans then go for the refundable option.
    If you are sure the trio will go ahead, bar illness or emergency, that's what travel insurance is for so go for the cheaper option.

    Went with ebookers in the end for that extra 0.5% Topcashback. Didn't see anywhere I could put in nectar card number,maybe that's expedia only. No mention of ATOL protection even though I booked Flight and Hotel.
