Frequently asked questions

KAYAK Explorer is KAYAK’s very own loyalty program. By signing up and booking through the KAYAK mobile app, you can earn Explorer Points and then redeem those points for perks and rewards, like prepaid gift cards, special dining and travel discounts, and prepaid debit cards.

KAYAK Explorer is currently only available to KAYAK mobile app users in the United States. To get started, download the KAYAK app and follow the prompts to sign in and join KAYAK Explorer. You can also tap the Profile menu and find the sign-up button under the Loyalty and Rewards section. Note that a valid, US-based mobile phone number is required to join KAYAK Explorer.

Nope—KAYAK Explorer is FREE to join. All you need to do is download the KAYAK app and sign up.

Explorer Points are available on select hotel bookings on the KAYAK app. To start collecting, look for the symbol on hotel search results, or use the  Explorer Points quick sort to see results ranked by available Explorer Points. Explorer Points will be considered “earned” upon completion of the hotel stay for which they were collected. Once an eligible hotel stay is completed, all associated Explorer Points are then “verified” by the booking provider, which usually takes approximately 6-8 weeks. Until they are verified, Explorer Points will be listed as “processing” in your account.

You can redeem Explorer Points as soon as you reach the 10,000 verified point minimum threshold. Don’t worry—we’ll automatically notify you by email when you reach the threshold in case you miss it while you’re racking up points.
