In July 2001, USA Networks, Inc. bought Expedia from Microsoft.
In December 2010, listings for AMR Corporation, the parent company of American Airlines and American Eagle Airlines, were removed from Expedia's site. The decision resulted from a dispute over the degree of access to the site's customers. AMR reversed its decision in April 2011, allowing tickets to once again be sold through the aggregate site.
In June 2014, Expedia started accepting bitcoins.
In 2015, the company announced it would be moving its headquarters to Seattle. The relocation to Seattle is currently scheduled for 2019.
