The oddball part to Expedia is that your Gmail address can show up in their emailing lists and the emailing lists of anyone they share information with. That is, even without the direct use of their website(s)/services. Yes, there are various ways to unsubscribe (which you should try first!) and there is always the chance that the messages are something you might have wanted. Unfortunately, unsubscribing to these emails will definitely provide them with your definite email address in the case of “close match” spamming tactics.
- Install Block Sender for Gmail by clicking the “Install” button found in the upper right-hand corner of this site. The installation won’t take long. Open Gmail when it is done.
- After signing up for a Block Sender account and linking your Gmail account to Block Sender, open the unwanted email from Expedia, and click the "Block" button on the messages toolbar.
- Select the "Emails from this sender" option.
Once this is done, you will no longer receive emails from that Expedia email account. If you ever decide you want to start receiving their emails again you can simply unblock the email.
And just we said with Booking.com, Expedia does send legitimate emails, you may want to try a different approach and instead block their ad/offer emails using phrase blocking. This would then allow you to receive their legitimate emails as well.
