MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Orbitz says some 800,000 payment cards used on the site back in 2016 could have been affected by a breach. Hackers may have accessed personal information for customers who used the site between January and June of 2016.

The company has launched a website for customers to find out whether their information might have been compromised.


Users enter their name and email address, then wait for a confirmation email.

Orbitz is offering affected customers a year of free credit monitoring.

In addition to the website, concerned customers can also call (855) 828-3959.
