Yes you have to book through their travel site and although the rates are comparable you pay an extra 13.95 or something like that for the service.

Re: Amex Travel 2x points question.

At first it seems like a good deal, but I find that you can get better rates using other travel websites. The 2X points isn't really worth it unless you are spending tons. I usually just go for the cheapest rate online.
