trivago Partners with TrustYou to Power Its Review Summaries
August 8, 2015 – trivago, the world’s largest hotel search with over 900,000 properties, has integrated TrustYou Meta-Reviews™ into its service. The merge brings travelers trusted review information in a succinct format, allowing users to quickly and easily find their ideal hotel.
trivago’s hotel search allows travelers to compare hotels from over 250 booking sites. Integrating TrustYou Meta-Reviews™ on trivago:
• Organizes and emphasizes most-searched property features including location, dining options, rooms, Wi-Fi and other amenities
• Gives travelers short descriptions based on travel reviews, such as “Guests say this hotel ’is ideal for families.’”
• Offers users a visual summary of verified ratings, available in more than 30 languages
“Travelers’ opinions are a top influencer for booking decisions. It is essential for the travel industry to display trusted reviews in a way that is quick and easy for travelers to understand, without having to read hundreds of reviews themselves. trivago integrating our Meta-Reviews™ API is an ideal example of how to do this,” says Benjamin Jost, CEO and Co-Founder of TrustYou.
“We want every user on trivago to be able to search and find the hotel that fits best into their ideal travel experience. By bringing TrustYou reviews onboard, we are not only improving the search experience, but also helping travelers decipher what was once a complex amount of information in seconds,” says trivago Spokesperson, Sydney Burdick.
