COVID-19 Database of Worldwide Travel Guidelines Now Available To All trivago Travelers

Users can search for updated information on their travel destinations

DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY July 21, 2020 – As some regions of the world begin to relax travel restrictions while others impose new quarantines, trivago N.V. (NASDAQ: TRVG) announced the launch of its new COVID-19 database is now available for travelers.  The database  aggregates the most updated information on restrictions for travelers into a single, consolidated source.

Travelers and businesses can now access the free database for up-to-date details including any restrictions on entry, social distancing rules, the use of personal protective equipment in accommodations, and open activities and businesses at the destination. Users simply select the country and region they are looking to visit, and the platform returns details on whether the location is open for domestic and/or international travel and the length of quarantine restrictions, if any. The resulting information also includes the status for hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants, bars, night clubs, museums and other events at the location. When travelers look to book accommodations on the trivago website, they will see a banner at the top of the page linking them to the COVID database.  For example, www.trivago.de/corona or www.trivago.com/corona

“Due to the massive challenges brought on by the global pandemic, today’s travelers face several important questions before booking vacations, especially as restrictions vary widely depending on jurisdiction. This database provides the transparency and detailed information they need in one place, without having to search through numerous websites and other sources in order to make their travel decisions,” explained Axel Hefer, CEO trivago.

The European COVID-19 Travel Alliance, which includes trivago, gathers the source materials for the database from reputable government sources for each country and region. This initiative supports local tourism industries, providing a resource for travelers and travel institutions to pass along the information to their customers online and through mobile applications.
