Why register to claim your property’s trivago profile?

trivago compares accommodation deals from hundreds of online booking sites. Your property will already have a profile on trivago if you’re partnered with at least one of those booking sites. They’ve provided us with content for your property, including images, basic information, and rates.

I’ve registered my property on trivago, but it doesn’t appear to be available 

Accurate availability is a pivotal part of your property’s success on trivago. Here’s how your current availability is determined:

The rates that appear on trivago are advertisement-sponsored links paid for by the booking sites. Due to the nature of this paid-advertising model, booking sites continuously optimize their inventory and provide us with different hotels and properties for each market separately. That’s why your property may show rates on some localized websites but not on others.

Unfortunately, trivago doesn’t have any influence on this matter, because it’s at a booking site’s discretion whether to show a room rate or not.

What can I do if my property is available, but isn’t showing on trivago?

#1 Consider increasing the number of booking sites you collaborate with, especially with local online travel agencies, as this increases the possibility of being discovered on trivago.

#2 If you have a booking engine on your hotel website, consider advertising your website rates on your trivago profile with Rate Connect. When a traveler clicks on your rates, they’ll be taken directly to your hotel website to complete their (direct!) booking.

#3 Ensure your property’s profile is continuously updated with high-quality content.
