While TripAdvisor is the largest global travel web site – we are a brand that we say is “well known but not known well.”  That is, while everyone knows our name they do not always know all the things we offer.  In addition to reading reviews and opinions, travelers can use TripAdvisor to search hotel prices, find and book things to do, get flight prices and find their favorite restaurants. 

This November, TripAdvisor launched an exciting new experience that will transform travel again by allowing consumers to effortlessly discover, save and share great recommendations when planning a trip. Beyond enjoying more than 702 million reviews and opinions, travelers can now get useful and relevant advice from the people and experts they trust.  Travelers now have access to helpful and inspirational videos, photos, articles and guides from friends and family, as well as from over a thousand brands, publishers, and influencers including National Geographic, Condé Nast Traveler, and Travel Channel. A new feature called “Trips” enables travelers to collaborate with others by saving, organizing, sharing and creating lists or in-depth guides highlighting their favorite hotels, restaurants, experiences in a particular destination.
