The international travel portal trivago.com has launched a new feature: users of the hotel search can now compare the exact rate descriptions for hotel bookings on trivago.This allows the user to see immediately on what terms he books his stay.
In addition to the prices of different booking partners travellers can check the exact rate description for a hotel room on the search result page of trivago, and not only at the partner’s site. The rate description states, whether breakfast is included, the booking can be cancelled short-term and whether a credit card is required. This information is unique in the area of meta search for hotels.
The following link shows an example of a price comparison of the Riverside Hotel in Prague on trivago:
At first glance a standard double room costs the same with all providers. But ehotel is the only provider who offers the room with breakfast included and thus has the best offer.
trivago’s hotel finder compares the prices of online booking partners like expedia, booking.com or ebookers for 285,000 hotels worldwide and always finds the best rates available. A variety of selection criteria allows the user to reduce the search results, for example by hotel category, the number of stars, or by room facilities. In addition visitors to trivago.com can find a hotel within a radius of 20 kilometers from the selected city, using the radius search function on the site. trivago’s active social networking community provides about 165,000 hotel reviews, 1.7 million photos and information on 58,000 tourist attractions which allow the user to find the ideal accommodation for their needs.
