TripAdvisor to let independent hotels get instant bookings via mobile
At some point between September and December, independent hotels will gain the ability to have travelers using TripAdvisor’s metasearch tool book directly with them via TripAdvisor’s mobile app and mobile Web interface.
Until then, the feature only works for desktop browsers.
Launched a year ago, TripAdvisor‘s TripConnect is a metasearch auction bidding tool for independent hotels and B&Bs.
Today TripAdvisor announced that it’s taking TripConnect to the next stage.
The move affects the more than 65,000 hotels and bed and breakfast providers who have in the past year gained connectivity to participate in hotel price comparison, or metasearch, on TripAdvisor.
