But don’t stop there. Once you’ve got your hotel on trivago, help make it shine. trivago enjoys over 120 million monthly users searching for their ideal accommodations.  To get these travellers to view your hotel online, we suggest that you complete your property’s profile by updating  all of your hotel information.

Review your amenities, complete your locational details, and don’t forget to add your check-in and check-out particulars. Once all of your essentials are included in your listing, be sure to review your images. Are they accurate and attractive? Do they showcase your hotel in the best way possible? If not, remove lack-luster or out dated images and add high-quality ones instead.

Photographs that are 2000 pixels wide are best.

My hotel is on trivago but it doesn’t appear to be available

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

Any price displayed on our website by a booking site is an advertisement-sponsored link paid for by the travel agencies. Due to the nature of the paid advertising model, online travel agencies continuously optimise the hotel inventory provided to us for each market separately. From a technical perspective, we verify that the advertiser connection for your hotel does exist. Even though it exists, it may be enabled or disabled.

If your hotel does not appear to be available then your rates will not show for that particular date.

If it should show as available, and isn’t, we suggest that you do the following:

  • 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.
  • Consider connecting your hotel through our Direct Connect system. Hotels with a direct connection through trivago can have availability and rates from their own website added to their trivago profile. When a traveller clicks on your rates, they’ll be taken directly to your hotel website to complete their booking.
  • Ensure your hotel profile is continuously updated with high-quality photos, rich descriptions, and updated amenities using Hotel Manager, our free online platform for hoteliers.
