TripAdvisor's Metasearch To Power Hotel Price Comparison On Bing

Stocks in this article: TRIP

By integrating directly into Bing Smart Search, the new TripAdvisor app will now show up as a result for relevant travel-related searches. Additionally, when you search in Windows 8.1, content, such as hotel ratings and reviews from within the TripAdvisor app, is presented within results to give people an at-a-glance view of what's available when they open the app itself. With just a single tap or click, consumers will then have instant access to the TripAdvisor app's content and features, including its Hotel Price Comparison search tool. 

Launched in June 2013, TripAdvisor's all-in-one Hotel Price Comparison search is the first to combine real-time pricing and availability with the more than 125 million original reviews and opinions of TripAdvisor travellers. The tool displays an easy-to-read layout of pricing and availability from multiple booking partners in one view.

Notes to editor
