It has recently been announced that TripAdvisor will have their Windows application pre-loaded onto millions of Windows 10 devices in 2016. The app will be available on all devices running Windows 10 including mobile, tablets and computers.
The new app will allow users to easily book accommodation, in particular via their smart phones.
“The new TripAdvisor Windows 10 app offers users a comprehensive resource to help them plan and book their trips,” said Rory Kenny, director of mobile partnerships, TripAdvisor. “Mobile continues to be a huge driver of traffic to TripAdvisor, in fact half of our traffic now comes via mobile. We are excited that Windows Phone users will now be able to plan, compare and book hotels, restaurants and attractions within the TripAdvisor app.”
The new app features TripAdvisor’s comprehensive booking tools, including the TripAdvisor instant booking platform, which allows travelers to easily compare and book accommodation.
The app is already available on IOS (Apple) and Android devices and has seen over 215 million downloads yet it isn’t pre loaded on these platforms. Just goes to show how popular the application really is.
So why are we telling you this?
Not only is TripAdvisor the most visited travel website, dominating the top spot in the UK, they are also making it very easy for visitors to their website to search, book and review accommodation.
This makes it essential for UK accommodation providers to actively manage their own listings on TripAdvisor. If you haven’t done so already, you can sign up to TripAdvisor free of charge and manage the information about your property that appears on there. You can also engage with customers on a regular basis leaving reviews about your establishment.
