TripAdvisor announces additions to its subscription products for businesses

Launches enhanced features for accommodations and introduces new subscription product for restaurants!

TripAdvisor® today announced additions to its subscription products, enabling accommodations and restaurants to attract, engage and influence customers. Developed to reflect the specific needs of accommodation and restaurant businesses, these new products allow subscribers to access industry-leading tools to help them capitalize on all the ways TripAdvisor drives value for their business, as well as harnessing the Network Effect of working with the world’s largest travel site.*

Accommodation businesses can now subscribe to Business Advantage, an enhanced set of features that empowers them to better market themselves, impact booking decisions, differentiate from competitors and measure and better build their online reputation. Additionally, the newly-released TripAdvisor Premium for Restaurants subscription product will give millions of restaurant businesses the opportunity to gain a competitive edge with exclusive access to powerful, subscriber-only features.


“Providing a business with the opportunity to improve its content and customize its presence on TripAdvisor helps partners better understand and engage with their customers,” said Robin Ingle, Senior Vice President, Global Sales, TripAdvisor. “Research shows that more proactive management of a business’s presence on TripAdvisor, combined with frequent interaction with the data and insights we provide to our subscriber partners in the Management Center, deepens engagement and drives increased revenue for a business.[1] We’ve designed these new subscription services to help our partners fully leverage the benefits that are possible when working with TripAdvisor.”


Recent studies indicated that accommodations and restaurants that engage with TripAdvisor see stronger performance in their business metrics, including increased customer satisfaction and even stronger revenue growth – each of which can be attributed to the Network Effect.  In simple terms, network effect occurs when a product or a service becomes more beneficial to its users as more people use it. In other words, it is a virtuous circle of growth where more and better reviews lead to more customers who then deliver more reviews.  Business Advantage and TripAdvisor Premium for Restaurants have been designed to help accommodations and restaurants attract, engage and influence their customers – effectively amplifying the virtuous circle and driving improved results.

Business Advantage Features

For accommodations, features available for Business Advantage subscribers include:

  • Favorite Reviews: The opportunity to inspire potential guests by showcasing a great recent customer review and labeling it as “Hotel’s Favorite Review” near the top of the accommodation’s property page.
  • Favorite Photos: Accommodations can highlight their best photos to inspire and motivate potential guests to choose them.
  • Cover Photos: Subscribers can present their properties the way they want potential guests to see them by selecting which photo to use as a cover to each one of their TripAdvisor albums.
  • Enhanced Analytics Suite: With extensive traveller, engagement, and competitor data, the new Analytics Suite empowers subscribers to make informed decisions about how to market to potential customers, enhance guest experiences and manage their online reputations.


These newfeatures are in addition to the classic features that were previously available to Business Listings subscribers, includingContact Details, Special Offers, Announcements and Mobile Click-to-Call.

“For the first time, 4.2 million restaurants on TripAdvisorcan have more creative control and improved customer insights to maximize the value of their listing on our sites and apps,”said Bertrand Jelensperger, senior vice president, TripAdvisor Restaurant. “We have listened to our partners andwe intend to delivera series of innovative tools that help businesses take full advantage of the world’s largest community of travellers (and diners) here at TripAdvisor.”


The Network Effect Benefits of Engaging with TripAdvisor


More than 280 reviews and opinions are added to TripAdvisor every minute, with more than 435 million total reviews and opinions published on the site globally. The TripAdvisor apps have been downloaded 370 million times. As for inventory, more than 10,000 businesses are added to its website and app every week with more than 6.8 million total businesses listedacross the globe. As content growth, usage and engagement continues to accelerate, businesses experience a significant network effect through their relationship with TripAdvisor. A recent study by Oxford University found that TripAdvisor influenced an astounding $478 billion USD in travel industry revenue in 2014.


“An enhanced business page on TripAdvisor, available through these new subscription services, builds a better net to capture the interests of travellers,” added Ingle. “That net, plus a great hotel stay or dining experience for travellers, leads to more positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Ultimately, we believe all of these attributes lead to increased bookings and reservations overtime as businesses make an investment in participating in this virtuous circle. It all starts with putting your best foot forward as a business with a heightened profile on TripAdvisor.”
