How trivago works


trivago is a leading, global hotel metasearch where millions of travelers start their journey to find their ideal hotel online. How does it work? It's simple.

After travelers enter their hotel search criteria, our metasearch engine compares millions of hotel deals from hundreds of booking sites to present them with a clear selection of offers that perfectly match their requests.

When they select a hotel deal on trivago, we direct them to the advertiser of that deal; a third-party booking site or hotel website. That's where they complete the booking process.

By promoting your hotel and room rates to travelers worldwide, we're able to send you the qualified traffic that helps to increase your direct and indirect bookings. That's why, trivago is your most valuable marketing channel.
