TripConnect by TripAdvisor

TripConnect is a powerful way for hotels, inns, and B&Bs to cost effectively
generate bookings on the world's largest travel site - TripAdvisor.

What is TripConnect CPC by TripAdvisor?

Travelers can now quickly research and compare pricing and availability directly within TripAdvisor. Using a Cost-Per-Click (CPC) model, accommodation owners can compete for direct bookings and drive booking-ready visitors directly to your website’s booking page with no commission payable. 

If you want to drive more direct bookings, it’s vital to appear in these results, right where travelers go to make their booking decisions!

How does SiteMinder work with TripConnect?

The integration of SiteMinder’s TheBookingButton with TripConnect allows you to generate CPC campaigns on the fly. Simply place bids to appear in the price and availability search results which represents how much you’re willing to pay for a qualified lead. When booking-ready travelers click on your CPC ad in these results, they are taken directly to your hotel’s website to complete the transaction and will be charged for this click accordingly.
