Reviews and Recommendations

24 Feb

Everyone has a little different expectation in mind when they are booking hotel accommodations wherever they are traveling. Some things are more important than others and some things we aren’t willing to compromise on. That’s why it’s beneficial to research and see what other visitors have commented regarding their experiences. TripAdvisor is a site that offers that. In fact, it’s the world’s largest travel site and offers over 75 million reviews to research.

TripAdvisor’s website offers many different things to assist in the travel coordinating process. You can take a look at reviews at a glance without having to read through the whole response, which makes it easy when you’re researching multiple locations. It also offers flight pricing with taxes and fees included, so you’re getting a realistic idea of how much you’ll actually be spending. And you can also save information on potential future trips to your profile and continue researching later. They also recently included another new feature offered on Facebook where you can see if your friends have traveled in the places you’re looking and see what they recommend.

The reason I like to use TripAdvisor, is I can go onto their site and create a profile and it will send information on places I’m planning to visit. This will help in deciding what time of year is best to travel and it also offers pricing on various vacation packages. This site makes it a great way to research and see exactly what people are saying about where you are traveling. The information other people provide you can be very valuable and can help with the things you aren’t willing to compromise. Writing reviews online aren’t just for disgruntled customers anymore, it’s for people like you and me.

If you haven’t written a review online, whether it was for a restaurant or a hotel, please go onto to and write your first review.
