As Virtuoso travel advisors, we provide our clients with preferred hotel rates, outstanding travel amenities, complimentary upgrades, and more. If TripAdvisor is working for you, then keep using it. I’m suggesting that TripAdvisor doesn’t work anymore for the vast majority of users. As soon as a hurricane is named and starts to appear in news reports, travel advisors’ telephones and email inboxes light up with inquiries from clients.
Except the information on TripAdvisor is anything but honest and unbiased, and it’s only getting worse. Btw, no space in the word TripAdvisor. If you’ve only seen the good side of TripAdvisor, be prepared to swallow the red pill. For any travel packages or deals listed, TripAdvisor LLC does not guarantee any specific rates or prices.
Travel advisors use personal contacts to make reservations that aren’t available online or through typical booking systems. Those reviews have included actual useful information, such as a particular hotel being close to another business or attraction. Trip Advisor knows when listings are fake and they will penalize your business for this.
Hotels jostling for visibility can now buy their way to the top via a brand new TripAdvisor product called Sponsored Placements. For your convenience, TripAdvisor LLC calculates an average price for each hotel, which is based on the rates of available rooms obtained from our booking partners.
