It’s the most wonderful time of the year – now is the time to let your potential guests know why they should book a stay at your property this holiday season! As a Business Listings subscriber, your direct contact information is posted on all of TripAdvisor’s 30 domains. But you can do even more to help increase traffic to your property page by posting a Special Offer. Your Special Offer will be displayed in high visibility placements on our sites, including your geo page and search results within TripAdvisor, as well as a special map view.
Room discounts tend to be the most popular Special Offers, but here are some other seasonable and creative Special Offers that we like :
Ready to create your Special Offer? It’s quick and easy, and you can choose from four customized options: Room Rate, Food & Beverage, Local Offers, and Packages. Once your offer is submitted, it will be live within 24 hours.
To get started, visit your TripAdvisor Management Center.

With almost a billion users from around the world, Facebook is a great place to showcase your TripAdvisor reviews and awards, and spread the word about your property far and wide. Adding a TripAdvisor widget to your Facebook business page makes it easy for prospective and loyal guests to read your property’s reviews. The same TripAdvisor widget that goes on your website can also be used on your businesses’ Facebook page.
Since Facebook launched Timeline for business pages, the process for adding a widget has changed a little. We have created a new step-by-step guide on how to share your TripAdvisor reviews with your Facebook fans that factors in timeline-related changes.

A breathtaking view, recently-renovated bathrooms, or a particularly memorable turndown service: guests want to hear about your property’s unique qualities. The interesting details or little extras that define an establishment are often what draw guests to choose one over another of comparable price and quality.
A great way to make sure you highlight your property’s best and most memorable features is to enter some descriptive information into the “Hotel amenities” section of your business’ page. Read more

We are excited to introduce an enhancement to our security measures on TripAdvisor, aimed at helping us prevent fraud and further protecting the site’s integrity for travelers and businesses alike. Beginning in the next few weeks, all business representatives on TripAdvisor will need to complete a new identity and business affiliation verification process. It’s straightforward, and we’re available to help if you have questions! Read more
We’ve addressed some of the questions that commonly come up in the Business forums around managing your account on TripAdvisor.
I’ve just discovered there are two listings for my property with slightly different names. How can I have them combined and all my reviews put under one listing?
If your property has been listed on TripAdvisor more than once, you can request to have the listings merged and all the reviews from the duplicate listing transferred across.
We’ve made some changes to how Business Listings information is displayed on your TripAdvisor page to give your direct contact information greater visibility. This new look, which moves contact information closer to the top of your listing and uses attention-getting icons, was launched last week to increase the prominence of Business Listings data.

We’ll continue to provide updates on new site features and functionality in this space so stay tuned!
In response to requests from the TripAdvisor community we recently changed our ‘Things to Do’ section of the site to make it easier for travelers to find the activities that interest them.
‘Things to do’ has been separated out into four tabs: Attractions, Tours, Nightlife and Shopping so for example, where in the past a business may have been ranked 23rd of all attractions, it should now be ranked higher up in its specific category. In destinations with fewer than 20 “Things to Do” listings we have left them as they were.
The new categories are organised as follows:
Attractions (in a fixed location)
- Landmarks/ Historic sites.
- Entertainment and Amusement
- Museums , zoos and aquariums
- Education sites and libraries
- Golf courses & Ski Areas
- Parks, gardens and nature
- Theater, art and performances
- Amusement/ theme parks/ arcades
- Religious Sites
- Factories, wineries, and breweries
- Geographic areas, like beaches, canyons, lakes
Tours & Water Sports
- Theater, art and performances
- Comedy Clubs
- Antique Shops
- Specialty Shops
- Art Galleries
- Factory Outlets
- Street/Flea Markets
