Special Offers map view: Location, location, location…and deals
What are the two of the top priorities these days for guests seeking a hotel? Location and deals.
With TripAdvisor’s new Special Offers map view, potential guests get access to both—at the same time! This view lets travelers easily identify hotels that are running promotions in their desired location.
When guests first click on the ‘Map View’ for a particular destination, they only see the top 30 hotels based on the popularity index. If you are ranked below #30 in your area, you will not show up on this map.
This is where your Special Offer can help.
When you post a Special Offer, your hotel will be on the default map view for that destination when the consumer filters for ‘Special Offers’ — regardless of your ranking If your hotel is below #30 in the popularity index, you can gain instant visibility, which equates to more potential guests.
