trivago Hotel deal comparison from over 250 booking sites - App Review



Do you ever feel like you are being stitched up over hotel prices? You might blame yourself for not having the time to trawl the Internet for the best rate, or lack the language skills to attempt talking a booking clerk into a better rate... this App might be the answer.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
You can easily start by comparing prices, maybe even (like me) check out a booking in the future that you have already made.

Enter a town and then your arrival and departure dates (this is straightforward, although the dates are not specifically labelled but, pretty obvious).

The chances are that you now have a truckload of options so go to the icon at the top left of the screen to access the filter settings. You can apply filters by stars, satisfaction, price, distance, type of lodging, hotel/room facilities. These can then de ordered by popularity, rating, price, or distance.

The map icon will allow you to visualise on a map, very handy for locating a hotel near to a particular are, without being aware of all the street names.

Once you have found what you are looking for, you can book directly from the provided link.

Cost
The App Costs $0.

When I ran a test comparing a booking, using the App would have saved me €123.44 for a 3 night stay, for the same hotel, same dates, same room type, and same payment option.

Indispensability
Well, I thought that I was a fairly savvy traveller... I'd try this at least once before you book your next hotel.

Dependability
If you have a 'favourite' booking site, you may or not use it again; this isn't a problem as such, provided you are getting a better rate.

Security
Until you start the booking process, the only information you are inputting is dates and preferences.

ACIDS Test Rating:

If you've got money to burn, don't use this App.
