The past few years have changed the way we holiday. This is especially true for hotel booking. Earlier, we used to go to a travel agent to check the availability of hotels. But now, everything can be booked with just one click.
When it comes to hotel booking, there are a ton of apps and platforms that will help you find the best room all around the world. However, the case with trivago is slightly different. Trivago lets users compare the same room/suite on different platforms and find the lowest prices quickly and easily.
Founded in 2005, Trivago is the first hotel search engine with more than one million hotels and 200 booking sites worldwide to compare prices. Right from hotels and motels to holiday apartments, users can compare prices of all the leading platforms including Hotels.com, Booking.com, and Expedia.
Developing an app like Trivago takes detailed planning. A decade ago, it was all about travel agents, but now, everything has changed. Below is the feature list that you should focus on to build an app like Trivago.
