TripAdvisor tests hotel metasearch service

As Tnooz reports, TripAdvisor confirmed this week that it is currently testing “new search functionality” for hotels, covering both desktop and mobile versions of the service.

The functionality mirrors many of the other hotel metasearch services around the web, with availability and prices for properties based on arrival and departure dates, and location.

Randomly selected users have been able to see the new platform in action over the course of the past two months, but there is no time-line as yet when it will be fully deployed and available to rest of the site’s massive user-base.

A string of filters are also included in the navigation, including price, property type, chain, as well as being able to drill down on the type of hotel it is most suited to.
