New Delhi, Mar 25 (ANI/Business Wire India): TripAdvisor, the world's most popular and largest travel community, today announced the launch of its "Top Values" Index. It is an easy way to sort the most popular hotels around the world to quickly find the hotels that are great values today.
"Travellers want to make the most of every rupee they are spending. The launch of the 'Top Values' Index on TripAdvisor will help travellers get more for their hard earned money, which is especially important in the current economic climate." said Sharat Dhall, Managing Director, TripAdvisor India.
"The 'Top Values' Index uniquely highlights hotels that are distinct values, based on up-to-date information, by sorting through the most popular hotels on TripAdvisor," added Dhall.
TripAdvisor is projecting a nearly 50 per cent increase in travellers talking about "deals" on its site in '09 versus '08.
To identify excellent value hotels, TripAdvisor constructed a proprietary algorithm that analyses the relationship between a hotel's quality and price - quality as determined by input from real travellers on TripAdvisor as well as third party content, such as star ratings.
TripAdvisor then showcases these properties as "Top Values," which are, on average, 5,096 INR per night or 31 per cent less expensive than all hotels listed on TripAdvisor. "Top Values" are updated daily to reflect the most recent prices and quality ratings.
Available on all TripAdvisor worldwide sites, "Top Values" is one of many new products and features TripAdvisor is rolling out in 2009 to help travellers plan and have the perfect trip, on any budget.
To access "Top Values," visit TripAdvisor hotel listing pages and click the tick box beside "Show TripAdvisor Top Values first." (ANI)
