Recommendations and reviews
Studies show that 89% of travelers take decision to book any service based on the reviews.
That fact brought Tripadvisor to the leader's position among travel platforms. Every hotel, restaurant, bar, or cafe wants to have that small sticker “Recommended on Tripadvisor” on their door. It’s like a quality mark in a world of tourism.
Why is it so popular? The platform solved the problem of both categories of users - those who leave feedbacks and those who read them.
Review writers like to share experience and to feel their importance while rating the place.
Feedback readers like to get recommendations before visiting new places, not to end up eating some tasteless overrated food.
Tips for developers: text reviews are good, but photo reviews are even better. Don’t forget to add this feature to develop your travel app.
Summing up, to be an app, every traveler would surely download, it has to be not only useful and smart but also well designed to make people come back to it again and again.
