MUCH MORE THAN A TRIVIAL HOTEL DEALS FINDER.

Trivago is a solid alternative to Airbnb. We mainly use it as a complimentary option if the house-sharing market is dry in a particular location, but for anyone who prefers the to be pampered in a homely hotel, Trivago is the app to beat. This service focuses more on the commercial accommodation side of things, but instead of aligning itself with a specific set of vendors, this app pools results from a number of different sites to find you the very best deals. Trawling the back-ends of sites like wotif.com, booking.com and Expedia to name a few, Trivago amasses the best deals from these various locations and lists them in one easily searchable and nicely ordered place. After adding the basic location, date, rooms and people particulars, the app will let you further filter by price, star rating or distance from the CBD, to make sure you’re only looking at places you definitely want. Trivago often has top rated hotels listed with savings of between 20% and 50%, giving you both the widest range of hotels and some of the best available prices. For those looking for the hotel experience, look no further than this service.
