Search more than 200 booking sites at once
Our search technology is the key to our success. From the very beginning, we here at trivago understood the need for a completely new approach to the hotel search system, which was not covered by traditional search engines.
With prices changing every minute and availability varying from day to day, it's not possible to send out page crawlers once a month, crunch data in a big data center, and present static results to users.
trivago's live search scans more than a hundred different booking sites for information like reviews, images, descriptions and, of course, prices within seconds. With this strategy, we not only give the most comprehensive overview about the quality of a hotel, but continuously discover price differences for the same hotels and identical rooms.
By sending our search robots to local booking sites across the globe, we give consumers access to outstanding prices they never would have found without using trivago.
With close to a million searches a day, trivago classifies, structures and compares roughly 5 billion hotel deals a day (we'll do the math for you - more than a trillion a year). We are always looking for the best deal for you.
