Once the customer has registered and activated the certified Booking Engine, he will be able to concentrate on the campaign. The main advantage with Trivago is the freedom to choose the countries where they would like to increase sales.
Their campaigns are always “CPC”, ie cost per click, allowing a freedom in budget management in accordance with the needs and possibilities of each type of structure.
Another advantage of this type of campaign is the growth of direct traffic on the website of the structure: when a customer decides to book will see the various prices and if clicked on that offered by the hotel will be directed to the official site, so these Direct clicks increase the ranking of the structure on other search engines and therefore visibility.
