TripAdvisor is one of the most useful resources for travel because of how many reviews it has for accommodations all over the world. In this article, we’re going to flip the script and review TripAdvisor. If you need to know whether using TripAdvisor will be helpful to your travel planning, read our breakdown of the pros and cons of the travel information website below:
TripAdvisor.com is a great resource for travel, and can help any user make more educated decisions prior to booking their accommodations. With the website's many reviews, photos, and traveller experiences, you can get a much more detailed feel for your accommodations before you get there. Never again will you be disappointed by a resort because it was greatly misrepresented on their website. Mold and mildew in your hotel room shower? No way; the person that stayed at that hotel before you warned you about it.
Though there is much to be learned, you should always exercise caution when reading reviews and stories. Keep in mind that anyone can post a review – including property owners disguised as guests. Ensure that you read as many reviews as possible, and be aware of the possible dangers of using travel and booking websites.
