Revamped review platform for hotels
Expedia.co.nz launches revamped review platform for hotels
Auckland, 19 December 2011 – The world’s largest online travel company, Expedia.co.nz, has revamped its hotel review platform to ‘Expedia Verified Reviews’, now offering the most comprehensive pool of traveller reviews and new filtering capabilities to find the best hotel deals.
The platform will utilize reviews from sisters companies within the Expedia Inc. brand including Hotels.com, Venere and Egencia. The slick new interface for viewing reviews on the Expedia.co.nz hotel infosite will include:
written for a particular audience
• Limitless customer-provided traveller types such as: “This review written for Adrenaline Junkies!” or “This review written for Pet Lovers”
• The ability to sort by guest rating, date submitted and language
• User submitted photos in addition to the hotel’s submitted photos.
Expedia Verified Reviews will also feature a streamlined process for submitting reviews and photos for sharing.
Amee Evans, Marketing and Communications Manager, Expedia Australia and New Zealand, said: “As the world’s largest online travel company, we are able to offer our customers more depth to the hotel review platform. Expedia.co.nz reviews are already written by bonafide travellers who have stayed at the hotels. By offering revamped filtering capabilities, Expedia Verified Reviews will offer a far more in-depth search to find the perfect hotel.”
The reviews will integrate social media with the ability to share reviews via Expedia.co.nz’s Facebook page. Customers can also ‘thank the reviewer’. Expedia Verified Reviews is the first step in a set of planned social communication and tools that will allow customers to easily search for that perfect hotel for their holiday.
