What we do

You could search one booking site at a time. Or you could search hundreds.

trivago is a metasearch, which means that we are like the Google of hotel deals. When you type in your search criteria, we take all of this into account and comb through booking sites on the web to find and present you a clear, unbiased selection of hotel deals to choose from. As we accept no money from advertisements, we are not biased in any way. Our primary objective is to present our users comprehensive hotel information to get them the best deal they can find – and as quickly as possible.


How? A search takes one click, doesn't it? A lot happens in that moment, which our highly skilled team of developers work hard on every single day, and with very advanced technology. Our live search robots scan 259 booking sites at once – within seconds. They comb through hotel prices, images, descriptions and reviews in the blink of an eye and use intricate algorithms to identify and present you an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of deals – to help you find the ideal hotel for the best price every time.

It's not just about getting ahead. It's about getting involved.

School in Myanmar


In 2012, trivago worked together with Fly & Help to build a primary school in the town of Ywa Thit Gyi in Myanmar – where 126 children have learned to read, write and do math. Between March and August, three neighbouring communities united to build the school by hand. trivago provided all materials for the brick-and-timber construction, while school desks, blackboards and lumber were purchased from local, expert carpenters in order to conserve the existing forests in the region.

The area where the school was built is extremely rural and the livelihood of its inhabitants is supported primarily by agriculture. Now the children travel over an access bridge to one of three classrooms in their new school. At trivago, we pride ourselves in the hope that we have provided a solid foundation for a successful future for each of them.

School in Rwanda

The building of the second trivago school in Gikonko, Rwanda, has paved the way for 200 children to get a head-start in life with a good education. In the wake of the school reform "12 Years Basic Education," Ecole Primaire Byiza (Byiza Primary School) was chosen to be the Centre Scolaire (scholastic center) due to its central location, good reputation and excellent commitment and performance of the teachers. More and more students were being sent here to learn – without enough classrooms! With trivago’s help, that is no longer the issue. Thanks to our support, a new 2-storey school building with an additional four rooms are ready for use!

The town of Byiza is located in the Gikonko district with about 21,000 inhabitants and is roughly 25 kilometers from Butare. The area is predominantly agricultural – nonetheless, hunger and malnutrition of the locals are widespread.

The Fly & Help Foundation is a private organization that builds schools, kindergartens and orphanages. The institution's primary objective is to promote the education of poor and disadvantaged children, especially in the areas of Ghana, Rwanda, India, Indonesia and Brazil. The foundation distinguishes itself by ensuring that all donations go directly into projects and no money is deducted for administration.

Operation Christmas Child


It is often taken for granted that every child experiences a magical holiday season. Unfortunately, this is not the reality – and is why we pour a bit of trivago spirit into the winter holidays by taking part in Operation Christmas Child.

Every holiday season, trivago donates shoeboxes full of toys and sweets to poor children around the world. Each employee personally visits a local store to buy goodies and sweets for a little boy or girl. We then make our way to the office’s make-shift Santa’s workshop where wrapping paper, glue, ribbons and scissors await – to wrap the gifts ourselves. All boxes are then collected and distributed to needy children worldwide!

Organised by Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child operates around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine.
