TripAdvisor adds videos

February 8, 2007

Everybodies favourite travel review website TripAdvisor has now added a feature to allow users to upload videos of their trips, hotels and anything else of relevance. A great new addition to the site, you can be sure this will see all sorts of videos of damp rooms, poor hygiene and awful food.

Joking aside this adds a really good new dimension to the world of travel reviews. While it’s possible to view videos on holiday websites, they are obviously created with the idea of selling the trip to the customer so show the best aspects of a hotel. The content that gets uploaded to TripAdvisor will be a warts and all expose of the best and worst aspects of your destination. Really useful for consumers and a potential headache for tour operators and hoteliers alike!
