People looking for cheap hotels often turn to the Trivago website. Trivago started out as a German website, but is now owned by Expedia, which puts Trivago into a bit of a conflict of interest. Trivago is supposed to be a independent hotel comparison tool, but it’s owner, Expedia Group, also owns a number of the hotel booking sites listed on Trivago (for instance Hotels.com, Expedia, Venere etc). But let’s put that aside for now and look at how to get cheap hotels.
When you do a search for a hotel on Trivago, it compares the prices offered on the hotel sites, like Hyatt.com versus the prices offered on the hotel booking sites like Hotels.com, Booking.com etc. I’ve been doing some research on Trivago to see how the pricing on a hotel website, like hyatt.com, compares to the hotel booking sites on Trivago. Let’s look at the results to see where to get cheap hotels.
