WooDoo - Metasearch: Trivago©

What is it?

Trivago is an important international metasearcher. Through WooDoo technologies it is possible to activate a promotional campaign on Trivago. In this way your website will appear on Trivago too. In addition, the connection will allow you to integrate on WooDoo the reservations of the portal and to update prices, restrictions and availability, all automatically.

Costs and Business models

The cost on the WooDoo side is the same for both business models. For the cost on the Trivago side, we recommend that you ask Trivago directly. Here are the two business models to choose from:

  • Cost Per Acquisition (CPA): 1€ commission on WooDoo for each reservation coming from Trivago
  • Cost Per Click (CPC): 1€ commission on WooDoo for each reservation coming from Trivago

For both business models, you have two options to choose from:

  • Express Booking: the reservation process will take place on the interface of Trivago.
  • Fast Connect: the guest will be redirected to your WooDoo Online Reception in order to book.

Both the business model and the options must be enabled directly on your Trivago profile.

What to check before proceeding

  • Make sure, in your Trivago account, that WuBook is indicated as your Provider.
  • If you already have another service active on WooDoo (e.g. Channel Manager), then it is not necessary that the Booking Engine is ON. The important thing is that it is configured (images, descriptions, prices, etc).
  • Make sure that rooms, extras and special offers have names and descriptions translated. In this way, you can take full advantage of the visibility (at international level) provided by Trivago and convert as much as possible.
  • Your property information entered on Trivago must match perfectly with that entered on ZaK. You can find more details at point 3, "Business Information Control".

What to know before proceeding

  • If a reservation is cancelled, the 1€ commission on WooDoo is NOT cancelled.
  • When a reservation is cancelled, WooDoo sends the information to Trivago.
  • Trivago takes from ZaK also cancellation policies (only default ones, not those with custom text).

How to enable Trivago?

Let's see now the steps to proceed with the activation.

1. Subscription in Trivago

In WooDoo no configuration is needed: the activation is done fully on Trivago. You must create a profile on Trivago and indicate WuBook as your provider.

Then activate with Trivago one of the two business models (CPA or CPC) and one of the two options (Express Booking or Fast Connect).

2. Business information control

By default, we will send Trivago the information about your property that you entered in the following menu:

↳ Useful Link: Administration > Properties > Property Information

! ATTENTION: As mentioned above, the property information entered on Trivago must match perfectly with the information entered on WuBook in this page.

3. End

You have now correctly activated Trivago, all you have to do is wait!Once enabled the service, there is a technical time that Trivago needs to index the property (up to 15 days) and that does not depend on WooDoo.

However, if after 15 days you realize that you are still not visible on Trivago, you can contact our support team for a check. But first, please check all the information above under "What to check before proceeding".

How to disable Trivago?

As well as activation, deactivation is done directly with Trivago. It is not possible to do it from WooDoo.
