Zak - Trivago©

WHAT IS IT?


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


COSTS


Trivago is still in beta stage, so at the moment it's free and you won't be charged. After the test, the cost will be that of one channel (depending on how many channels you have connected).


INFO and REQUIREMENTS BEFORE YOU START


  • You must already have an account on Trivago Business Studio. Make sure, in the Settings section, that WuBook is indicated as your Provider and that the option "Trivago Express Booking" is enabled. Actually Trivago in ZaK only supports the Express Booking, that is the possibility to book directly on Trivago's interface. This is why you can activate Trivago even if you are not using the ZaK Booking Engine.
