Traveller Reviews Valued More Than the Brand

by Traveleads | April 15, 2019 | Latest News On The Ground

In a recent study conducted by Expedia Group guest ratings and price are more influential than brand reputation when travellers book hotels.

Sites for e-commerce, catering, medical and legal services, nothing escapes customer opinions… It is now possible everywhere to submit or consult ratings in order to assess the “quality” of an establishment from a distance. So much so that 88% of Internet users rely on the comments published on the Internet before finalizing a purchase.

While the price remains the number one attribute, customers are increasingly choosing a well-rated hotel. However, it seems possible that the customer feedback criterion may overshadow the price factor in the short term since more and more e-consumers are willing to spend more for hotels with more positive feedback and much more than for high-end brands.

Customer reviews have become an essential and almost systematic way to validate a hotel. As a result, it allows independent establishments to easily compete with a hotel brand based on its e-reputation.

Here at Traveleads, we have built strong relationships with our suppliers in the hotel industry and currently offer access to over 400,000 hotels worldwide.
