    Anyone with cable can hardly have not noticed the absolute deluge of the same ad being repeated, repeated, repeated, on multiple channels by some hysterical siren ad nauseum demanding that we guess how many hotel rooms she's been laid in, err, hotel prices she's compared.

    Those of you tempted to try out this hotel booking service could do worse than to do a google on "trivago complaints" or similar. You'll easily find many horror stories that Trivago does not seem to have any interest in correcting (and this is after payments have been accepted). Admittedly, there is a smattering of positive messages, but these look suspiciously manufactured.

    Anyway, caveat emptor.



    Oh, and for those enquiring minds that just need to know the answer to how "many hotel prices have been compared" ... ... ... the answer is ZERO. They sub-contract the work.

    Trivago annoys me as the leaping tarts volume goes incredibly loud, I’m not deaf or interested

    Ahh, the joys of having no idea what you guys are on about. I can't stand the sound of TV at all so I never watch it unless hubby calls me to go & look at something on the news or something. I go look- out of duty & in the interests of a harmonious marriage :D

    I'm not a tv watcher either but have found Nat Geo at a low volume smoothes my afternoon nap
    That Trivago twat is the most annoying feature to be on tv in recent memory

    Must be a good ad cause you are thinking about it. They don' care if it pissed you off just so you rember the name. So job well done.

    Well I don’t wake up at night screaming”
    “Trivago”, but I can assure you it would be the last company I would use if looking for a hotel, so a grand irritating fail

    Yet by posting about them in here, you are still promoting the brand awareness... "no such thing as bad publicity" :D

    So if I smoke I won't be cool?
    How about if I use tampons, can I be an expert roller skater?

    Advertised product is like a gigolo's penis. Useless unless purchased.

    If prospectives do their due diligence (and remember the name, of course), Trivago will be going under before their ad budget runs out ... we hope.

    .
    Not sure but I thought Trivago is comparing the different booking sites (as Expedia, Booking, Traveloka, Agoda, ...) and then selecting and presenting the lowest price? So a bit like Skyscanner for flights. That’s at least how they position themselves in Western Europe. (I recently saw an ad on the local TV.)

    You can book on Trivago, but the comparison is sub-contracted.
