AVUXI, the creators of the TopPlace™ location insights, has just announced the expansion of their presence on KAYAK, the world’s leading travel search engine, with a renewed two-year deal.
KAYAK, which searches hundreds of other travel sites to give people the information they need to make their travel plans, will now display new TopPlace™ insights and location scores in its hotel search. AVUXI’s mission is to save travelers’ time while making the right choice when booking a hotel.
The partnership will expand to other brands like momondo and Mundi, while continuing to provide KAYAK users with verified location information and new brief summaries, so that travelers can easily, and confidently, choose the right hotel, in the best location, for the best price.
By integrating TopPlace location scores and heat maps, KAYAK displays detailed location insights for hotels, based on social media signals from travelers and locals across the globe. The heat maps and location scores help KAYAK users identify the most suitable areas in a city and how well a hotel or apartment is located for activities such as eating, shopping, sightseeing or nightlife.
“Travelers want to feel certain that they are booking a hotel in the most convenient location for their needs. TopPlace insights provide knowledge about how good a location is in any city worldwide. Because we have analyzed billions of social media signals, such as blog entries, photos, reviews, likes, check-ins and more, we can accurately show and tell the user what any given location is like. This kind of information is crucial to quickly understand an essential criteria like location, when booking any given hotel, so that travelers can save time, stay on site and book confidently,”
