How to list a travel agency or tour operator in TripAdvisor?

Do you want to add a travel agency or tour operator company in TripAdvisor? Read our tips to get your travel agency listed in TripAdvisor.

TripAdvisor is the most popular travel booking website in India. A lot of resorts, hotels and homestays depend wholly on this online booking website for their business. Even though TripAdvisor is more of an accommodation listing and review website, they do list travel agencies and tour operators as well. However, it is a bit tricky to get your travel agency listed on TripAdvisor since their "Add New Listing" page doesn't directly show how to add a travel agency to their directory.

Hire a Digital Marketing Agency for your travel agency

If you are not familiar with working with online booking websites, it is better to hire a digital marketing agency to handle the same. They will have prior experience in working with online booking websites like TripAdvisor and can help you submit your travel agency to TripAdvisor in a professional manner. Instead of you spending a lot of time trying to figure out the rules and conditions, you can hand over that task to the digital marketing agency.

We do recommend SpiderWorks Digital Marketing Agency, which is specializing in digital marketing for hospitality business.

The "Travel Agency" is not listed as an option there. But if you read the fine print, you will learn that you can submit your travel agency if it meets certain criteria.

A travel company is eligible to be accepted into TripAdvisor listing, if it meets the following criteria:

Tour companies that offer private tours may qualify for a listing if:

  • The company offers day tours (not overnight or multi-day).

  • The company is licensed/recognised by local city or tourism officials.

  • The company has a functional website.

  • The word "Private" appears in the listing name.

  • The bottom line is, your travel agency can be listed as an "Attraction" in TripAdvisor if you have a proper website, your company is legally licensed to operate and you conduct day tours. You must provide proper email address, physical address and phone number.
