You may have noticed that we’ve been testing a new experience for our desktop site over the past few weeks. The good news is that we have now rolled it out completely this week, along with a new experience for our apps (iOS and Android).
Over the past few years, we’ve evolved from a hotel reviews site to a place where travelers can compare the lowest hotel prices and plan every aspect of their trip, including hotels, attractions, restaurants, vacation rentals, flights and more – anywhere in the world. Our new design better reflects the travel planning and price comparison resource that we are today, and signals to our users that we’ve changed. With our new experience, our community of travelers can more easily plan every aspect of their trip using TripAdvisor, including finding the lowest price for the right hotel, as well as get the best value on flights, vacation rentals, restaurants and other things to do in-destination.
We’re excited about this new look for our site and app (which also includes an updated shade of green), and we hope that our members will appreciate the new more streamlined design, allowing folks to more quickly find the information they need to plan and book their best trips. We also know that change often takes a little while to get used to, and some features have moved around on the page (for example, the links to change our site language and currency are now at the bottom of pages, and Saved Trips is now an icon on the masthead).
We’re happy to announce that Private Message notification/alerts are back, as well as the link to view Messages in the drop-down menu in the masthead.
We’ll be continuing to make improvements to the new site look in the upcoming weeks, to make it even better.
