How to Earn TripAdvisor Awards & Recognitions

Properties often ask us how to earn TripAdvisor awards and recognition. Keep reading for a summary of what you need to know!

What recognitions does TripAdvisor give out?

We recognize top-rated properties with two distinctions: The Travelers’ Choice award is the highest honor TripAdvisor can bestow. It is awarded to the best of the best in travel, based on service, quality and customer satisfaction. The Certificate of Excellence celebrates hospitality businesses that have consistently achieved great traveler reviews.

Why do you give these out?

These distinctions are our way of acknowledging the hard work and time that many properties are investing, and helping them to stand out from their competition. 

What are they based on?

Reviews from the folks who matter most – the travelers! 

How can we get more reviews?

Talk to your guests and ask them to write reviews. And once they have returned home, follow up with a reminder. Go to the “Review” tab in the Management Center for free reminder tools, including Review Express – a particularly useful email tool.

We’ve received a TripAdvisor recognition, what’s next?

Congratulations! First, a badge with the recognition will automatically be added to your property’s page on TripAdvisor. Receiving this recognition on TripAdvisor is an opportunity to gain traveler interest and, most importantly, new bookings.

Next, it's up to you to spread the news and celebrate your success. Check out these tips for promoting your achievement.
