Expedia, TripAdvisor Team up on “Drive Getaway” Ideas Tool
Expedia.com launched a new interactive “Drive Getaway” ideas tool, developed in partnership with TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel community. The Drive Getaway tool provides users with ideas for driving-distance trips accessible from their starting city on a single tank of gas or less.
Using the tool, people can access lists of TripAdvisor’s top-rated destinations and area attractions, as well as Expedia.com’s highest-ranked hotels that are a specified driving distance from thousands of origination cities worldwide. The tool marks the first time TripAdvisor destination content is available on Expedia.com.
In order to narrow destination options, the Drive Getaway tool allows users to filter results for each starting city by offering three “trip length” choices: full tank (151 to 300 miles), half tank (76 to 150 miles) or quarter tank (up to 75 miles). In addition to the recommendations, the tool also provides TripAdvisor user-generated photos of destinations and attractions.
