How to collect TripAdvisor reviews (and boost bookings!)

TripAdvisor reviewsWe all love to know what other people think. When we’re making a decision on where to stay, hearing from previous guests can really sway our choice and:

  • Give real insight into a stay at your property
  • Boost guests’ trust and confidence, increasing your chances of securing a booking
  • Push your ad up the search rankings when guests are sorting their results by ‘number of reviews’.
  • Improve guests’ experiences by helping you to make changes to your offering

To get guest reviews on your ad, we’ve got all the info you need:

How to collect reviews

1. Send an email through your Holiday Lettings Dashboard

  • Log in to your Dashboard and go to Properties > Manage your reviews
  • Click on the Collect Reviews tab
  • Click on View sample email to read the pre-written message for guests. Simply close the window when you’re done
  • Select Send request to enter the email address(es) of previous guests, then hit the green button to send the message to all guests in the list

2. Send a personal email

For that personal touch, you can send your own message from your Inbox or personal email account. Reply to a previous email/message from the guest you want to contact to ask them to write a review and include a link to your advert (eg. www.holidaylettings.co.uk/1234).
