Review trivago: Hotels & Travel

Brandon Girod
7.9Good
Offers several ways to sort through your searches, the options for dates and amount of travelers is dead simple
The design could use some work, there is too much information inside each card, the search function is unreliable
Travel apps are all the rage on mobile devices. Just go to the Play Store and check out the Editor’s Choice and Top Rated app sections. They’ll be full of them. Trivago for Android is a hotel booking at that you can use on the go.
Travel apps have a weird place in my mind because I’ve never actually used one. I think the ability to use one of the go is incredibly invaluable, but I’ve always done my planning at home on my PC, mainly because it’s big enough to get a good look at the places I’m looking at booking.
This app really does little to help encourage me to use an app like this in the future either. My first set of complaints are lodged at the search engine. It wouldn’t recognize my zip code and would produce no results when I searched for it specifically. Also, typing in the name and state of where I’m located generated very specific results instead of the more broad spectrum of my entire city.
I’m also not a big fan of the app’s layout and design. I’m a huge fan of material design and this app totally ignores all of its design guidelines and kind of does its own thing. This is normally fine, but the design just feel like it’s a step back. There is a lot of information present on screen that doesn’t necessarily need to be.
Trivago isn’t a bad travel app, though, and it does a lot of things right. Its search does work, and it has some good sorting options. The booking dates are a little weird and you can’t book directly through the app, though it does have its own browser so you aren’t kicked out of the app while booking. It’s a good travel app, but its design could definitely be better.
