Expert Review API

The Expert Review API provides access to professional review data for hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions from leading travel guides, magazines and newspapers.

Top tier publication sources.

Our 70+ source publications include The New York Times, Frommer’s, Travel + Leisure, Michelin Guide, and Lonely Planet.

Higher booking conversion rates.

Visitors are more likely to make a reservation when they see endorsements from sources they know and trust.

We distill professional opinion.

Our patent-pending algorithm generates a TripExpert Score and our curated review extracts capture the key points of each review.

For Individual Venue Owners

We make available various customized badges that you can easily embed on your hotel or restaurant website. The badges update automatically without the need for you to use the API. Get your badges now:
