Tripadvisor is launching two new
subscription products to its suite of solutions for hoteliers.
Spotlight is a new business intelligence
solution created in partnership with OTA Insight, to help hoteliers forecast
demand and set appropriate rates.
Since historical data is virtually
irrelevant due to COVID-19, Tripadvisor says its Spotlight solution can help
hoteliers maximize RevPAR by combining the platform’s forward-looking consumer search
data with OTA Insight’s pricing and parity data.
The subscription gives hoteliers access to

competitors, adjust rates and identify parity issues. Market Spotlight provides
search data from Tripadvisor along with OTA Insight’s aggregated data on
flights, alternative accommodations and more.
