How do I search on TripAdvisor?

Whether you are looking for a city, a particular accommodation, something in the forums, a restaurant near your hotel or something else, we can help you find it on our site.

There are two main ways to search on TripAdvisor:

  • The General Search box is found at the top of our home page. Results from a general search include the TripAdvisor page of a business or a destination that contain your keywords, plus quotes from reviews and discussions on the forums that also match your search criteria.

    If you are looking for a particular review or forum post, scroll to the section of your search results called Review and Opinion Results.
  • Hotel search: use the Plan the Perfect Trip box near the top of our home page to search for and quickly find accommodations, flights, restaurants, things to do, cruises, and forums. Here, you can choose specific check-in and check-out dates for your stay.

    For more customised results, narrow your search to only include certain accommodation types: hotels, B&Bs/inns, speciality lodging, or holiday rentals.

    Use the additional filters on the left to narrow your search by price range, traveller rating, hotel class, amenity type, property type, and neighbourhood for large cities.
