Rocket Internet’s hotel booking site, Jovago, has achieved an API integration with TripAdvisor, the global travel site with over 4 million hotels. This is a move that the firm says will facilitate easier hotel booking for travellers around the world.
This integration will give travellers visiting the TripAdvisor site a direct access to Jovago’s selection of hotels in Africa. So in a search for hotel in Lagos on TripAdvisor Users can now click directly on the hotel search result link of their choice to make their bookings on Expedia, Booking.com,hotels.com and newly integrated, Jovago ,while also checking out the reviews made by other travellers.
Jovago lists about 5,000 hotels across Africa, 3,000 in Nigeria and about 880 hotels in Lagos, while TripAdvisor list 89 hotels in Lagos. A relatively low number, but perhaps the new integration will boost that number.
Since we are talking about hotels, it seems appropriate to ask. Where is hotels.ng in all these?
