TripAdvisor Just Made Ordering Food a Whole Lot Easier
It can be hard to figure out where to eat when you're traveling, leading many to consult guidebooks or Yelp reviews to figure out the best place to find some food in a new city. Now, in an effort to make it easier to order food to your new home-away-from-home, TripAdvisor has partnered with Grubhub, integrating an "Order Online" button on the restaurant review pages you're probably browsing anyway.
Clicking on the order button will redirect you to Grubhub.com (or Seamless.com) where you'll be able to place an order for either delivery or pickup. Note that Grubhub serves 1,100 cities around the US, so you'll only be able to use this feature stateside and not at any restaurants abroad. The new ordering feature is available through TripAdvisor's desktop website, mobile website and mobile app.
TripAdvisor already offers the ability to reserve a table at restaurants through its website and this new feature could be great for those who are staying at an Airbnb or for travelers who aren't happy with their hotel's room service menu. The company also added an instant booking option for IHG hotels last week, so it'll be interesting to see how this new booking technology will be used in the future.
