What is TripAdvisor Hotels Restaurants?

TripAdvisor Hotels Restaurants is a travel-related app that makes it easy to find helpful advice and tips from trusted travel experts. Reviews, photos and virtual tours are also included.


This app can be found in the App Store and the Google Play Store. TripAdvisors features in-app advertisements and is rated for users of all ages.


When users first open this app, they will be prompted to allow location tracking so that TripAdvisor can make recommendations for places nearby. You can then opt to follow one or more “travel experts” who are actually bloggers and contributors to TripAdvisor.


You are then taken to a page that looks similar to that of a social networking site: you can post comments and see the posts of others which often include images. Although some of the images posted by travelers are breathtaking, caution should be taken when children are using this app. There may be times when someone posts an image that may not be appropriate for children to view (i.e. very romantic in nature).


You can save travel ideas and share them with friends. Hotel and air fare rates can be compared from over 200 booking sites. It’s also possible to tour and make restaurant reservations within the app.


Prospective travelers are often directed to third-party websites to make travel arrangements, book tours, etc.


Apps similar to TripAdvisor Hotels Restaurants include Yelp, Trivago, Expedia and Travelocity.


As of 12/17/18, this app received updates in the form of reliability and performance enhancements. The app was optimized to conserve battery power and only use GPS where necessary. On average, users give this app a rating of 4.3/5.0. Overall, users are impressed with the relevant reviews and reliable guides but would like to see improvements in filtering capabilities.

Is TripAdvisor Hotels Restaurants safe for my kids?

This app could be useful and safe for older teens with parental supervision. When first engaging with the app, suggestions of people to follow are offered and need to be monitored to ensure that children aren’t engaging with predators. 

Because this operates as a social networking app, the following is also possible:  cyberbullying, tech addiction, or mature themes.  Third-party ads within the app also present the possibility of children being exposed to mature themes.

The ESRB rating of “Everyone” (The Entertainment Software Rating Board assigns ratings to videos and apps to ensure that content is targeted to appropriate audiences.)  should be reconsidered since there is the possibility of children being exposed to inappropriate content.
