Fourteen years ago, TripAdvisor began with a simple idea: travelers could help each other make more informed travel decisions if they had a way to share their first-hand experiences, reviews, and photos.
In the years since, that idea caught on like wildfire with travelers, millions of whom have offered their personal experiences on TripAdvisor to help guide people to places and activities they won’t soon forget.
Today, we’re proud to announce that TripAdvisor has reached an important milestone: 150 million reviews and opinions contributed by travelers like you.
We like to think of these as 150 million stories– personal moments and memories that now help more than two billion travelers a year to plan and have the perfect trip using TripAdvisor. We now collect more than 90 of these user contributions per minute, totaling 50 million in the past year alone.
It astounds us every day to see the amazing things you’ve done and astonishing places you’ve been. We’re so thankful to have you in our community.
Cheers and happy travels from all of us at TripAdvisor.
