TripAdvisor is primed to give you advice. As a segment of leading online travel services provider Expedia, TripAdvisor's website features a search engine and directory that matches hotels with flights and packages, as well as consumer reviews to help consumers make travel plans. The travel source strives to filter out irrelevant search results and provide information that is free of bias and in a mobile format for smartphone use. TripAdvisor partners with major players in the online travel business, such as Hotwire, Hotels.com, and American Airlines, and offers localized versions in France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, the UK, and other countries. Expedia took steps toward spinning off TripAdvisor late 2011.
