AMSTERDAM – TomTom (TOM2) has been chosen by the global hotel search platform, trivago, to be one of their geocoding providers, in order to create a better user experience. The agreement will see TomTom Online Search API being used to improve address geocoding in trivago’s hotel and accommodation database, allowing people to seamlessly search for an address, business or place, easily integrating location search into an application.

Anders Truelsen, Managing Director, TomTom Enterprise, said: “Because TomTom offers a personal approach to delivering high quality Maps APIs, companies like trivago trust us when they’re developing their backend applications.”

“TomTom geocoding services provide us with the ability to geocode large amounts, and various types, of hotel and accommodation addresses worldwide – which is particularly useful at the moment, as we are in the process of onboarding a sizeable volume of alternative accommodation properties. This is essential for us, in order to ensure an optimal lead time and guarantee the best quality connections between destinations and hotels,” says Romain Beget, Data Products Lead at trivago.
