September 2, 2014 – Dallas, USA & Munich, Germany – TrustYou, the inventor of the Meta-ReviewTM and global online reputation management leader, has partnered with newly launched hotel decision engine, SmartDepart to offer travelers a better way to book their hotels.

SmartDepart gives travelers a full overview of hotel prices as well as aggregated review summaries and TrustScores from TrustYou’s Meta-ReviewsTM. Travelers can then easily compare hotels and even receive hotel recommendations based on these details.

“If you look at the current landscape of hotel booking sites, most do a great job at helping you find the best price, but very little to actually help you decide which hotel is best for you. We are excited to be working with TrustYou to provide travelers with valuable data from verified reviews to help make booking decisions easier,” said Matt Yagey, Founder & CEO of SmartDepart.

TrustYou’s Meta-Reviews™ allow partners access to semantic analysis of verified hotel reviews from travel sites worldwide, creating text summaries available in 26 languages. Depending on how a TrustYou partner chooses to display hotel details, travelers may see everything from an all-encompassing TrustScore, based on the overall experience of travelers worldwide to ratings for specific details of the stay (i.e., 81% of reviewers found the staff to be very friendly).

“Travelers need a simple and quick way to analyze prices and reviews for hotels all in one place. SmartDepart is revolutionizing the search-shop-buy process by bringing together all of this information for travelers, said Ellis Connolly, EVP of Sales at TrustYou. “We are excited about this partnership because SmartDepart shares TrustYou’s mission of positively influencing traveler’s decisions.”
