TripAdvisor policy for listings

We list accommodations that offer multiple rooms/units at one specific address and can accommodate more than one party of guests at a time.

The accommodation must have an official name and address and offer daily onsite management.

To be listed in a particular accommodation category, our editors need to verify that the accommodation either:

Meets the TripAdvisor guidelines in that category as listed here, which means that we would need to see those services listed on the accommodation’s website or a partner’s website, such as a tourist board or reservations partner.


Is licensed specifically as that type of accommodation by either the local tourism board or governmental officials.

To be in the “Hotels” tab, the accommodation must offer all four of the following features:

  • A front desk opened and staffed 24/7.
  • Daily housekeeping included in the room rate.
  • Private bathroom for each unit.
  • If there is a minimum-stay requirement, it must be no more than 3 nights.

To be in the “B&B/Inns” tab, the accommodation must have:

  • Onsite staff daily.
  • Daily housekeeping included in the room rate.

Requirements for the “Speciality Lodging” tab include:

  • The accommodation must have onsite staff daily.
  • Any accommodation that offers shared (dorm-style) rooms will be considered a hostel, and will be listed in “Speciality Lodging”.

Holiday Rentals” include:

  • Private holiday homes, villas, or units (apartments, condos) that are available to one party/group of travellers at one time for exclusive use.
  • Accommodations where homes/units are at different addresses, even if they are owned/managed by one company.
  • Accommodations without full time staff onsite at the same location with the guest accommodations.
  • See more about listing a holiday rental on TripAdvisor.

We list permanent places of interest to tourists. We include equipment hire listings for sport-related activities such as bicycles, surf boards, and scooters. We do not list car/auto rentals, rentals of electronic equipment (such as cell phones, tablets, and GPS units), or personal items (such as baby strollers, beach umbrellas, and cameras).

The attraction must have an official name, address, and published telephone number. It must be open/available to customers on a regularly scheduled basis. Pre-determined hours or departure times must be published on an official website or in a printed brochure.

If the attraction is not in a fixed place (e.g., tour or cruise), then scheduled departure times, place of departure and destinations (if applicable) must be provided on the website or in the brochure. We list companies that offer day tours or day cruises.

Tour companies that offer private tours may qualify for a listing if:

  • The company offers day tours (not overnight or multi-day).
  • The company is licensed/recognised by local city or tourism officials.
  • The company has a website.
  • The word “Private” appears in the listing name.

We list restaurants that are open to the general public. For chains we list each location as an individual restaurant.
