I'm the General Manager for a hotel on the central coast of California. The Trivago sales team called non-stop for a month trying to speak to me. I finally took the call to get them off our backs. I ended up signing up for the service for one year. They did a good job on the "sell."
When I had questions two weeks later about our page etc., no one would return my call. I emailed asking for a call back. I got a very generic reply that did me no good at all. I continued to call and email for over a month, voicing my frustrations about not being able to speak to someone about my questions. I got one response with the explanation for not calling me back was the time zones in Europe different than states. Really? That did not stop the sales guy from calling our front desk four times a day for weeks during business hours. Eventually I gave up. Not worth my time.
A year later when I saw a charge for $550 on my credit card from Trivago, I called immediately and told them I did not want to renew my membership and was very dissatisfied with my first year's membership. Their response was basically "too bad." Subscriptions are on auto-renew, which I did not know. I disputed the charge but did not have proof that I didn’t know of the auto-renew. I did speak to someone at Trivago about my complaints and was told that the company had grown so quickly that they were very short staffed and unable to return American client phone calls.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
