In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tripadvisor launched Hotels for Health, a program to link health and government agencies around the globe to providers of accommodation, that can provide the rooms necessary.
Most hospitals are in crisis mode and health workers on the front lines are reluctant to return home for a variety of reasons (e.g., close contact with positive COVID-19 patients).
The rooms offered by Tripadvisor's hotel, hostel, bed and breakfast would have a positive effect on the lives of healthcare heroes who could need a safe place to rest, relax and refresh.
On this website, tripadvisor.com/business/hotelsforhealth provider will suggest that rooms and hotels are required to notify health providers that they have available spare rooms. The Tripadvisor teams will connect hotels and healthcare providers.
Tripadvisor will use its vast database of over two million accommodation facilities around the world to monitor unique lists in particular areas in which beds are desperately needed.
Tripadvisor connects health institutes with supportive lodging partners. Following that link, both parties (excluding Tripadvisor) handle the logistics and specifics of the lodging experience directly.
Tripadvisor is now extending the system internationally, following a trial linking the UK National Health Service and selected hotels in the south of England.
This initiative is part of some of the major hotel chains including Marriott, Hilton and Accor, which also use their empty beds for good through similar initiatives.
