Hoteliers are now able to respond to the foreign language reviews on TripAdvisor by conveniently clicking on the “Reply at TripAdvisor” link within Revinate. For those who do not yet have Revinate, you can select the reply link via the owner response center and have the option to select the review you want to reply to.

If you are a Revinate customer, please remember to, once you’ve submitted your response on TripAdvisor, click on the green confirm button in the Response Assistant Toolbar to the left. By doing this, you are informing Revinate that you have submitted a response. Our software is able to track the reviews that you have responded to versus the reviews where the response has been posted live on the site.
