NEEDHAM, Mass., Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TripAdvisor® (NASDAQ: TRIP), the world's largest travel site, and DoorDash, the on-demand destination connecting customers to their favorite national and local businesses, today announced the integration of DoorDash's platform into the TripAdvisor experience.
TripAdvisor users are now able to satisfy their cravings with food delivered through DoorDash in more than 1,800 cities throughout North America. By clicking the "Order Online" button found on the TripAdvisor app or website, customers will be brought directly to DoorDash's platform to quickly and easily place an order for delivery or pickup. By integrating with DoorDash's platform that connects customers with hundreds of thousands of restaurants, TripAdvisor will add online ordering capabilities to more than 24,000 TripAdvisor restaurant listings that previously had no online ordering links.
"Our integration with DoorDash will make it even easier for diners to order food online and get it delivered right to them, wherever they are," said Evan Becker, head of key accounts, TripAdvisor Restaurants. "The partnership will also help restauranteurs gain more exposure on our app and site."
Leading the industry in selection, DoorDash partners with ninety percent of the top 100 restaurants that offer delivery, including national favorites like Chipotle, IHOP, Chick-fil-A, Red Lobster and White Castle. DoorDash is also the exclusive delivery provider for The Cheesecake Factory and Wendy's.
