In a statement released with the results, TripAdvisor’s president and chief executive, Steve Kaufer, said: “We were very pleased with how we ended 2014. Most importantly, 2014 was a year in which we laid the foundation for TripAdvisor’s future.
“In addition to helping users plan a trip through our rich content, global travel community and price comparison tools, we have begun enabling more users to complete their booking in our three largest demand categories: hotels, attractions, and restaurants.
“This makes TripAdvisor the most comprehensive one-stop shop in travel. Starting in 2015, we plan to aggressively scale and promote this more complete user proposition.”
TripAdvisor’s websites had more than 2.5 billion unique visitors during 2014, according to Google Analytics.
