Hi Trovers,

We are thrilled to announce that Trover has been acquired by Expedia. We are the newest member in their family of travel’s most well-known brands including names like Expedia.com, Hotels.com, trivago and HomeAway. Expedia’s mission is to “revolutionize travel through technology,” and they believe Trover’s beautiful content and social experience is a great fit with this mission. We can’t imagine higher recognition for our community. Congrats to all of us!

With over 450 million visitors across its brand websites every month, Expedia can dramatically increase the reach of Trover. This means your photos will have a much larger impact. Hopefully, many new visitors will see and be inspired by your travels. We’re also betting that some of these visitors will join our community, adding new voices, relationships, and killer images that fuel our passion for adventure.

We expect the Trover experience will get a boost from Expedia, too. We’ll have a strong partner as we continue to build Trover and explore new ways to turn travel dreams into action.

Thank you Trovers! Your curiosity and talent have driven our little team for the past five years. We’re over-the-moon excited for the next leg of our journey together. Any questions? Reach us at feedback@trover.com.
