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.

Buckle up!

Jason & the Trover Team

Trover 101: Introducing Cover Photos for Lists!

You work hard to make your photos look as good as possible. You also work hard to put together beautiful and interesting lists of travel photos you find here on Trover. Shouldn’t those lists be something you want to show off to family and friends and other world travelers? We think so.

That’s why we’re super excited to announce a brand new feature for the Trover website: Cover Photos for Lists! With Cover Photos, you can bring your your Bucket List to life, show off your most beautiful discoveries, and capture the mood of a trip-planning inspiration list.

Adding your own Cover Photos for Lists couldn’t be easier:

Simply hover your cursor over the gear icon that appears on a discovery in list-view and select “Use as cover photo.

The page will reload, and the top portion of your selected discovery will now appear as the cover photo! To change the cover photo for your list, simply repeat the same process with a new photo.

This feature is currently only available on the desktop version of Trover.com, but keep your eyes on the Trover Blog for announcements in the future about Cover Photos on mobile apps and other exciting product features!
