Metasearch system for traveling 

In today's world, travel has become more and more accessible. Travelers want to get the most relevant information about their hotel and ticket options in the shortest amount of time, that is why an increasing number of people are relying on metasearch engines now when exploring their possibilities. But what is a metasearch system? A metasearch system is a search engine that, unlike classical search engines, does not have its own database and its own search index, but generates search results by mixing and re-ranking search results from other search engines. Submitting multiple queries to several other search engines expands the coverage of the available data on the topic and allows you to find more information. Metasearch uses indexes collected by other search engines, aggregating and often refining results in its own unique ways. A metasearch engine has an advantage over a single search engine because the user will get more results for the same effort. This reduces the amount of work when users enter queries into different systems separately to search for resources.

Metasearch engines represent a huge opportunity for hotels as the easier travelers can find and book your hotel the better for a hotel. In addition to that, metasearch combines the digital marketing and distribution efforts of a hotel. Metasearch engine presents as a booking channel and an environment to advertise your hotel.

Metasearch system has been a growing digital marketing trend for quite some time now. The past four or five years have witnessed the rise of metasearch systems. The last 12 months have seen an especially rapid rise.
