For any Business aiming to sell to users in the hospitality sector one of the best sources to find potential leads is Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor is the ultimate database of hotels, restaurants and attractions globally. Tripadvisor provides details of these businesses including rating, reviews, contact number and emails.
In this how-to guide, we’re going to show you how to use WebAutomation's ready-made TripAdvisor's Scrapers to extract data from TripAdvisor and export to a CSV file. With this tool, you will be able to extract data like Name, Address, Facilities, email, phone number, prices, reviews and ratings for Hotels, Restaurants and Attractions
See the data highlighted in the screenshot of the information from TripAdvisor you will be able to extract.

Watch the below video, which shows how most of the above data of hotels or restaurants can be scraped from Tripadvisor using WebAutomation.io Pre-built TripAdvisor scraper.
If you don't already have a Webautomation account, you can sign up for a free trial account with your email here.
Once you sign in you will be redirected to the in-app home page. As we are looking only for the TripAdisor Extractor, search for it on the main search bar. When you see the result, click on it. In Webautomation.io you will find 4 TripAdvisor extractors
To confirm you want to go ahead and add the extractor to your profile, click the Activate button.
Open TripAdvisor.com in a new tab and then select restaurants and add a location e.g. London . For this example, this London Restaurant search gives us all the Restaurants listed on TripAdvisor in London
Now we can filter further to get a more precise search of restaurants we want. Once you are satisfied with the search, copy the URL and go back into WebAutomation. See the URL we used.
P.S The only valid format for TripAdvisor restaurants URLs contains /Restaurants
Pro tip 1: To get the best results, make your search as specific as possible so you limit your results and don't waste credits on unwanted results.
The key input required is the starter link from TripAdvisor. This is the URL you copied in step4, so now paste your link in the Edit Starter Links box and click Update.
For the TripAdvisor Restaurants Make sure it starts with https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants
Pro tip 3: To limit the amount of rows you get back, go to advanced settings and enter a number in the Rows Count to Close field. This is only available on certain paid plans.
Click the "Run now " button to begin the extractor session.
You will get a pop up telling you the extractor is running and the status of the extractor will show as "running". Our scraping method works like a real user, allowing you to extract all the data you need without being blocked. Because of this, it can take several mins/hours to scrape all the results, depending on how many there are in the starter URL you input.
You will be notified by email once the extractor has finished. You can click the link in the email or log in to your account and go to the Data tab to download the data.
You can download as CSV, JSON, XLSX, XML and JL.
In this example, we downloaded our file as a CSV, so we will use Microsoft Excel to open the file
