How Much Does a TripAdvisor Video Cost?

The use of video on social media and various advertising channels for a travel company, hotel, or even a bed and breakfast is important for the success of your marketing. In fact, posting a video to Trip Advisor can help you to reach more people with your product offering and secure bookings for your accommodations, but how much does a TripAdvisor video cost?

With the standard cost of video production running between $1,000 and $10,000 per finished minute, you can expect to spend a couple of thousand on a great Trip Advisor video, but what really matters is that you get a video that not only showcases your brand and business for what it’s worth — but that speaks volumes to those in your immediate market.

Additionally, a TripAdvisor video is going to have expenses associated with the graphics and any drone footage or aerial footage that is captured as part of your production.

Be prepared to pay more for these styles of content as there are added equipment needs, drone licenses, and other expenses involved.
