TripAdvisor Vs. Travelzoo: Which Travel Stock Is A Better Buy?

TripAdvisor, Inc. (TRIP - Get Rating) and Travelzoo (TZOO - Get Rating) are two leading online travel companies that provide hotel, lodging and accommodation search and booking facilities. TRIP operates in the Hotels, Media & Platform, and Experiences & Dining segments, under TripAdvisor-branded websites. TZOO publishes insider deals from travel, entertainment and local businesses, such as restaurants and spas.

While the travel industry experienced one of the worst periods in its history in 2020, there’s now growing optimism about the industry’s recovery this year because COVID-19 vaccines are gradually containing the spread of the virus globally. In fact, as pent-up travel demand continues to surge, the travel industry is on track for a potential positive inflection in the coming months. Because domestic travel activities are resuming gradually with the easing of lockdown restrictions, we think TRIP and TZOO are poised to witness strong demand for their services.

TRIP – The large scale COVID-19 vaccination drive is raising hopes for the travel industry’s solid recovery this year. The industry came to a standstill last year, but domestic travel started showing signs of recovery earlier this year. We believe the two leaders in the online travel space—TripAdvisor (TRIP) and Travelzoo (TZOO)—are well positioned to ride an industry rebound and reward shareholders. But let’s find out which of these is a better buy now.

While TRIP returned 209.3% over the past year, TZOO gained 326.5%. In terms of their past month’s performance, TZOO is the clear winner with 24% gains versus TRIP’s 8.4%. But which of these stocks is a better pick now? Let’s find out.

Latest Movements
