Frequently Asked Questions for Certificate for Excellence Recipients

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions from accommodation (Hotels, B&Bs, Inns, and Speciality Lodging), restaurant, and experience owners on their Certificate of Excellence. If you have additional questions that are not covered below, please read our Tripadvisor Insights article. If you are a holiday rental owner looking for more information on the Certificate of Excellence, visit our Rentals Support Centre here to learn more.

What do I receive for earning a Certificate of Excellence?

A badge is automatically added to your Tripadvisor page. By request only, you receive a free certificate customised with your business name and a sticker. You also receive a widget you can put on your website, press release templates, and access to other branded Certificate of Excellence materials that allow you to fully promote your accomplishment.

Can I get a digital copy of my Certificate of Excellence?

While we currently don't offer digital copies of a customised Certificate of Excellence, you can download ready-to-print assets with the Certificate of Excellence logo in the BrandFolder. You can also request a free printed certificate with your business name in the Management Centre.

I requested my Certificate of Excellence, but where can I request a sticker?

A Certificate of Excellence sticker comes in the same shipment as your certificate so there is no need to place a separate order.

Can I buy a Certificate of Excellence?

No, the Certificate of Excellence is an award that businesses earn based on their consistently great traveller reviews on Tripadvisor over the past year. The achievement is in no way associated with a purchase or commercial relationship.

Tripadvisor will never call you or visit your business for credit card, bank, or other sensitive information regarding the Certificate of Excellence. If you find your business in this situation, it could be fraudulent activity. We advise you to email

Can I receive a custom logo with my business name on it?

We currently don’t offer customised logos, but we encourage you to use the Certificate of Excellence logos to develop custom promotions.

My widget doesn’t have my business name — is it broken?

As of 2017, the Certificate of Excellence widgets are not customised with business name.

Where can I find a list of all my properties that qualified for a Certificate of Excellence?

You can see which of your businesses qualified for this year’s Certificate of Excellence by manually checking for each property in your Management Centre. If you’d like to find out if any of your businesses qualified in previous years, navigate to the Certificate of Excellence order form (instructions above). On the order form, select "Year" from the dropdown box, and you will see each year your business has qualified.

Where can I request my Hall of Fame Certificate?

Congratulations on 5+ years of consistently great service! To get your special edition Hall of Fame certificate and sticker, place an order through the Management Centre, following the usual process. Once we get your order, you'll receive both your standard Certificate of Excellence and Hall of Fame materials.

The special edition Hall of Fame is a recognition for receiving the Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years.
