Get to know Google Vacation Rentals

A gateway to direct bookings at no extra cost

Unlike standard OTAs, Google Vacation Rentals facilitates direct bookings by orienting customers toward your company page, meaning you’ll easily bypass the pitfalls of third party bookings. Plus, it’s completely free, with no charges for direct transactions. On top of that, when guests book direct, you’ll get the chance to collect their contact information.

Control over your properties and policies

Google’s new feature has introduced a wide variety of filters that mean you can list precisely what you’ve got to offer—and users can find what they’re looking for. In addition, there are very few restrictions around cancellation policy: you can opt to provide a type (moderate, strict, etc.), a free-text explanation, or not to include it at all. Put simply, what you list is up to you.

Wide distribution

With Google’s extensive search capabilities and reach, your accommodation will be prominently displayed to travelers worldwide who are actively searching for their next booking. And we know that everyone searches on Google, right?
