Google Hotel Ads, formerly known as Google Hotel Finder, is an exciting initiative created by Google to improve not only the travel consumer’s booking experience but to help hotels’ increase their business by featuring prominently on the world’s largest online market.
Google Hotel Ads allows you to showcase your hotel in local search results on Google.com and in Google Maps, across all mobile and desktop devices. Travelers’ will see your ads when they are actively looking for accommodation in your area.
In addition, it offers the opportunity for travellers to book directly with you, bypassing the online travel agencies (OTAs), allowing you to capture more bookings direct, on your own website.
Google has partnered with a select network of integration partners only to connect hotels to this service. HiRUM is proud to be one of these.
Why should your hotel be listed on Google Hotel Ads?
Hotel Ads is Google’s solution to improve travel search. Google Hotel Ads listings are displayed above standard search results. Google “Surfers Paradise accommodation” and you will find a Hotel Ads search box at the top of the list. It is imperative that your hotel has a prominent listing in order to stand out in local searches.
Another major benefit is that bookings are direct to you, with customer information to be retained by you at the time of booking, allowing you to control your deposit and cancellation policies, and also create opportunities to pre-sell tours and contact guests prior to check-in.
