Are there any plans to become a Google Hotel Ads Integration Partner?

It would be great if beds24 had integration for Google Hotel Ads Cost-Per-Click platform. Right now adwords does the job but for periods in which most of the rooms are sold out a more targeted advertising platform, like Hotel Ads, is needed.

This is not a wish, it is a necessity to be competitive, I think. Regards

'''We are getting ready for Google Hotel Ads'''

Who can use Google Hotel Ads?
To qualify for this service your property must provide a staffed reception desk.

How it works
Set the commission you are prepared to pay for bookings direct from Google hotel ads.

If your commission bid is competitive, Google will provide a link to your direct booking page in their search results.

You only pay commission for confirmed bookings resulting from the search result, not pay per click etc.

Preparation
Before using the service Google must map your property, to start the mapping process, set the desired room types to Notify and we will send your property data to Google.

Properties can be mapped now so bidding can start as soon as we go live. It may take Google a few weeks to complete the property mapping.

The Notify setting is a free link (no charge) in the channel manager.

What to do
Go to SETTINGS-CHANNEL MANAGER-GOOGLE HOTEL ADS and set "Sycnchronise" = Notify so Google can map you.

Bidding
Coming soon, your property must first be mapped before you can bid.

Does it mean that an office that rents holiday villas can't use google hotel ads for individual properties? If this is the case, what is the reason for this limitation?

Thanks for clarifying! :)

Googles guidelines are that the property should have the following:
  • Rooms in which paying guests can stay
  • A physical presence and fixed location that is open to the public
  • A staffed front desk open during normal business hours
  • A minimum stay requirement of no greater than 7 days
If in doubt you will need to check with Google if your property matches these conditions.

Hi Annette,

we have setup SETTINGS-CHANNEL MANAGER-GOOGLE HOTEL ADS and set "Sycnchronise" = Notify for several months now. How will we know if/when google have mapped us ?

Also, is there a google admin panel or something we can login and use as per the other google services ? Or is it that you have an account with google and we have an account with you ?

Thanks,
Brian

All management of Google Hotel Ads is done in Beds24, Google do not provide a control panel for Hotels.

We are working on a self service view mapping tool, but for now please use a Beds24 support ticket to request the information and we can look it up for you.
