Google Vacation Rentals Listing

What is Google Vacation Rentals?

Google Vacation Rentals is Google’s meta-search engine for short-term rental properties. When a user enters a query to find accommodation in a specific city or region, Google will display a map with all the available STR lodging options in the area.

Getting listed on Google Vacation Rentals used to be a perk limited to certain OTAs and prominent property managers with more than 5.000 properties – but not anymore! Now you can also list your Lodgify website directly on GVR, with all the benefits that this entails.

Increase your visibility on Google

Google is the most popular search engine in the world. More than 9 out of every ten online searches take place there. Strong visibility on Google is an excellent way to ensure more direct bookings, and this is where GVR comes into play.

Google Vacation Rentals’ map will appear on top of all organic results. Listing your property on GVR means you will outrank even the most popular OTAs, like Airbnb, Vrbo, or Booking.com. The best part? Users who land on your GVR listing will be automatically redirected to your website.

Google Vacation Rentals and Lodgify Integration

More direct bookings, zero commissions

Google Vacation Rentals is a search engine, not an OTA. You will not get charged any commission for listing your property on this platform.

There’s no booking fee either since any potential guest will be redirected to your vacation rental website, where the reservation will take place. Therefore, it’s mandatory to have your own Lodgify website to get listed on Google Vacation Rentals.

Boost your brand online

Whenever a search triggers your property to be shown on Google Vacation Rentals, you will do so with a dedicated landing page populated with information from your website.

This landing page will display your logo, property name and description, prices and availability, location, accommodation images, amenities, and more. The more accurate your data is, the better your chances of ranking on top of the GVR results page.
