Vacation Rentals provides travelers with alternative ways to book accommodations beyond hotels. Travelers can find unique properties—be it a cabin in Lake Tahoe or a beach house in Sydney—by applying the Vacation Rentals filter, visiting the Vacation Rentals tab, or searching for vacation rentals directly on Search.
Just like hotels, vacation rentals appear on Google Maps and Search. However, Google has made some key changes to account for important differences in what guests and owners expect when they book a vacation rental.
For example, users can book vacation rentals more easily on Google with search filters for specific amenities, higher occupancy, and multiple rooms. Additionally, Google doesn’t display the exact property address in order to protect the privacy of the owner/property manager. Instead, travelers can only see an estimated location of the property.
With Vacation Rentals, both travelers and vacation rental providers benefit from these features and available options.
|Travelers can find their dream vacation rental with occupancy and amenity filters specific to Vacation Rentals, such as if the property allows pets, is kid friendly, has a hot tub, or can accommodate a group getaway.||Along with essential listing information such as pricing, reviews, ratings, and photos, travelers can also discover nearby restaurants, transit availability, and other points of interest near the property.||Travelers can compare accommodation types by browsing hotels and vacation rentals together, and explore vacation rental properties with specific attributes, reviews, and proximity to points of interest.|
Vacation Rental providers:
|The properties you represent can be prominently displayed to travelers worldwide actively searching for their next booking. Travelers can view photos, descriptions, and pricing for your properties.||Share vacation rentals with Google to reach new travelers who were drawn to Hotels, but are now open to lodging beyond hotels.|
