FAQs

 

1. What are Google Hotel Ads?

Google Hotel Ads is the largest metasearch channel. It is operated by Google and integrated with its other services, including its main search engine, the Google Maps service, and the AI-powered Google Assistant. The platform works by presenting information about hotels and their room availability to potential customers who enter relevant search queries.

 

2. How do Google Hotel Ads work?

When customers search for a hotel on Google Search or Maps, they’ll see a hotel search module with photos, names, prices, and maps. This provides the opportunity to perform quick room rate comparisons and offers links to different booking engines, allowing customers to find the best possible price.

When they select a hotel, they’ll see up-to-date prices and links to book directly with that hotel for the dates and number of guests they select. 

 

3. How much does Google Hotel Ads cost?

The cost per booking with Google Hotel Ads is less than the average cost per booking for OTAs. Compared to the industry average cost per booking of 18% for OTAs, Google Hotel Ads allows you to gain direct bookings for less than an OTA reservation.
