Lodgify Integrates with Google Vacation Rentals to Boost Direct Bookings

Get ready for a groundbreaking collaboration that’s set to reshape the vacation rental landscape. Lodgify has joined forces with Google Vacation Rentals (GVR), Google’s metasearch engine for short-term rental properties worldwide.

This exciting integration opens up a world of opportunities for Lodgify’s global customer base, providing unmatched exposure, access to a wider audience, and the ability to secure commission-free direct bookings through relevant Google searches.

Dominate Google searches and outrank other listing sites

By integrating with GVR, Lodgify is harnessing the power of Google, where 90% of online searches take place, to strategically maximize the advertising potential of property managers.

When potential guests search for accommodations based on their desired location, complete with specific filters for dates, price, amenities, and more, Lodgify customers’ compatible properties will appear on Google’s interactive map, even outranking listings from popular vacation rental listing sites, such as Airbnb and Vrbo.

Essentially free advertising, this prominent placement allows Lodgify customers to showcase their brand name and logo, direct traffic to their own website, and secure commission-free bookings.

Say hello to direct bookings

By keeping our customers’ brands front and center, this integration can help them avoid the 15-25% commissions charged by major OTAs. As this service is completely free of charge, property managers using Lodgify can now benefit from direct bookings without incurring any additional costs—even from Google!

Unlike other property management softwares, Lodgify doesn’t host their listing on a third-party page on their website. Lodgify gives full visibility to their customers’ brands on GVR and leads searchers directly to the customers’ own domain URL to book, browse, or send an inquiry.

“We’re excited to continue offering vacation rental hosts ways to increase their direct bookings, and to manage their business on their own terms,” expressed Dennis Klett, co-founder and CEO of Lodgify, “Google is one of the strongest sources for lead generation, and we hope this integration helps amplify their global reach and visibility towards high-intent travelers.”
