We have some exciting news! As mentioned before, we aim to bring you the best innovative tech within the short-term rental industry through quality partnerships, so who better to join forces with than Google?
Here at Uplisting, our mission is to help you scale your short-term rental business sustainably with our all-in-one property management solution, which connects you to the leading technology and tools to decrease inefficiencies and boost profitability.
The integration means our members will be able to list their short-term rental properties on Google. The search engine giant launched Google Vacation Rentals in 2019, after seeing success with its Google Travel platform. This feature allows prospective guests to browse short-term rentals alongside hotels on the platform and on Google Maps.
The platform organically ranks the most appropriate property through filters for accommodation type, location, price, and amenities - giving each and every listing the opportunity to sit at the top of the search results. This represents a significant step forward in leveling the playing field between short-term rentals and hotels, as well as between direct bookings and online travel agencies (OTAs).
We’re thrilled to offer this integration to our customers. Uplisting member properties will be automatically published on the booking platform, and become discoverable on Search and Maps. These listings will display real-time prices for the searcher's date range, along with availability and restrictions. Guests can then book and pay directly through highly converting booking pages.
Property managers with less than 5000 properties can only list on Google Vacation Rentals through an approved connectivity partner such as Uplisting.
Vince Breslin, co-founder of Uplisting commented: “Demand for short-term rentals is at an all-time high, and growing fast. But it’s a busy marketplace. We want to do all we can to help our customers grow their businesses in this increasingly competitive space. And to do this it is vital that they are visible. Partnering with Google Vacation Rentals ensures member properties are visible at a global scale and are in a position to compete directly with the leading OTAs at the point where guests are searching for accommodation. We’re excited to partner with Google Vacation Rentals to increase revenue for our members and enable them to continually exceed their growth expectations.”
We’ve built an all-in-one property, channel management and automation tool to help property managers scale seamlessly.
