Google Hotel Ads (GHA)
Attract direct bookings by displaying website rates dynamically on the first page of the Google search results page and compete directly with online travel agents.
Google Hotel Ads gives your property the best chance of appearing in the top four paid booking links in the traditional ads location on the first page of the search results.
Bookings made through this link will attract a commission fee, which is flexible and can be adjusted to give your property the best results at the lowest possible commission level.
Only pay commission on bookings which result in guests actually staying at your property with the Pay Per Stay (PPS) program, giving you greater control of your property’s revenue.
