Good day

I would like to make use of the Google booking system on a pay per reservation system, not pay per click...thus commission based

I have googled my webpage, I can access the review but the booking tab is not active.

please advise on accessing this service, payment methods and safety of online payment for my guests.

I would also like to know how to activate the calendar on my webpage as well as this is linked to the above question

Many thanks

Kind regards

Chrystelle

afaik the booking links Google shows for hotels, guesthouses or B&B are always from genuine Booking platforms and not at all provided through Google.

Will nevertheless escalate this thread to our CM of Google

 

FMOP:

a general question regarding booking

Hi @Chrystelle G

 

As @Helmut Geissler mentioned these are from 3rd party booking sites.

 

The way it works, is you would register your hotel with them and if you have a booking system, they can integrate with your system.

 

They market, make bookings and take an agreed upon % on the sale.

 

However I see you are already registered with a few ?

 

Try Booking.com  >> This OTA aggregates information / booking dates to Google

Almost forgot, you can also use new Schema markup on your website to denote reservation systems.

You will need to get your developer to look at the markup

Thank you so much for your feedback. Yes, I am with a few sites but I was advised that this route generates a lot more traffic and bookings. As we are a country destination, I need more exposure at as little cost as possible. Kind regards Chrystelle
