Just read an interesting article on VRM Intel: SEO/SEM Disrupted: How Google Travel is Shaking up the Marketing Funnel


I'm wondering if the folks at OR are thinking about an integration with Google Travel API like the other PMS systems mentioned in the article ( MyVR, Guesty, Streamline, and Direct.io.)?

Yep, we're monitoring Google Travel and will develop an integration when it coalesces into a viable source of traffic. Like that article mentions, the vacation rental side of Google Travel is in the nascent stages and they're still changing a lot of things all the time and haven't solidified an offering or pricing model.

Right now, if you have channel integrations like VRBO/Airbnb/TripAdvisor/booking.com, you're already listed on Google Travel via those channels.

The list of other PMS's you mentioned from the article is a list of PMS's that haven't yet started building Google Travel integrations.
