Join a new era of distribution

Choose the best Channel Manager for Google Travel to revolutionize your distribution mix

Google has been the first search engine, who built out their own travel search destination platform, called Google Travel. It consists of multiple sub-products like Google Flights, Explore, Things to Do, but most importantly for you of course Google Hotels and Google Vacation Rentals. NextPax is one of the preferred providers to provide a connection either for Google Hotels or Google Vacation Rentals. Did you know Google Travel is offering these products to accommodation partners for free?

Why choose NextPax as a channel manager to list your accommodations on either Google Hotels or Google Vacation Rentals?

Preferred Technology Partner

Google Travel has awarded us as Preferred Technology Partner for both the Google Hotels and Google Vacation Rental product. We have seamlessly integrated with all their API’s to ensure a state of the art connection

It’s about YOUR brand

Our first aim is to advertise your brand within Google’s product. We are capable of redirecting Google’s traveler, either directly to your own website, or to our Direct Booking Page which we customize with your branding. Aside from that, we are the only player that can work with sub-brands in Google’s products itself, making sure your name and your logo is out there

Use your own Cancellation and Prepayment Policy

NextPax Travel Technology has the opportunity to provide your own cancellation and prepayment policy towards Google. This is a huge advantage in our Google connection, and a competitive advantage for them overall – as they allow accommodation partners to distribute under their own policies towards the Google Travel’s audience

Onboarding Solution

Once your accommodations are loaded in our channel management system, we can distribute your data to Google Travel within minutes. After a check-procedure on Google’s end you will see your accommodations within 48 hours live on their products. Did you know we already provide Google connectivity for over 250.000 accommodations?

Upload your Reviews

With Google Travel, you have the opportunity to provide reviews that you have sourced yourself – either from your own brand.com website or offline. You can upload these reviews via us towards either Google Hotels or Google Vacation Rentals

Diverse Pricing Solutions

Through NextPax you are able to set a diverse range of pricing solutions for Google. We do operate on a Length of Stay model with Vrbo, which enables you to set prices for any length of stay, any stay date and for each occupancy. Also we can let Google know which taxes or additional fees are payable on location of the property

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We can still upload your accommodations to either Google Hotels or Google Vacation Rentals and take it from there. We will then redirect the travellers onto a NextPax Booking Form, which you by the way can customize with your own logo and company details. From there it will become an API booking into your software.

If we redirect to your brand.com page your existing payment methods you have for your guests at your own website will apply. If you are working with our NextPax Booking Page, you either have the opportunity to ask for the traveller credit cards or send a payment link afterwards. Please note that in order to enable the traveller credit card functionality, you have to be PCI DSS compliant or work with one of our integrated payment providers
