Frequently asked questions.
A hotel booking engine is an application on hotel websites and social media pages to capture and process direct online reservations. It is a key solution for driving bookings that don’t rely on third party channels such as online travel agents.
While a channel manager helps manage and oversee your connected booking channels, your booking engine will act as one of the channels being managed. When it comes to updating rates and managing reservations in your channel manager, the booking engine will sit alongside other channels such as Airbnb or booking.com.
Metasearch sites are gaining ground on OTAs, and innovating in the process, and are winning popularity among travellers and hotel guests. With metasearch players like Google and TripAdvisor acting as both a place to market your property and accept bookings, it represents a real opportunity for your business. Properties connected to Google Hotel Ads received 16% more direct bookings than those who didn’t.
Google Hotel Ads is growing extremely quickly. Anywhere a user can be making travel-related decisions, Google surfaces hotel ads to help them evaluate the pricing and booking options available to them. Google Hotel Ads displays your hotel information such as availability and rates on Google Maps, Search and Assistant.
You can accept bookings via your hotel booking engine on your own hotel website as well as on your social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.
Guests will interact with your booking engine via a ‘Book now’ button on your website or social media sites. They will then be able to view available rooms and rates, and complete their reservation in a just a couple of simple steps.
