Back to the future with GoogleWe’ve partnered with Google, to serve our hotel partners organic listings with exact Availability, Rates, and Inventory
On the 9th of March 2021, Google announced the introduction of free organic listings to augment their Google Hotel Ads offerings. The policy change is highly valuable to hotels, improving greatly their ability to drive organic low cost and direct bookings, a channel that is ideal through cooperation with AeroGuest as a technology partner.
Through direct integration to your existing channel manager TravelClick, RateTiger, SmartHOTEL, d-edge, or SiteMinder we can serve your exact Availability, Rates, and Inventory (ARI) through optimal OTA (Open Travel Alliance) XML Push.
OTA XML Push was simultaneously introduced by Google on the 9th of March to greatly improve the connection through increased bandwidth and real-time rates and prices, resulting in an increased ratio of organic bookings as compared to the previous PULL method. We support this integration method from day 1.
