API Integrations - Google Vacation Rentals Overview

OwnerRez has partnered with Google Vacation Rentals (GVR) to provide an integrated API connection between the two systems. This allows OwnerRez users to handle their GVR listings and bookings efficiently. 

Unlike Airbnb and Vrbo, GVR does not host a live booking engine but rather displays your property listing information from OwnerRez on GVR. All booking traffic from your GVR listing is directed to your OwnerRez Hosted Website or Global Landing Page for commission-free bookings.

Users can expect a delay of 2+ weeks before their properties go live on Google Vacation Rentals due to a manual onboarding process by Google Vacation Rentals.

About Google Vacation Rentals (GVR)

Millions of people worldwide use Google each day to plan their travels. Google Vacation Rentals (GVR) is a game-changer in the vacation rental industry because nearly every traveler visits Google at some point during their planning process. Guests rely on Google to research accommodations, share listings with their travel companions, and book their ideal lodging.

Integrating your property on GVR is one additional tool that can aid in generating direct bookings.

When your GVR listing appears in the search results, the number of clicks it takes for a potential customer to find your property and make a booking is reduced. Reducing the number of clicks required to book your property results in less friction and increased bookings. As a rental owner or property manager, you can gain unparalleled exposure for your listings, connect directly with potential guests, and drive more direct bookings.

See the Google Vacation Rentals Setup & Connecting support article to get started.

Google Price Accuracy Policy

All OwnerRez Google Vacation Rental (GVR) integrated properties are subject to Google's Price Accuracy PolicyGoogle computes a score for OwnerRez that provides ratings based on how often our GVR-integrated properties comply with Google's policy and is used as a basis for potential penalties (lower search rankings, delisting, etc.) Google may assess to OwnerRez.

What does this mean for OR users?

Rates listed on Google Vacation Rentals listings must match the rates of their OR Hosted Website or The OwnerRez Global Landing Page. The Price Accuracy of YOUR GVR-integrated property affects the score of ALL OwnerRez GVR-integrated properties.

  • There is almost no room or margin for error. Successful price matches are weighted at a smaller value than a penalty.
  • Penalties accumulate and remain for 90 days.
  • A single mistake applied across ten properties could cause OwnerRez and all OR's GVR-integrated properties to get delisted.
  • OwnerRez is responsible for maintaining Google's Price Accuracy Policy, which imposes collective penalties on all OwnerRez GVR-integrated properties based on the price accuracy failures of individual GVR listings.
