Book "Live" Reservations via Google Search

Cut Expedia Commisions...

LuxuryRes now connects to your Google search results. This connection allows guests to see your rates and to book a reservation directly on your Google Places Page without going to your website. This also helps you to point potential guests to

the low cost LuxuryRes Booking Engine instead of a high-commission Online Travel Agent. You can cut your distribution cost by more than 60%.

How it Works — How to Outsmart Your Competitors...

You already have a Google Places page. You or someone on your staff probably created it several years ago. Google provides this page to you for free, and then turns around and sells advertising to your competitors and Online Travel Agents (like Expedia.) Google puts those ads on your Places Page in 2 locations. The result is that many potential guests start by searching for your hotel and go to your Places Page. When they get there, they see ads from these competitors and often book a competitor instead of you. LuxuryRes helps you protect yourself from these competitors.

Increase Reservations & Cut Commissions...

LuxuryRes helps you redirect reservations from expensive online travel agents to your own booking engine. LuxuryRes provides Google with rate information via a connection to the LuxuryRes Control Center. Now, when a person goes to your Google Places Page, Google will display your rate info via the BOOK Button on that page. You will notice that Google already sells ads for the BOOK Button to Expedia, Travelocity, etc. so they can book reservations via your Places Page.

Your website is listed in the BOOK Button dropdown, but no price displays. LuxuryRes will connect to the BOOK Button and will display your pricing info to compete with Expedia, etc. This makes it easy for guests select your pricing info and book directly on the Place Page. Reservations are delivered to you via LuxuryRes’ normal reservation notifications.

More Bookings — No Extra Work for You...

This cuts several steps from the booking process so your guests are very happy. You save a lot of money, so your owner is happy too. All of the inventory displayed on Google is

derived from the Control Center. This means that there is no extra work for you or your staff. Everyone is happy.
