Google Expands Travel Searches to Include Vacation Rental Properties

“In the hotel search experience, you can surface vacation rental properties—be it a cabin in Lake Tahoe or a beach house in Sydney—by applying the vacation rentals filter or clicking on the vacation rentals tip.”

Search results can be filtered by price and amenities. Just like searching for hotels, users can browse photos of rental properties and read reviews.

After selecting a check-in and check-out date, users can click “Book” to complete the reservation on the travel partner’s website.
