Google adds Vacasa to vacation rental search

September 05, 2019 / PhocusWire

In March, Google added vacation rental properties to its Hotel Search function, and its now adding the first vacation rental management brand to the mix through a partnership with Vacasa.Portland-based Vacasa, which bills itself as North America’s largest vacation rental management platform with 14,000 properties, joins the roster alongside existing partners such as Expedia, HomeAway, Vrbo, RedAwning and TripAdvisor.(Airbnb and Booking Holdings’ brands remain unintegrated with the function.)Through a direct API, travelers can search and book homes managed by Vacasa on Google. The vacation rentals appear in an interactive map alongside hotel results, and when a home is selected, the booking takes place on Vacasa’s website.
