Important update: Google Hotel Search integration ending

Dear Community,

We understand that the Google Hotel Search integration is a valuable tool for many of you. It helps boost your visibility on Google and drives more direct bookings to your property. That's why we want to let you know about an important change coming soon. 

What's happening? 

As of July 1st, 2024, Google will stop supporting its integration with Mews. This means that the current Google Hotel Search connection on Mews Marketplace will no longer work. 

Unfortunately, this is Google's decision, and it's not something Mews can control. 

Why is this happening? 

Google hasn't given us a specific reason. They've simply decided to stop supporting integrations like the one with Mews. Rest assured; this isn't targeted specifically at Mews. 

What are we doing about it? 

If you're using Google Hotel Search through Mews, the integration will end on July 1st. But don't worry, you can still get visibility on Google through our partners: Cendyn, D-EDGE, and Triptease. These are paid options, but they offer more advanced tools to drive bookings.

Hello Femke, my self I didn't work with any of them before, so do you have any feedback about Triptease? Any advice? 

My google hotel search integration is still working? What should I expect? When will it stop?

Hello @somewhereinnjoel!

the integration is already offline from our side, but your account might be available with outdated information until you connect via another partner or remove your listing.

Our suggestion is to disable and delete the integration as the data is no longer accurate.

Thank you!
