About Google Things to do
With the close-out of Reserve with Google, Google came back to boost the travel industry with new “Things to do” for Tours, Activity and Attraction industry. However, “Google Things to do” is currently available for attractions only and this roll out is only on Mobile, for now. For example – Museums, National Parks, Zoos & Aquariums. As far as we know, “Things to do” will also be available for Tours & Activity by the end of this year.
How Google Things to do works?
When guests search for an attraction in google search on mobile, A business listing of attraction will appear on the Google search results. There is a [Tickets] tab of attraction listing, under that tab there is a list of links to the attraction website and OTAs along with the prices. The first link for “In-person tickets” belongs to the “Booking system website”of the operator. When guests click on the link from the listings they will be redirected to the operator’s website where guests can book the attraction.
How you can be part of it?
