Both platforms can help you ensure that all your bookings are automatically synced across multiple channels, so you don’t have to worry about double bookings and manually updating prices. However, only Hospitable partners with Google Vacation Rentals enabling you to list your direct booking website on Google Travel. They come with reporting features and iCal support, allow giving limited or full access to team members, and have integrations with smart pricing tools and smart locks.
