December 1, 2015 — Africa’s leading hotel-booking website Jovago has been incorporated into the renowned Google Hotels Ads. This strategic collaboration aims to ease the process of hotel search and reservation for travellers in Africa. This would allow Google users access to the best deals at any time and at their convenience, through the Jovago.com platform thus granting a diverse range of users the chance to find and book hotels across the African continent.
Our main focus is to give travellers a wide range of  accommodation options suited for every budget. We understand that it is sometimes very frustrating to find and book hotels of one’s specifications in particular destinations. This is why we partner with formidable search engines like Google to make the search experience stress-free and effective. With such a relationship, your perfect stay is always just one click away.” explains Claire Staal, Country Manager for Jovago Ghana.
With a colossal inventory of 25,000 hotels in Africa accessible to customers both on and offline, the hospitality and hotel industry is well provided for. Jovago.com is live on the Google platform with about around 3800  hotels with a lot more properties to be added from its large inventory.
Google’s initiative enables a wider range of users to click on the hotel listings directly from the search engine results page and giving them access to Jovago’s properties in Africa with a guarantee of best prices. This service is also integrated with Google Maps, which grants the user the ability to see the exact location of the selected hotel while doing a price comparison at the same time.

Following the launch of its mobile application - Jovago.com Hotels Booking on the Android platform, its incorporation on the Google platform for hotel search and booking would further improve the user experience for potential customers and increase touch points through which Jovago is bringing the hotel business online.
