This is because ads that aren’t using the pinpoint map feature won’t appear in Map view searches and will only show in the List view.
Location is the deciding factor for many people when booking a holiday. You need to make it easy for them to see how far your place is from local facilities and attractions such as the beach, airport, museums, theme parks and restaurants. It’s especially worthwhile adding a pin for travellers who are planning a stay for a specific reason, such as a wedding, so they can check how close your place is to the action.
It’s really important that travellers can find your advert, however they choose to search our site, and it’s as easy as pie to add a pin:
- Go to Properties > Update location info in your account
- Zoom in and click to pin your place on the map
- Click Save
If you don’t want to give your property’s exact location, you can show the general area so potential guests still have enough info to make a booking. Just check the tick box: Don’t show travellers the pin on the map.
And remember: your property’s address details will never be published on your ad or shared with travellers who don’t have a confirmed booking.
A pinpoint map tempts travellers and boosts bookings
When you’ve pinned your place on the map, travellers looking at your ad can easily see nearby attractions and restaurants. They can take a look at them on TripAdvisor and get more info. Seeing what there is to do in the area can be the difference between them looking elsewhere or making a booking with you.
