In light of COVID-19, please review the latest announcement regarding the Reserve with Google guidelines for supporting users and merchants during this time. Additionally, since we are operating with a limited support team, it may take longer to connect with us. Thank you for your patience, and we value your partnership.

Adding ticket options

Ticket option description allow multiple ticket types to be listed under the same service but are grouped together by a shared attribute. For example, tour languages and/or add-ons can be specified as ticket options using the option description. When a user selects an option, all of their tickets must be purchased under that option (for example, they would not be able to buy one tour under English and another in Spanish).

When to use ticket options

Ticket options allow users to select from a list of options or add-ons that are applicable to an order. The options selected should apply to all tickets in that order.

Examples of ticket options

  • Rental duration (1h, 2h, ...)
  • Language selection for audio guide for the tour (e.g. English Audio Guide, Spanish Audio Guide, Chinese Audio Guide)
  • Add-ons
    • Temporary exposition of a museum
    • Meal option
    • Transportation
    • Audio guide

Examples of incorrect usage of ticket options

  • Pick up location: Use intake form instead
  • Time of departure: Use availability instead
  • General information about the experience: Use service description instead

If your use case is not clearly included in the list of use cases supported by ticket options, please ask your Google contact.

How to implement ticket options

When the user clicks on the radio button representing this localized_option_description (localized), the front-end will only display all the available ticket types that have the selected localized_option_description value.

Guidelines

Example

In this example, the "Future and Beyond Museum" provides audio guided tours. This option can be either in English or in French.
