Property verification code


I would like to active my listing (go live), but cant I am currently not at my property and in a different province and can therefore not receive the verification code.  Also, there is postal deliveries to street addresses in where my listed property is in South Africa.

Please advise urgently.

Hi Mariette Venter! Thank you for posting in the Community!

Since we have millions of properties and guests around the world, it’s important that the information we show on Booking.com is 100% accurate.

Our primary focus is to ensure that every property on our website is genuine, whether that’s in a remote rural area or a popular urban destination.

The verification code is delivered by regular mail and you can pick it up later, once you get to your property. Maybe, it is also possible for your friend or a relative to pick up the letter at the property location and pass it to you.

Best regards
