Cost-per-click (CPC) bids can be placed via the Booking Network Sponsored Ads portal and start from $0.50. Placements are given to the highest and most relevant bidders. Relevant criteria are based on factors such as the property’s location and classification. 

Partners can customise their audience reach through extensive targeting possibilities. If you win a sponsored ad auction, your listing will be visible to potential bookers across our networks, including Priceline and Agoda.

Our reporting capabilities allow you to keep track of this and more.
