We turn our global audience into your guests
We’re proud to be the world’s number one accommodation site for bookings, with more than 1.5 million room nights are booked on Booking.com every single day.

We also promote your property to travellers planning trips through our 17,500+ affiliate partners.

- Continuous innovation that brings in more business
By running over 1,000 experiments on our website every day, we offer travellers worldwide a seamless, localised experience. This also benefits your business because we present your property in a way that attracts the most guests, and let you set expectations by providing details about your property, location, amenities and nearby attractions. You also get a steady income, thanks to a simple and easy process where bookings are instantly confirmed.
- Verified guest reviews
We have a dedicated team that verifies guest reviews to make sure they’re legitimate. These trustworthy reviews add to your credibility and influence other potential guests to choose your property. Reviews also provide insights that can help you improve your guests’ experience.
- How does payment work between us?
Booking.com works with a commission-based model, meaning that you pay us a set percentage on each reservation made through our website. Information about the exact commission you pay is shown at the ‘Agreement’ stage of the registration process.
