How Booking Network Sponsored Ads work
Because most potential guests click on properties on the first page of the search results, we've reserved top placements on our website for Booking Network Sponsored Ads – for example, position two on Booking.com and Agoda and positions one and five on Priceline. In the Americas, position four is available on Booking.com.
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 customize 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. Your property will appear as an organic listing in search results with the addition of a sponsored “Ad” marker. You’ll only pay each time a traveler clicks on your ad. Our reporting capabilities allow you to keep track of this and more.
If your property is already ranked organically in the first or second position, we won’t show your ad and you won’t have to pay in this case.
