What is the Partner Referral Program?

Our Partner Referral Program lets you refer friends to list their property on Booking.com, then save money on your own commission as a reward. Plus, your friends get to save on their commission, too.

For each friend you refer, both you and that friend are eligible to receive 5 commission-free bookings (up to a maximum value of EUR 200*).

You'll be rewarded for the first 10 friends who list their properties and receive a booking. This means you can receive a total reward of up to EUR 2000* in commission-free bookings.

*Depending on your region, the value of your reward may vary and/or be paid out as the equivalent amount in local currency.

How do I refer friends and earn my reward?

To get your unique referral link and share it with your friends, just follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Extranet.
  2. Click the Opportunities tab.
  3. Click Commission-free bookings.
  4. Copy your unique referral link.
  5. Send the link to friends or accommodation providers you know.

You can also share your referral link on social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn to reach a wider network. Just remember to mention that their first 5 bookings will be commission-free.

Then your friends or colleagues can use your referral link to register and list their properties on Booking.com. Don't worry – your unique referral link is tracked by our system, so you and your friend will definitely get rewarded.

To be eligible for this offer, your friend needs to finish registering and make their property bookable within 30 days of starting the process.

Once your friend’s property is live and bookable, they have 90 days to receive their first booking. If their property is booked by then, both you and your friend will be eligible to receive 5 commission-free bookings for up to a maximum value of EUR 200 (or the equivalent amount based on your region and/or currency).

When you get 5 commission-free bookings per referred property (up to 10 properties) or earn your maximum commission savings, you'll be ineligible to earn any more rewards through the program. But you can still refer new friends, and they'll still get commission-free bookings when they join.

What type of property can I refer?

You can refer friends who have apartments, houses, B&Bs, campsites, and more. On Booking.com, you can list any type of property for any length of time, whether it’s available all year or only when the owner is away on vacation.

When do I get my commission savings?

You’ll get and pay your monthly invoice as usual. Then we'll give you credit separately to cover your commission savings for a month-long period (max. EUR 200 or equivalent amount based on region and/or currency) per referred property (max. 10 properties).

You can see the details of your commission-free bookings under the Reservations tab, or in the Commission-free bookings section under the Opportunities tab.
