Our Property Referral Program explained

Updated 10 months ago | 5 min read

Our Property Referral Program lets you refer friends to list their properties on Booking.com – and save money on your own commission as a reward. On top of that, your friends get to save on their commission, too. 

The Property Referral Program is only available in the United States, Australia, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and for select partners.


  • You can check if you’re eligible for the Property Referral Programme by following these steps:

    1. Sign in to the extranet.
    2. Click on Boost performance.
    3. Go to Commission-free bookings. If the option doesn’t appear, it means you’re not eligible at this time. Please stay tuned as we roll out the option to more countries.
  • To get your unique referral link and share it with your friends, just follow these steps:

    1. Sign in to the extranet
    2. Click on Boost performance
    3. Select Commission-free bookings
    4. Copy the unique link provided
    5. Send the link to friends or accommodation providers you know

    Alternatively, you can share the referral link on social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn to reach a wider network.

  • Your friends can then use your referral link to start their registration process and list their property on our platform. Your unique referral link is tracked by our system, so you can be sure that you and your friend will receive your rewards.

    To be eligible, they need to complete their registration 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 this happens both you and your friend are eligible to receive five commission-free bookings.

    Once you reach five commission-free bookings per referred property (max. 10 properties) or earn your maximum commission savings, you’ll no longer be eligible for programme rewards. However, you can continue to refer new friends, as they can still receive their commission-free bookings when they join.

  • You’ll receive and pay your monthly invoice as normal. Then, within one month we’ll issue separate credit notes to cover your commission savings, up to a maximum value of €200 (or equivalent amount based on region and/or currency) per referred property (max. 10 properties).

    If you’re eligible, you can view the details of your commission-free bookings in your Reservations menu, or in the Commission-free bookings section of your Boost performance menu.
