Why does Booking.com verify property locations?

Updated 7 months ago

Since we have millions of properties and guests around the world, it’s important that the information shown on Booking.com is 100% accurate.

We market properties across multiple search engines and on affiliate websites, so it’s vital that we show guests the correct info right from the booking stage to ensure positive guest experiences and managed expectations. Our main focus is to make sure that every property on our website is genuine, whether it's in a remote rural area or a popular urban destination. Verification depends on the property's location and the owner’s access to it, so the process might take a little longer in some cases.

If we need help verifying your property, our support team will contact you to discuss it.
