Mobile rates

Capture the fastest-growing segment of bookers

Over half of all bookings on Booking.com are made on mobile devices. By activating a mobile rate at your property, you can tap into this valuable and expanding traveler segment. All you have to do is offer an exclusive discount of 10% or higher for mobile users. Once you do this, a special badge will appear next to your property in search results and on your property page. This helps increase your visibility and can improve your conversion rate for mobile bookers.

Maximize app and mobile web users

When you offer a mobile rate, you can choose to target only iOS/Android app users, but you also have the option to include bookers using mobile browsers on their phones instead of the app. By offering both, you’ll reach a much larger audience:

  • A bigger target: Making your offer visible to Chrome, Safari, and other mobile browsers can help you reach 30% more users 
  • Brand-new bookers: First-time bookers use mobile browsers to book 7 times more often than those who choose to download the app
  • Repeat bookers: Repeat bookers gravitate to the convenience of booking within the downloadable app

By giving app and mobile users the option to see your mobile rates, you’ll reach new customers looking for their first great deal, as well as loyal bookers who come back time and time again. If you change your mind later, you can change this option anytime.

Offer combined mobile rates

How mobile rates work

  • Mobile rates are only visible to guests on mobile devices

  • A minimum 10% discount is recommended

  • Mobile rates apply to all your rooms and rate plans. The discount combines with discounts for the Genius program, as well as any other promotions you set up. However, it doesn’t add on to Country rates or Deal of the Day.

  • You can set up 30 black-out days per calendar year.
