How does Booking.com work?



Are you interested in joining over 870,000 properties already live on Booking.com?

Booking.com BV (“Booking.com”) provides online reservation services. Booking.com acts as an intermediary (agent) between guests wanting to make an online hotel reservation and you offering rooms.

The agreement and transaction is directly between you and the guest. Unlike other accommodation reservation websites, Booking.com is not a contracting party in the transaction between the property and the guest. The guest pays the room rate to you after his/her stay or earlier in case of a non-refundable booking. The property does have an agreement with Booking.com for using the online platform and pays Booking.com a certain commission which is invoiced after the guest checks out.

Here are some of the benefits of signing up to our global online reservation platform:

1. It’s easy to join us

You tell us about your property — add your property details, your photos and set up your payment policies and your own prices.

As soon as this is confirmed, you can set your property live yourself — and you’ll be ready to start receiving reservations straight away.

2. We’ll tell the world about you

At Booking.com we advertise to a global audience in 42 languages, 365 days a year.

Once you’ve signed up, your property will be advertised on search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, plus you’ll also have exposure to our 12,000+ affiliate partner websites.

3. Instant bookings

All bookings made through Booking.com are confirmed immediately. We’ll also provide a clear overview of your upcoming reservations.

4. Guest reviews

Guests can share their experience with potential new customers. These reviews will show you what guests love about your property, as well as areas that could be improved in order to boost your business.
