How does Booking.com work?

Are you interested in joining over over one million properties already live on Booking.com?

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 own prices and payment policies.

Once 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.


Good to know

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.

It’s important to remember that the agreement and transaction is made directly between you and the guest. Unlike other accommodation reservation websites, Booking.com is not a contracting party in the transaction between your property and the guest.

The guest pays the room rate to you after their stay, or earlier in the case of a non-refundable booking. You have an agreement with Booking.com for using the online reservation platform and you have to pay Booking.com a certain commission amount, which is sent to you in an invoice after the guest checks out.
