Booking.com is on a mission – to empower people to experience the world. The site works to take the friction out of travel, making travel easier for all.
From a small Dutch start-up based in Amsterdam, booking.com has grown. It is now one of the largest travel e-commerce companies in the world.
The travel metasearch engine connects travellers to the largest selection of accommodation. There is a wide range too, so there’s something for every travel type. Apartments, luxury 5-star hotels, hostels, family-run B&Bs, even tree houses and igloos can all be found on this accommodation site. There are over 27 million listings, covering over 144 thousand destinations in over 200 countries. You are literally spoilt for choice.
But don’t worry, you won’t be overwhelmed! Once you select your dates and destination you can easily filter your search to certain types of properties, budgets and facilities. It’s an easy to use search engine. There are no booking fees and many properties have flexibility. Plus you can be confident that your booking is secure and the site offers a “best price guarantee”.
The default setting when you search is ‘Top Picks’. These picks are chosen by an ever-changing and evolving automated system. You can change the settings to search via price, distance from city centre or customer reviews. All the facilities are listed for each listing and a selection of rooms, if applicable.
But Booking.com isn’t just about the accommodation. You can also book flights, flight & hotel packages, car rental and private transfers.
So no matter what you are looking for, Booking.com has you covered. If you’re a budget traveller looking for a hostel, you can find it on booking.com, or if you’re more into luxury spas, you can find them on the site too.
