Booking.com is an aggregator website which collects information on travel accommodation and provides a service by which online clients compare properties and make reservations.
Based in Holland, Booking.com has grown into a multinational company with a huge market share in online travel reservations. It is part of the U.S. based Priceline Group, which operates a number of similar booking websites such as Agoda.com, Rentalcars.com, Kayak, and OpenTable.
CEO Gillian Tans was named one of the 50 Most Inspirational Women in Dutch Technology by organization Inspiring Fifty and has expanded the company from its base in Amsterdam to open offices in over a hundred countries, with over 10,000 employees.
With over a million properties in 225 countries and bookings of 1,200,000 rooms per day, the company certainly has some impressive numbers behind it.
Booking.com Background Information
Originally founded as bookings.nl by Dutch entrepreneur Geert-Jan Bruinsma in 1997, the site achieved success in the Netherlands. However, it wasn’t until a merger with website Bookings Online in the year 2000, that Booking.com was formed.
The company was acquired by The Priceline Group in 2005 in a move labeled “the best acquisition in Internet history” by hotelmarketing.com since it took Priceline from a financial loss into a period of significant profits.
Booking.com is an online platform for accommodation comparison which allows customers to book properties including hotels, B&B’s, guesthouses, villas, resorts, and apartments. The website does not provide any accommodation itself but acts to list a variety of property options so that customers can easily compare prices, facilities, locations etc., before eventually making a reservation.
Each Booking.com listing includes information about the property such as the available facilities and relevant policies. Photos are also provided, as are price comparisons for different room types and information on the location. Tenants are encouraged to leave reviews based on their experiences staying at the property to give customers a genuine insight into the venue. Information is also displayed on the popularity of the property, how regularly it is booked and a value rating.
The site additionally provides travel information on tourist destinations, primarily based on accommodation, but also with some extra information on attractions, airport locations and so on. Customers can browse city guides to find out about local weather, travelers reviews, restaurants, transportation and so on. Properties can be viewed according to their proximity to certain tourist attractions, as well as the usual parameters such as price and type.
As part of the Priceline Group, Bookings.com collaborates with its sister websites to provide services for car rentals (with rentalcars.com) and flight booking (via booking.kayak.com)
Operating completely as an online service, Booking.com also offers a free app which can be downloaded onto any mobile device from the website.
Calls to 02 numbers are charged at the local rate

Booking.com Frequently Asked Questions
Can I cancel my booking?
Yes, you are free to cancel your booking at any time. Booking.com doesn’t charge a fee for cancellations, but individual hotels may, so charges will differ according to the location at which you booked. Some properties are listed as non-refundable, while others allow free cancellation, so check this before making your reservation. You can find your hotel’s cancellation policy in your booking confirmation.
Can I make changes to my booking?
Most of the time, yes. While date changes can’t be made on non-refundable bookings, depending on the property’s policy, most other bookings can accommodate changes to dates, times and any room requests. Before reserving a property, check the policy to see whether it is non-refundable or allows changes and cancellations. Make changes through your confirmation email, or use the booking.com contact telephone number.
