Booking.com Affiliate Program: Recommend Best Stays and get Rewarded

Booking.com is an online flight, hotel/property, activity, car rentals, and airport taxi booking website and app. As a Booking.com Affiliate Marketer, you need to promote hotels or properties to your target audience, and get a sale in order to earn a commission. There are many cool widgets available which will make your task easier. Booking.com is one of the largest travel booking companies with properties in almost every corner of the world.    

Booking.com Affiliate Program Commission Rates 2023

The booking.com affiliate program commission here is upto 18.75%-22.50% per Sale, but the catch here is that this rate is on the commission Booking.com makes from the hotel or property, and not on the sale amount. For instance, the sale amount is ₹5000 where 15% is Booking.com’s commission i.e. ₹750, so your commission will be ₹169 (max). Thus, for a ₹5000 sale, you make around ₹170. Booking.com’s commission depends on the hotel so may keep on changing. 

Booking.com Affiliate Examples

Booking.com affiliate examples include Map Widget, Search Box, Inspiring Search Box, Deals Finder, Banners, and WordPress Plugins. The map widget shows hotel prices of different locations in an area. Deals Finder gets the best hotel offers available on Booking.com. You can use these to get your audience a better understanding of the offerings with loads of excitement.   

Booking.com Affiliate Requirements

You need to have an online travel & accommodations related platform to opt-in for the Booking.com affiliate program. You can also apply if some of your sections have Booking.com related content. However, if there is no link then it's better to avoid the Booking.com affiliate program as chances of conversion will be very slim. 

Booking.com Affiliate Program Review

The Booking.com affiliate program is dependable for timely payments and proper tracking. However, the cookie duration here is very less. Also, it may have a session based tracking which means that if a user visits Booking.com via you, and doesn’t book then you lose the opportunity. Thus, pitch it such that it meets users requirements bang-on i.e. narrow (best ones only) hotel options. 
Payout rates are good, but counts on Booking.com’s commission which lowers it a lot. A good thing here is widgets which are unique, useful, and attractive. One of the major drawbacks here is that the Booking.com affiliate promo codes are not accepted as today hotel bookers have a knack of using them for savings. Therefore, all-in-all, the Booking.com affiliate program is good but better to use it during travel seasons to monetize higher. It will be great if they also include flight bookings in their affiliate program.   

How does Booking.com Affiliate Program Work?

Your users need to visit Booking.com and make hotel/property bookings for you to earn via the Booking.com affiliate program. The commission percentage will be counted on Booking.com’s commission instead of the sale amount. After the sale, it will be validated and then confirmed (customer’s stay is completed), after which you will receive the payment.  

Booking.com Affiliate Promo Code details

There are many Booking.com affiliate promo codes available, but the company doesn’t allow them. Thus, if your user uses any then you will not be paid.

Note: The Booking.com Affiliate Marketing Program T&Cs are subject to change anytime so always check for the latest details.
