Booking Holdings is the world’s leading provider of online travel and related services, provided to consumers and local partners in more than 220 countries and territories through six primary consumer-facing brands: Booking.com, Priceline, Agoda, Rentalcars.com, KAYAK and OpenTable, as well as through a network of subsidiary brands including Rocketmiles, Fareharbor, HotelsCombined, Cheapflights and Momondo, bringing greater value to both our customers and partners around the world.

Making It Easier for Everyone to Experience the World.

At Booking.com, our mission is to make it easier for everyone to experience the world. We’re not only passionate about connecting travellers with their ideal stay, but with powering their overall travel experience from beginning to end. Everything we do at Booking.com supports that goal to help our customers discover and enjoy the world and our partners to grow their businesses via our platform. 

We measure success not by the value that we create for our company but by the positive impact we create for all of our stakeholders – our employees, stockholders, customers, partners, communities and governments.

We believe that travel is a force for good in the world, with the power to empower entrepreneurs and their communities as well as open minds, increase understanding and acceptance.
