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.

Our Values

‘What’ we do at Booking.com is just as important as ‘how’ we do it. We don’t only measure success by what we achieve for our company, but also in how we have achieved it for all of our stakeholders – our employees, customers, partners and the communities around us. 

And everything we do starts from our values, from every line of code to every customer interaction.

Think customer first
We obsess about adding value for our customer – guests, partners, colleagues – to make it easier for everyone to experience the world.
Succeed together
We celebrate team success, through making connections, building trust and valuing the diverse perspectives of others.
Own it
We deliver on our promises, make informed decisions and prioritize to get the important things done today.
Learn forever
We are resilient, take time to reflect, and seek to learn – from colleagues, from the outside world and from our failures.
Do the right thing
We get the right results the right way. For each other, our communities and the world around us.

We are resilient, take time to reflect, and seek to learn – from colleagues, from the outside world and from our failures.
