How to create a listing on Booking.com

Updated August 20, 2021

 

In this guide, we’ll provide step-by-step instructions on how to create a listing on Booking.com!

 

The Booking.com website and mobile apps are available in 43 languages, offer over 6.2M properties and cover over 148,000 destinations in 226 countries and territories worldwide.

Booking.com has two completely separate platforms for travelers (to book their vacation) and property owners (to list their property/ies). As such, one can use the same email address to register in each platform (with “the same” or different passwords) or, of course, use different emails for each account.

So visit this page to create a listing of your property on Booking .com

STEP 1: Basic information

After you’ve entered your First Name, Last Name, and e-mail address on the sign-up page, you are prompted to enter some basic information about your property/listing, including:

  • Property name
  • Property type
  • Total number of rooms
  • Property website (optional)
  • Your role with the property listing
  • Address of the property, and
  • Contact number

⭐ Be very careful with the address and location pin, updating an inaccurate address can be challenging. You might also run the risk of redoing it from the beginning. ⭐

Step 2: Property Setup

In here, you should add some general details about your property like sleeping arrangement (number of guests, bedrooms, beds, bathrooms), facilities available (kitchen, internet, view, parking), if you serve breakfast, the languages you speak, and house rules.

STEP 3: Photos

As Booking.com suggests, guests are more likely to book places with great photos, so upload some high-resolution photos that accurately represent all your space has to offer.

Including photos of all the spaces a guest can use (i.e. living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, additional rooms) helps guests imagine staying at your place. Choosing the right profile photo (more on that in our next article on building the perfect vacation rental listing).

Note that you can upload as many photos as you want but they’ll publish only the first 45.

STEP 4: Pricing & Calendar

Depending on the type of property you selected previously, you will be prompted to provide additional information, including:

  • Can you charge with a credit card on-site?
  • How much do you want to earn per night?
  • Rate plans (standard and non-refundable) and cancellation policy
  • Availability- to make sure that you won’t get any double bookings, you can count on us!

After Booking.com is finished reviewing your property, they will send you an email and inform you whether your listing has been approved. If it is, they will include your Property ID and inform you that you will receive another email with a link to create a secure password in order to access and use your Booking.com property dashboard.
