This is how you get a discount on Booking.com

The most used site for hotel bookings is for sure Booking.com. A large part of your travel costs will therefore probably end up with this provider. Let’s look into some smart ways to get a discount on Booking.com.

#1 Get a higher status in the loyalty program

Booking.com rewards loyal users with its loyalty program. Once you’ve already made (and of course used them) two bookings within two years, you will receive the first status (Genius Level 1). You already get a 10% discount on accommodations that are affiliated with the Genius program!

Will you make 5 bookings within the first two years? Then you’ll get the Genius Level 2 and you can count on a 15% discount and often some free breakfast as well with the affiliated accommodations.

#2 Get 10% back on your first stay with this link

Even if you have not been using Booking.com for a long time, you can still benefit! If you book your first stay – so the first booking with your e-mail address – you can score a 10% discount. How? By using this link!

Tip: did you know that you can rent out your house through Booking.com to earn some extra holiday budget as well? Register with this link and you don’t have to pay any commission on the first 5 bookings!

#3 Use a free discount voucher

You can find voucher for a substantial discount on your booking with Booking.com in magazines quite often. So it is worth looking for such a voucher if you are about to book a place to sleep. Just look through your latest magazines or ask your friends if they happen to have an unused voucher. As our dear friends know that we travel a lot, we often get a message from them with another voucher.

#4 Search online for temporary discount deals

The vouchers generally have unique codes and can therefore only be used once. General codes that can be used multiple times are often shared online. It is therefore smart to search online for ‘discount Booking.com’ or ‘discount code Booking.com’ before you make a booking. These discounts are often listed here, here en here.
