Booking.com is an online accommodation booking website started as a small start-up in Enschede in 1996, based inAmsterdam, Netherlands and since 2005 owned and operated by United States based Priceline. Its operations centre is located in Bellevue, WA, USA.
Booking.com claims to have over 700,000 properties globally under contract and that it deals with more than 900,000 room nights reservations each day. In 2013, it accounted for more than two thirds of Priceline’s revenue. Booking.com is available in more than 41 languages.
In 2012, the United Kingdom’s Office of Fair Trading found that Booking.com may have been limiting price competition for short term accommodation by including unlawful restrictions in its agency contracts.
