Booking.com: Planet’s #1 Accommodation Site
From a small start-up to one of the
largest travel e-commerce
companies in the world
The great journey of Booking.com started in 1996 by Dutch entrepreneur Geert-Jan Bruinsma with a great idea to connect guests and hotels. From a small office in Amsterdam Booking.com is now a part of The Priceline Group (NASDAQ: PCLN) and employs more than 15,000 employees in 198 offices in 70 countries worldwide.
