Tourism as a Force for Good

With a mission to empower people to experience the world, at we want to give our customers the best possible experience in every destination they travel to.

For the past four years we have contributed to improving destinations all over the world by volunteering our time and expertise through the Booking Cares Volunteer Programme. Our 15,000+ employees have been making a difference by partnering with local organisations that are working on sustainable tourism initiatives all across the globe.

In 2017, we launched the Booking Booster Programme, which brought 10 top scale-ups to Amsterdam in order to support the development of their businesses and growth plans over the course of three intensive weeks. With our new Booster Labs, we are taking our Booking Booster on the road - with programmes taking place in Europe, Asia, the Middle-East and North America - in order to support early startups in a condensed weekend format.

We believe that by supporting startups and scale-ups at different stages in their journeys and by offering the right kind of guidance and assistance when they need it most, we can work together toward a more sustainable future for the global tourism industry.

Tourism has delivered enormous benefits to communities all over the world. It has helped bring millions out of poverty and contributed to increased understanding between diverse people and cultures in every corner of the globe. Because we want to ensure it continues to do so in the future, we're looking for ventures that are supporting local communities in the tourism industry, businesses that help relieve pressure on overcrowded tourist areas and startups that positively impact the environment.
