Bookings is changing its name to Booking.com.
According to the company, this is due to rapid international expansion highlighting the need for a name that is easily spelt, pronounced and recognised in all key markets, hence dropping the S and adding .com.
Bookings was founded in Amsterdam ten years ago and has swiftly grown to become one of Europe’s leading online hotel reservation companies, with 12 offices in 10 countries.
Stef Norden, CEO of Booking.com stated: “Our aim is to be as close to our customers as possible. Therefore, we have invested in local offices, developed a website that is available in numerous languages and expanded our multilingual customer services team. Booking.com also features customer hotel reviews to enable visitors to make informed choices. So apart from the name change, everything stays the same.”
Booking.com offers more than 20,000 hotels in over 6,000 destinations world wide. As the site has simple search facilities, customers can easily find the right hotel, whether seeking a small family guesthouse or a five star luxury property.
