Designed with you in mind, this dedicated forum is where Booking.com customers can connect and share experiences, exchange knowledge – and boost their trip and stay.
We want this to be an open space to share ideas and participate in discussions, so don't forget to keep things friendly and considerate.
By the way, if you are an accommodation owner (or authorized employee of an accommodation), you obviously also can share very valuable information, experiences and destination knowledge. We encourage you to do so but do keep an eye on the below guidelines as they also apply to you.
Travel Communities is a space powered by users of the Booking.com platform. Use it to learn, share, and get tips from each other. By being inquisitive, open, and generous, anyone can combine their collective strengths and build a strong base of practical knowledge – not to mention a real sense of community.
When you’re using the forum, it’s good to keep some things in mind:
