On a journey to transform LGBTQ+ travel

Three ways we’re making it easier for LGBTQ+ travelers to experience the world

Using the right language in every interaction

We’re making Booking.com more welcoming for everyone by making sure we use language that’s inclusive. In most cases, you no longer need to choose a gendered title when booking accommodations. And when you create a profile, you'll have a wider range of gender options.

Helping properties offer an inclusive stay

When you see a Proud Certified property, you can be sure you’ll feel welcome, no matter who you are or whom you love. To qualify, at least one team member at the property needs to complete the Proud Hospitality training we developed with inclusive hospitality experts HospitableMe.

Highlighting Proud Certified properties

Our dedicated city pages showcase the Proud Certified properties in those cities, where LGBTQ+ travelers can count on an inclusive stay. We’re starting with city pages for Amsterdam, Berlin, and Manchester, and plan to expand globally soon.

Everyone deserves to experience the world as they are. That’s why we’re committed to making it easier for everyone to Travel Proud.
