Booking.com, the world leader in booking accommodation online, has signed its 10,000th property partner in Australia. In line with the opening of a second Australian office in Melbourne and a third planned for the Gold Coast, Booking.com continues to grow rapidly Down Under with the goal of connecting Australian properties with Australian and international travellers.
Opening their first Australian office in Sydney in 2008, Booking.com offers a wide-range of accommodation options, from high-end luxury resorts, independent B&B’s, farm stays, villas and more. On any given day, more than a million people around the globe book a room on Booking.com.
Giving Booking.com customers more variety and choice than ever before – whether solo travellers, couples, families or business travellers – the milestone highlights the platform’s fast-growth in the region.
“Hitting the 10,000 live properties milestone is proof of our commitment to ensuring our customers can find and book accommodation that fits their every need and desire, wherever in Australia they’re visiting,” said Alberto Yates, Booking.com’s Regional Manager for Oceania.
“It also highlights the value our accommodation partners find from being a part of Booking.com. With nearly 300,000 bookable rooms in Australia – an area equivalent to 421 cricket fields – we’re connecting guests with new places, from the traditional to the more unexpected and offering our hotels the world’s largest platform to attract guests from all over the globe,” he said.
Booking.com’s new Melbourne office, which has just opened in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, is another example of the dedication Booking.com has to providing quality service for their hotel partners.
“We have a team of 8 people in the Melbourne office who will continue to work with our growing portfolio of properties throughout Victoria. It’s extremely important for us to be on the ground and close to our accommodation partners, building relationship with them and understanding their needs.”
