Innovative Search Experience Updates

Innovating to make it easier for customers to find what they’re looking for is at the core of Booking. com’s business. With an updated search experience, it has made it simple for customers looking for the types of accommodations they are seeking, for example, the ability to search for private, whole home accommodations, and additional filter options that deliver results tied to what research shows customers want at this time, including drive time or distance from their home, trip themes such as beach or nature, and cleanliness score – all of which are top of mind for travelers at the moment.

Digital Demand Generation

Closely monitoring the circumstances in India, as travel restrictions are lifted and travel intent emerges, the travel site will leverage its expertise in digital demand generation to help travellers search for their next trip and incentivize them to book. It will continue to share domestic travel offers and deals (mobile, domestic booker, secret and early booker) to our customers, when it’s safe to travel again.
