Yes, you can refer anyone – even if they’ve booked with us before! For your referred friend’s booking to be eligible for the reward, they have to use the referral link to book their accommodations. If a friend makes more than one booking using a referral link (with yours or anyone else’s), they’ll only be rewarded once. No rewards will be issued for other bookings.
All you need is a Booking.com account, and to add and register your credit card details for receiving rewards. Navigate to the Credit Card section under Settings (or under Edit Profile in our app). Tick the box beside your preferred reward payment method. After your friend returns from their stay, we’ll put the cash reward on your card.
After your friend returns from their trip, we will verify your reward and you will get an email on how to claim it. It can take between 15 and 30 business days for you to receive the reward payment. You can always sign in to your account to check your reward status.
