As a Booking.com Affiliate Partner, you’re not permitted to contact Booking.com accommodation partners for any reason. Any questions relating to properties should be communicated to us directly.
This is because Booking.com has specific business agreements with accommodations regarding, for example, content usage or preferential placement on our website.
Note: If you’ve already established a relationship with a property before becoming an Affiliate Partner, you’re not expected to terminate this arrangement – but we do expect you to adhere to the Affiliate Agreement from the moment you sign up.
Clause 4.6.1 from Booking.com Affiliate Agreement: The Affiliate agrees not to contact, solicit or accept any Hotel (i) as its business partner for bookings or reservation (directly or indirectly) on or through the Affiliate Website(s), (ii) for sale of advertisement space or other (online) advertisement or marketing purposes (whether through banners, click-through, (text) links, pop-ups or otherwise) on the Affiliate Website(s), or (iii) for any other reason.
