As a Booking.com affiliate partner, you are not allowed to copy content and/or style from Booking.com partner hotel websites or from Booking.com, in order to create a replica of the official hotel website.
In cases when a hotel has no official page, you, as an affiliate partner of Booking.com, are not permitted to create such a page, regardless of whether the hotel has given you consent to do so or not. See Part 3 below, about contact with hotels restriction.
Please understand that replicating hotel websites for use with Booking.com affiliate program really upsets our hotel partners, which is why we must always act swiftly against any partners that create replica hotel websites.
As a rule of thumb on how to avoid the above issue, consider the following:
- If you have a website with a hotel-like domain name, that focuses on one hotel in particular (or a group of hotels), you are infringing and should remove such websites as soon as possible.
- If you have a website that compares different accommodation options within any particular region, or a website that offers accommodation advice, you are using the Booking.com affiliate program right!
- If you are unsure whether your page complies with Booking.com policies regarding anything described above, please contact us.
