    Our world renowned relocation package 🌍

    We know it can be daunting moving your life to a new place. That's why our relocation team will help make the journey effortless. We'll prepare paperwork, provide temporary accommodation when you arrive and transport you, your family and your furniture to Amsterdam. And once you've settled in, we'll connect you with housing agents and even get you started learning Dutch (although, you'll get by just fine without it).

    Technology at Booking

    At its core, is a technology business. Back in 1996, our founder set out with a simple plan: to use new technology to solve a problem. That approach remains a guiding principle in how we work today, leveraging technological innovations and talent to solve our partners’ problems.

    Today, over 2,500 tech employees work across a vast array of disciplines - from developers and designers, to product owners and data scientists. The size of the operation means complex innovations can happen at pace and scale, making an impact globally.
