TRAVEL PROUD.

Making it easier for everyone to travel with pride.

Our research shows that more than half of LGBTQIA+ travellers have had less-than-welcoming or uncomfortable experiences in an accommodation they stayed in. This means that a huge proportion of the travel population is still not comfortable being themselves. At Booking.com, we firmly believe that the world deserves to be experienced by everyone – and for us, that means being able to experience the world as entirely yourself!

Our Travel Proud programme is a global initiative to promote inclusive hospitality and experiences for LGBTQIA+ travellers, whether through our partner education platform, product enhancements or partnerships with organisations such as Amsterdam Pride.

The Booking.com Travel Proud boot will highlight our talented and diverse employees, including members of our award-winning B.Proud employee resource group, who are committed to maintaining a culture of openness, inclusion and acceptance for the LGBTQIA+ community, both in the workplace and through the travel experiences we enable through the Booking.com platform.

In our role as proud main sponsor and partner of Amsterdam Pride, we are increasing our investment in supporting large-scale platforms that continue to push for progress and emphasise the importance of everyone being truly free to be themselves.

Our participation and partnership with Amsterdam Pride is a tangible extension of our company’s mission to make it easier for everyone to experience the world and of our global Travel Proud programme. We look forward to sailing in the city’s incredible canal parade, showcasing our Travel Proud Rainbow Suitcase and demonstrating how at Booking.com we filter places, not people.
