Local governments around the world require property owners to have special licences to legally operate their businesses. That means that properties need to supply licence information in order to go live on Booking.com.

 

The Licences API is our standalone solution to ensure that your properties are always compliant with local licence requirements so that new properties can go live on Booking.com as quickly as possible.

  • Retrieve licence requirements on property and unit level Property managers can easily see which licences are required in order for their properties to go live on Booking.com.  
  • Submit and verify licence information Once it is clear what a property’s licence requirements are, you can submit the required and optional details. You’ll also be able to verify whether the submitted licence information still meets the updated requirements, on the unit or property level.  
  • Make sure your properties stay compliant with frequently updated licence requirements We continuously add new local licence information to the Licences API to ensure compliance across the globe. As soon as new legislation is introduced in a region, it can be accessed through the Licences API.  
  • Prioritise properties that do not need licences in your onboarding process The Licences API can identify whether or not properties need a licence. Those that don’t can therefore focus on other parts of the process – such as photos, policies, facilities – and go live faster on Booking.com.
