An online rental company that promotes and rates accommodations and sites and enables travelers to book lodging and travel sites reservations. Part of the Priceline Group.

Through its website, Booking.com promotes properties located on occupied Palestinian and Syrian land. Properties in West Bank Israeli settlements are listed as located either in Israel or in “an Israeli settlement,” while those located in occupied East Jerusalem and Syrian Golan are listed exclusively as located in Israel, misinforming consumers that book either short term or long term rentals. In all cases, Booking.com failed to inform consumers of the settlements' illegal status under international law and their location on occupied land.

Listings on Booking.com's website were found in the settlements of Kalia, Tekoa, Kfar Adumim, Metsoke Dragot, Vered Yeriho and Almog in the occupied West Bank, listed as being either in Israel or in "Israeli settlement." Properties were also found in the settlements of Moshav Ramot, Neve Nativ and Ani'am in the occupied Golan Heights, and in the Old City and the Ramot settlement neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, all of which were mislabeled "Israel."
