Genius Commission Discount Offer from Booking.com in 2022
Booking.com is continuing to optimise the Partner Performance Investment Programme with the Genius Commission discount offer for Summer 2022.
How the offer works
To help properties lower their costs this summer and grow the business going forward, Booking.com has an introductory offer for Genius.
If the eligible properties join Genius before the end of June, they will automatically unlock a 20% discount on their commission for all stayed Genius reservations for stay dates from April to October.
Particularly, the campaign flow is:
Join Genius before 30 June and ensure you meet all campaign conditions.
You will receive a 20% commission discount on all stayed Genius rate bookings with the check out date prior to 30 September 2022.
A credit note will be issued to you within 2 months of the end of the incentive period. You can use the credit note to settle your current & future invoices.
Conditions to get the offer
This offer is restricted to only eligible properties to join Genius (continuously) for at least one year. You can check the requirements to join the Genius program here.
