Nominate Your #BookingHero for a Chance to Win $30k to Spend on Booking.com

Booking.com celebrates incredible guest experiences with global social media competition to honor the unsung heroes that make travel magic happen every day

Think back to your most unforgettable travel memories. Remember the hotel employee that helped you organize a last-minute proposal on the beach so you could pop the question in paradise? What about the apartment owner that drove you to the airport herself when your taxi didn’t show up so you wouldn’t miss your flight? What do these special moments have in common? Someone went out of their way to make or save your trip – and now we want to hear all about it. Tell us about the incredible concierge, or the super thoughtful owner that transformed your Booking.com stay into something remarkable and you could be eligible for a chance to win $30,000 to spend on Booking.com.

To nominate your Booking Hero and enter the competition, just share your story on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and use the #BookingHero hashtag. Remember to also tag @bookingcom. Include the name of the property on Booking.com, the Hero’s position at the property and a description of why you want to nominate them.

Booking.com will pick the three most incredible stories of hospitality professionals going above and beyond the call of duty to create extraordinary experiences for their guests. One lucky Hero and the customer who nominated them will each win $30,000 to spend on Booking.com. In addition, the two runners-up and their nominating customers will each win $5,500 in Booking.com travel credit.

“Behind every phenomenal travel experience is a hospitality professional that takes tremendous pride in creating special moments for their guests,” said Gillian Tans, CEO of Booking.com. “We want to share these amazing stories with the world and join our customers in saying thank you to the millions of Booking Heroes around the world who make a difference for travelers each and every day.”

Booking.com is accepting nominations for the #BookingHero competition on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter until November 30, 2017. Winner will be announced in January 2018.
