Booking.com has introduced a new feature that prioritises health and safety. This new feature allows accommodation partners to inform travellers of their own initiatives in health and safety, allowing for greater consumer assurance and transparency.
Travellers can make an informed decision while choosing a property
On the website, accommodation partners can choose from a variety of health and safety measures in areas such as hygiene, sanitization, social distancing and food safety amongst others. The selection will be visible on the website in a specially designed ‘health and safety box’ to make it easier for travellers to make a decision. The feature will ensure that travellers will have a comprehensive understanding of all the health and safety measures within the property they select.
Ritu Mehrotra, Country Manager, India, Sri Lanka and Maldives, Booking.com said, “At Booking.com, our utmost concern is for the safety and security of our customers, partners and colleagues. As the situation evolves, we continue to update the support we provide, including enhanced transparency to consumers around health & safety information when booking on our platform. By introducing these safety measures we will help set accurate expectations and bring additional peace of mind for travellers when the time is right and they are ready to experience the world again.”
