On Tuesday, Booking.com announced it was running a test pilot for a new platform specifically designed for the unique needs of travel agents. The new platform has been dubbed “Booking.com for Travel Agents.”

The new Booking.com for Travel Agents platform features a suite of easy-to-use tools meant to help travel industry professionals make and manage accommodation reservations for their clients via Booking.com.

Travel agents who join the platform will be eligible to receive similar partner benefits as all Booking.com affiliate partners, and the Booking.com for Travel Agents platform has become an extension of the company's existing Affiliate Partner Program.

In addition to offering travel agents a customized suite of tools, Booking.com for Travel Agents also includes a tab of organizable reports that support agents in monitoring individual client bookings, as well as providing them with an easy-to-understand breakdown of their earnings over time.

The platform will be available to travel agents all over the world, with Booking.com available in 43 languages. The website offers over one million hotels and accommodations, including more than 520,000 vacation rental properties and covers over 96,000 destinations in 227 countries and territories across the world.
