About Booking Cares

Booking Cares is the CSR program of where our employees get one day a year from to do volunteer work. They can work on something that matters to the local community and at the same time can have a real impact on making tourism in our destinations sustainable. We have the opportunity and the resources to make a significant impact. We focus on the following three themes: Cultural Heritage, Environment and Sustainable Tourism.


Because we care about our destinations. Not only because they're the places our customers travel to but because our growing number of partners rely on these places for sustainable tourism. More importantly, it's also because we live and work there. In a small world we are all neighbors! We want to take on the responsibility to care for our communities!


By bringing together supply and demand. We post partner organizations and their specific projects online on our internal Cares platform. Our partner organizations know how to make an impact but maybe lack the time, resources, skills and visibility to actualize their goals. We help them by spending one day working together on something that matters to the local community, something that can have a real impact on making tourism in our destinations sustainable. Reviews

    I have been working at full-time (More than 3 years)


    Travel- I've traveled to countries I would've never thought I could ever visit. Personal Development- I was able to take control of my career and focus on my development along with the support of my manager. Training- I've had the opportunity to go to management training and cross- training in other offices. Culture- the people are awesome, we are encouraged to collaborate and share best practices amongst our team and with other offices. Other perks - free monthly lunch, yearly Annual meeting in Amsterdam.


    Change is constant- if you're a creature of habit and routine, the constantly changing business can be frustrating. Fast paced environment- it can be difficult to keep up if you're not used to it. Keeps you on your toes. Interviews

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at


    After an initial phone call to introduce the recruiter and the applicant, they'll set up a technical screen over the phone and send you some challenge questions to solve before the call. There are only a few and each one only takes a few minutes (maybe 10, or 15 at most). In the phone call, they'll review your answers to the questions and give you a couple other small challenges to solve in front of them. After that call, if all goes well, you will be invited to interview with them in person, and this is quite a positive experience.
