What does Booking Scraper do?

Our free Booking Scraper allows you to scrape data from Booking.com, one of the best-known platforms for hotels, apartments, resorts, villas, and other types of accommodation worldwide.

Our Booking Scraper is capable of extracting data such as:

🏖 Hotel names and locations

🗓 Availability

⏱ Check-in and check-out times

🛏 Room types

💵 Prices (if you provide dates for your stay)

🖋 Reviews

📃 Conditions

💰 Promotions

The Booking.com API interface is quite user-friendly, but getting that data in machine-processable format is no easy task. Booking.com places a lot of restrictions on how data can be collected from its listings, one of them being that it will only display a maximum of 1,000 results for any given search. Apify's Booking Scraper doesn't impose any limitations on your results, so you can scrape data from Booking.com at scale.

How much will it cost to scrape Booking?

Apify gives you $5 free usage credits every month on the Apify Free plan. You can get 2,000 results per month from Booking.com for that, so those 2,000 results will be completely free!

But if you need to regularly scrape data from Booking.com, you should grab an Apify subscription. We recommend our $49/month Personal plan - you can get up to 20,000 every month with the $49 monthly plan!

Or get 200,000 results for $499 with the Team plan - wow!

Tips for scraping Booking

1️⃣ The actor will not work without a proxy. If you try running the actor without a proxy, it will fail with a message stating exactly that. There could be a slight difference in price depending on the type of proxy you use.

2️⃣ Booking.com will only display a maximum of 1,000 results; if you need to circumvent this limitation, you can utilize the useFilters INPUT attribute. However, using any limiting filters in start URLs will not be possible because the scraper will override those.

3️⃣ If you need to get detailed data about specific rooms, the scraper needs to be started with checkIn and checkOut INPUT attributes (Booking.com only shows complete room info for specific dates).

4️⃣ Booking.com may return some suggested hotels outside of the expected city/region as a recommendation. The scraper will return all of them in the data results, so you may get more results than your search.

Note that personal data is protected by GDPR in the European Union and by other regulations around the world. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so. If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers. We also recommend that you read our blog post: is web scraping legal?

Integrations and Booking Scraper

Last but not least, Booking Scraper can be connected with almost any cloud service or web app thanks to integrations on the Apify platform. You can integrate with Make, Zapier, Slack, Airbyte, GitHub, Google Sheets, Google Drive, and more. Or you can use webhooks to carry out an action whenever an event occurs, e.g. get a notification whenever Booking Scraper successfully finishes a run.

Using Booking Scraper with the Apify API

The Apify API gives you programmatic access to the Apify platform. The API is organized around RESTful HTTP endpoints that enable you to manage, schedule, and run Apify actors. The API also lets you access any datasets, monitor actor performance, fetch results, create and update versions, and more.

To access the API using Node.js, use the apify-client NPM package. To access the API using Python, use the apify-client PyPI package.

Check out the Apify API reference docs for full details or click on the API tab for code examples.
