Item 7.01.    Regulation FD Disclosure

On April 10, 2018, Booking.com, a subsidiary of Booking Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), issued a press release disclosing the number of “Reported Listings” for its homes, apartments and other unique places to stay (alternative accommodation properties). The press release is being furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. Reported Listings refers to the total number of individually bookable units at that property as reported to us by the property, whether or not those units are all available for booking on Booking.com at a given point in time. For example, a hotel with 100 individually bookable rooms would represent one property and 100 Reported Listings (or rooms potentially available for booking), while a 5-bedroom vacation home that is bookable as a single unit would represent one property and one Reported Listing.

In its Form 10-K filed February 27, 2018, the Company disclosed Booking.com's two new property categories of “hotels, motels and resorts” (also referred to as traditional accommodations) and “homes, apartments and other unique places to stay” (also referred to as alternative accommodations). Going forward, the Company expects to provide Reported Listings based on the two property categories and will, from time to time, update the count of properties in each category.

The information furnished herewith pursuant to this Item 7.01 of this Current Report shall not be deemed to be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
