Video Tutorial

Watch the below video, if you rather follow step by step via video

 

 

Step 1: Sign up /Sign in for a free account

If you don't already have a Webautomation account, you can sign up for a free trial account with your email here.

 

 

Step 2: Find the Booking.com Scraper

Once you sign in you will be redirected to the in-app home page. As we are looking only for the Booking.com Extractor, search for it on the main search bar. When you see the result, click on it. In Webautomation.io you will find 2  extractors

Booking.com Hotel room details or Booking.com search pages, choose the one which best meets your requirements

 

 

 

Step 3: Activate the booking extractor

To confirm you want to go ahead and add the extractor to your profile, click the Activate button.

 

 

Step 4: Get URLs from Booking.com

Open Booking.com in a new tab and find the data you are looking for by running a search. For this example, let's search for hotels in central London.

Once you have searched, copy the URL and go back into WebAutomation. See the URL we used here

P.S The only valid format for URLs contains /search results

 

 

Pro tip 1: To get the best results, make your  search as specific as possible so you limit your results and don't waste credits on unwanted results.

P.S Booking.com only shows a maximum of 1,000 hotel results per search

 

Step 5: Configure the booking extractor

The key input required is the starter link from Google Maps. Paste your link in the Edit Starter Links box and click Update.

Make sure it starts with /searchresults

 

 

 

Before running the extractor, go to the Variables tab and enter the language you want to search in as well as the check-in and out dates. 

Make sure to save the changes by clicking Update. 

 

 

 

 

 

Pro tip 2: To increase the speed of the extractor, go to Settings and increase the concurrent Request count.  This is only available on certain paid plans. 

 

 

Step 6: Run the booking Extractor

Click the "Run now " button to begin the extractor session.

 

 

 

Step 7: Sit Back, Relax, and Let WebAutomation Get Your Data

You will get a pop up telling you the extractor is running and the status of the extractor will show as "running". Our scraping method works like a real user, allowing you to extract all the data you need without being blocked. Because of this, it can take several hours to scrape all the results, depending on how many there are in the starter URL you input. 

 

 

 

Step 8: Download Your Booking Data

You will be notified by email once the extractor has finished. You can click the link in the email or log in to your account and go to the Data tab to download the data.

You can download as CSV, JSON, XLSX, XML and JL.

 

 

 

Step 9: Open the Data File

In this example, we downloaded our file as a CSV, so we will use Microsoft Excel to open the file
