About Us

Who are we?

BookerZzz is the leisure specialist with more than 20 years of experience in the leisure industry. Our mission is to provide our guests with the perfect stay with more value for money, hassle free. Through 7 websites in 10 different countries, we offer deals for more than 5,000 hotels. Thanks to our customer orientated approach, we help more than 1 million happy customers per year to experience their perfect stay.

BookerZzz was founded in 2002 by Remco Hofstede and Nick Stals. In 2005, the Scandinavian part of HotelSpecials was founded by Fredrik Jansson. Today, we have around 70 employees working in offices in Haarlem and Stockholm. Our company culture is informal but results-driven, and we continuously challenge ourselves to get better.

Our goal

We specialise in providing consumers with the best options for their stay with more value for money. We aim at offering a better choice of properties and we are continously focusing on your wishes: we want to offer you the deal that suits you best! At the same time, we believe that short getaways should always be hassle free, from finding the right accommodation to spending your time away from home.

Our culture: BookerZzz as employer

At BookerZzz, we want you to grow! That’s why we value people with a strong motivation and ambition to become better at what they do. You are not afraid to ask questions and to share your ideas with us.

We are an international and highly dynamic organization. We are a team where people want to work because they know they are important and they have the opportunity to become specialists within their fields. At the same time, we are proud of our open company culture, we are encouraged to work together towards common goals and we are good in celebrating successes.

The history of BookerZzz started with the launch of our consumer label HotelSpecials.nl. In 2002, Nick and Remco founded the company while they were still living in their student rooms and our company culture is still heavily influenced by the values that Nick and Remco already shared back then. Do you want to know more about our history and our company culture? Check out this story written by Remco on how it all started in 2002.
