Item 8.01.              Other Events.


On March 10, 2022, Glenn D. Fogel, Chief Executive Officer and President of Booking Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a stock trading plan implemented pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 (the “Fogel Plan”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Fogel Plan provides for the sale of up to 100% of the total "net" number (net amounts associated with any tax withholding) of shares underlying performance share units and shares of restricted stock granted in December 2020, March 2021, and March 2022, and to be granted in March 2023, which are issued at vesting in December 2022, March 2023, December 2023, and March 2024, subject to certain price limits. The Fogel Plan also provides for the sale, over time, of up to 18,000 shares of Company common stock, subject to certain price limits. The first possible sales date is August 15, 2022. Under the terms of the Fogel Plan, Mr. Fogel will have no discretion or control over the timing or effectuation of the sales. The Fogel Plan expires on July 15, 2024.


A table summarizing the pre-arranged trading plans adopted by each of the Company’s “Section 16” officers and directors is available in the “For Investors” section of the Company’s website (bookingholdings.com) under the tab “Corporate Governance.” The Company’s practice, which it currently intends to continue, is to update the table following the closing of its trading window each quarter. Transactions under the Fogel Plan will be disclosed publicly through appropriate filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
