Booking.com, Expedia and Trip.com drop contract clauses deemed a threat to competition

2020/4/2 1:17:48
Three major online travel agencies have offered to remove clauses in their contracts with accommodation providers that a Hong Kong watchdog investigation found could threaten competition and lead to higher prices for guests.

The Competition Commission said that Booking.com, Expedia.com and Trip.com had agreed on favourable terms with businesses such as hotels that might undermine the online travel agency market, hinder new or smaller firms from entering and deprive consumers of choice.

“The existing clauses require accommodation providers in Hong Kong to always give the online travel agents the same or better terms as those they offer in all other sales channels,” the antitrust watchdog said in a statement, referring to clauses on the room price, availability and conditions.

It said the terms made it unlikely that hotels or guest houses would offer a better room price, conditions or availability to a new online travel agency because they would then have to offer superior deals to the agencies already under contract with them.
