Amoma.com Troubles May Delight Hoteliers That Hate Its Rate Discounting
Hoteliers probably disliked Amoma.com more than any other online travel agency in the past few years. Amoma often undercut hoteliers on price. Now its reported troubles may have repercussions across the hotel and online travel industry for companies like Hotelbeds, Google, and Booking.com.
Spanish news publication Preferente claimed Friday that Amoma had filed for bankruptcy. Amoma CEO Nicolas Arthur and his co-founder, chief technology officer, Yann Arthur, didn't respond to our text messages at the time of publication.
UPDATE: On Saturday, Amoma stopped taking bookings. It posted a message on its site blaming price-comparison sites for unfair business practices.
