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.

Online consumer review forums lit up Friday with complaints from many travelers that they had been stranded when hotels stopped honoring reservations booked via Amoma.com, an online agency.

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.
