Australian hoteliers now free to undercut OTAs on offline bookings

As per a news report on TravelMole, the Australia competition watchdog has finally struck a deal to partially end the price parity clauses demanded by the big hotel booking sites.

For years major OTAs such as Expedia and Priceline’s Booking.com had demanded a ‘lowest available price’ guarantee so that individual hoteliers could not undercut them. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said this clause has now been removed for telephone and walk-in bookings, and for loyalty members.
