amazonAmazon is set to launch Amazon Travel on a move expected to disrupt the hotel and travle industry for good.
According to reports, Amazon Travel will power hotel and resort booking and will start from New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle as early as Januray 1.

According to the report by Skift Amazon has already signed up a number of hotels to showcase their room types, availability, price and would offer Amazon Travel 15% commission on all prepaid bookings.

The hotel marketplace will help hotel owners of independent and boutique hotels sell their rooms online and compete with huge budget hotel chains or online travel agencies. The report adds that Amazon has been heavily hiring for its Amazon Travel service and backed with data from sellers who use the Amazon to sell their travel packages, the firm is in for a big harvest.

Amazon Travel will take on Alibaba’s Alitrip and several others in the US and eventually globally.
