Read more about it in our blog post from earlier in the fall: http://theempress.com/2017/03/28/best-travel-deals-truth-about-booking-engines/.What’s really happening when you use Online Travel Agents (OTA’s) and how they manipulate the travel industry, buying up any sites that might offer competition and controlling even what you see when you look online. They will even buy the organic website name of an inn thru Google in order to co-opt guests so they think they’re pulling up the actual properties website only to be shuffled over one of the OTA’s. It’s not unusual during prime viewing/shopping time for 7-9 different OTA’s to purchase the name of property you’re searching for to mislead you to thinking you’re on their site. While this is legal, most of us would consider the unethical and bad for business.
