Amoma hat Insolvenz angemeldet …
Die meisten meiner Leser werden wahrscheinlich nicht bei Online Travel Agencies Hotels buchen. Zu interessant ist ein Hotelstatus und die damit verbundenen Benefits.
Wer aber schon länger dabei ist, wird – wie ich – vor Jahren ein ganz starker User der Best Price Garantien gewesen sein. Da war ein ganz toller Player Amoma. Bei IHG hat mir Amoma echt viele kostenlose Nächte und Spaß gebracht.
Leider ist das Ende von Amoma gekommen. Man hat Insolvenz angemeldet. Andere Anbieter würden die marktbeherrschende Situation so ausnützen, dass man nicht mehr weitermachen kann:
“Your booking will probably be cancelled by our suppliers.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Clients,
Since its creation, AMOMA has always strived, with success, to find the best value for money for its customers.
Entities that claim to act as “price comparators” are, in effect, media agencies that redirect consumers to entities like ours against paying a cost per click. These media agencies are sometimes owned by companies operating in the same segment as ours, which has a negative impact on free competition. They are currently in a dominant position in the market and we think that this is to the detriment of the end consumers. Indeed, having taken the place that is theirs today, these entities unilaterally impose unsustainable financial conditions for us, because we work at the fair price to benefit our customers, not to benefit these media agencies.
The result is a market concentration in which only a very small circle of majors Online Travel Agencies can survive. You probably also know that the public authorities are currently opening investigation procedures against these entities, notably in Australia, Spain – and most recently, as reported in the press, in the United States.
However, these commercial practices that are unilaterally imposed on us make the continuation of our activities impossible. We therefore regret to have to inform you of the cessation of our activities, with immediate effect.
For those who have booked rooms via our website:
Contact the reserved hotel to inquire about the provision of the service.
Contact your payment institution or your travel insurance.
While we regret to have to announce the above, we send you, Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Clients, our best regards.”
