Priceline.com Inc:Germany's antitrust regulator has ordered that online travel agent Booking.com must scrap a practice that forbids hotels from offering rooms at lower prices on their own websites. - RTRS.So-called parity clauses in contracts between online booking sites and hotels are common in the industry and have led to complaints by rivals and scrutiny by regulators across Europe - RTRS.The practice allows online travel agents such as Booking.com, part of U.S.-based Priceline Group PCLN.O, to claim that they always offer the cheapest online rates available. Germany's Federal Cartel Office said the clause violates fair competition rules. - RTRS.In a concession to regulators, Booking.com eased its policy in December 2014, allowing hotels to offer lower prices on rival portals but not on their own websites. The cartel office said that this was still illegal. - RTRS."These so-called narrow best-price clauses still limit competition between existing portals as well as competition between the hotels," Andreas Mundt, the cartel office's president, said in a statement on Wednesday - RTRS.The regulator said that its investigation into similar practises at rival Expedia EXPE.O was ongoing. A German court also backed a competition authority's decision that such clauses at HRS were illegal. - RTRS.  Full Article
