Google, Kayak, Hipmunk, Skyscanner, Travelzoo, and TripAdvisor attack DOT’s proposed rule
It’s not every day that Google, Kayak, Hipmunk, TripAdvisor, Skyscanner, and Travelzoo (owner of Fly.com) unite in solidarity.
But when it comes to US federal rulemaking about travel search online, the metasearch players are putting up a united front.
The companies have submitted a joint statement attacking a proposed US Department of Transportation (DOT) rule that would apply stricter consumer protection regulation to flight comparison websites, among eight other rule changes.
(The DOT has extended the filing deadline for public comment to the proposed rule-making until next Monday, as noted by the Travel Technology Association.)
