What in April seemed to me as an aggressive entry into the online hotel booking market by Amazon, has been abruptly shut down without a warning.

A notice on Amazon Destinations states:

“Effective October 13, Amazon Destinations stopped selling reservations on travel.amazon.com and the Amazon Local app. If you have a reservation, your reservation is valid and will be honored by the hotel. No action is required on your part.”

Goodbye Amazon Destination!
