The Priceline Group in Travel

March 2018

The Priceline Group (renamed Booking Holdings in February 2018) is the second largest online travel agency worldwide in terms of gross bookings, which totalled USD81 billion in 2017. The group utilises the agency model to ensure strong profits, and relies heavily on Booking.com as its most important brand. Despite new CEO Glenn Fogel stating the company is focusing on organic growth, the acquisition of Momondo shows the company is open to M&A activity when the opportunity arises.
