Booking Holdings Delays Charging Hotels Resort Fee Commissions in Major Reversal

Booking Holdings, which had announced it would begin charging hotels in the United States commission on their resort fees, has delayed implementing the new policy, Skift exclusively learned.

The company, which owns brands including Booking.com, Priceline, Agoda, and Kayak, is considering delaying the new commissions until January 1, according to multiple sources. The tentative new schedule for implementation — if the company goes through with it at all — is subject to change.

It is believed that Booking Holdings could be using the pause to reevaluate the whole policy.
