Todd Henrich, senior vice president of corporate development at Booking Holdings, the parent of Booking.com and KAYAK, cited the recent $50 million acquisition of FareHarbor as a good example. Although Booking remains in the market for more spectacular deals, as last year’s $550 million buyout of Cheapflights parent Momondo Group showed, Henrich indicated it was more interested in “tucking opportunities” allowing specialist firms to scale globally within the larger group. FareHarbor was a Hawaiian-based B2B platform for tours and activities which has been relocated to Amsterdam and now drives the firm’s activity in that sector for booking.com, said Henrich. He said a decade ago as Booking was scaling it was looking for strong firms that could stand alone which he said “works to a certain point”, but you end up with a “loose affiliation of brands”.
