When these eight websites are live, Kayak will have local websites in 27 countries, including the eight new ones plus U.S., Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, Austria, France and Italy, for example. From an initial look at the new Netherlands and Australia sites, it’s clear you will be seeing a lot more of sister company Booking.com. For example, if you decide to book a hotel through the “Kayak” booking option on the Kayak Netherlands site, Booking.com will actually handle the reservation and customer service. However, on Kayak Australia, Expedia’s Hotels.com is the partner that carries out those duties. Booking.com, which like Kayak is part of the Priceline Group, is also promoted on the Kayak Netherlands homepage. Get the full story at Skift
