  • Published by Ozgur Tore

amazon destinations

The online shopping giant; Amazon launched a new service Tuesday to help people plan and book local getaway trips through its website. The new service, called Amazon Destinations, provides lists of locations near a user's home for short-term trips, offering hotel bookings, as well as information on dining and attractions.

The new service, which also features user reviews, currently showcases hotels in three US regions, including the Pacific Northwest, Southern California and the Northeast.

Amazon Destinations expands on Amazon Local, the company's daily-deals hub, which offers discounts for local shops, theater tickets, restaurants and entertainment.

Amazon may be able to draw in customers thanks to the traffic to its main site, but it will have to work hard to differentiate itself against so many other online travel agencies.
