|| Priceline.com's Subsidiary Opens Office in Dubai

Priceline.com’s European subsidiary, Booking.com, has just announced opening its regional office in Dubai.

The company mentions that as a result of high demand levels for hotel rooms in the Middle East from key outbound traveling markets such as UK, Saudi Arabia, Germany and Japan, it has extended its operations into the Middle East by establishing an office in Dubai Internet City.

Booking.com, which priceline.com acquired in 2005, is available in 15 languages and offers over 30,000 hotels in more than 8,000 destinations. According to Sabrina Costermans, Manager of Booking.com Middle East: “This is an exciting time for Booking.com as the Middle East represents a market with great potential in terms of attracting new business via the internet”. Indeed it is!
