Expedia pulls hotel content from Hopper

The company is pulling its hotel and vacation rental supply from Hopper, charging the rival OTA with taking advantage of consumers

Hopper fired back with its own statement, also attributed to a company spokesperson. “Expedia notified us today that they will no longer distribute their inventory via Hopper channels.
