It seems Cendant/Travelport have finally pulled the plug on the terminal Lodging.com. Lodging has always struggled to compete with category king Hotels.com and even it's Cendant/Travelport brothers and sisters such as HotelClub. It is strange that the URL does not automatically redirect to sister site Orbitz . Makes not sense to give users an option. Lodging.com was always a two-bit player with poor tech, zero brand recognition and good but not-good-enough inventory. It's
always sad to see a site go time was up a long time ago. RIP but unlikely to be missed.
