This article investigates the competing organisations Booking Holdings and Expedia across a range of hospitality solutions – Expedia currently leads in hotels and airlines, but Booking dominates in alternative accommodations, car rentals and restaurants.

Airbnb has raised the profile of alternative accommodations in many areas across the world, but matches it in terms of listings, leaving Expedia behind. The article uses a number of charts to demonstrate the  difference in total accommodations, traditional and alternative, between Expedia and Booking Holdings.
