Priceline.com is an American company and a commercial website that claims to help users obtain discount rates for travel-related purchases such as airline tickets and hotel stays. The company is not a direct supplier of these services; instead it facilitates the provision of travel services by its suppliers to its customers. It is headquartered in Norwalk, Connecticut, United States. Priceline.com is wholly owned by The Priceline Group.
Priceline was founded by Jay S. Walker, who left the company in 2000. Hong Kong company Cheung Kong Holdings later purchased a significant portion of Priceline’s stock.
