Local business manager Stefan Cordiner has confirmed the redundancies recently announced by HotelTonight – a last minute hotel booking app – include Australia.
“HotelTonight management took the hard decision to streamline the global workforce to set itself on the road to profitability in 2016,” he said in a statement.
“Every global office will be impacted by this decision, but we remain committed to delivering great last-minute hotel deals to consumers across the Australian and the recently launch New Zealand markets.”
HotelTonight, which expanded to Australia earlier this year, last week said it will retrench 37 employees, or 20% of its global workforce.
Founder Sam Shank said HotelTonight is now a more “streamlined and focussed company” better equipped “to accomplish our mission to help people live a more spontaneous life.”
