The service was launched just six months ago, selling close-to-home vacations and featuring destinations within a customer’s driving distance.
Amazon.com has shuttered its Amazon Destinations travel site less than six months after launching the service.
Travelers navigating to the website, where the company sold getaway vacations, are now greeted with a message that “Effective October 13, 2015, Amazon Destinations stopped selling hotel reservations.”
The website also noted that existing reservations are “valid and will be honored by the hotel.”
“We have learned a lot and have decided to discontinue Amazon Destinations.” the company said in a statement.
