NORWALK, Conn., April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ –Booking Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: BKNG) today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire local activities and experiences booking software provider, FareHarbor. Founded in Hawaii in 2013 and now headquartered in Denver, FareHarbor’s technology allows tour and activity operators to connect with customers online through software that facilitates an easy, seamless booking experience.
