    I think, if anything

    the article's implied message is: barrier to entry is anything but low.

    • I was talking about expedia.nl, if you learned how to read before attempting to post, it might help your argument.

      There are the following booking costs on expedia.nl for five tickets: 15 EUR * 5 (reservation costs) + 10 EUR (credit card cost!) + 13.5 EUR (delivery cost) = 98.5 EUR

      On expedia.co.uk the same ticket costs about 100 EUR more, so that was out of the question. I suppose longs will say this is how expe makes profits by tacking on extra charges, but the bottom line still comes down to a few measly cents profit per share. Good luck.

    • barriere to entry is high if not impossible.

      it's hard enough to compete with the scale (read: buying power, market share, and/or brand name) of any one Operating Business on its own (which has been tried, and the failures are many), much less trying to compete with them as a group
