Amazon is apparently exiting the travel business, only months after testing the waters with its hotel booking resource, Amazon Destinations.

Amazon Destinations was meant to grow from a hyper-local portal helping people to discover and book places to stay into yet another global site offering travel services.

However, after testing the waters with consumers looking to travel to or around New York, LA and Seattle, the company has decided to pack up and leave.

If you have made a reservation via the site, then it will be honoured, but Amazon Destinations is now officially shuttered to new visitors.
