This apparent agreement between the OTA's and the ACCC is a farce as it doesn't really change anything. Providers still have to provide full online price parity and we cannot publish lower prices. This is effectively price setting condoned by the ACCC.

If an OTA increases their commission we should be able to increase their buying price of our accommodation to compensate. This would result in true competition between OTA's - increased commissions would mean increased selling prices compared to their opposition!
