That has been like that for more than twenty years. I used to work in
the airline industry, I know quite well how to get the best car rental
prices. Nothing new about it at all. Airlines tickets, yep - train
tickets, they're catching up.
However, inside the EU there is little reason for such big price
differences on e.g. consumer goods, unless they're produced locallyor
unless they;re subject to local taxation or price regulation.
Read "little reason" == "it's illegal".

Recently I was booking a flight with British Airways and found that the prices shot up on their UK site, so I had to book through their French site instead which offered much better deals for the exact same flights.
