India, 30 September 2011: Hotels.com, the world’s leading hotel booking website, has launched a new specially-designed iPad application available for free download.
Available in more than 30 languages, the app allows users to search and book 140,000 hotels around the world. They can choose from 20,000 last minute deals, browse more than 2.5 million user reviews and find last-minute bookings close to their location.
The booking flow is intuitive and has also been built to allow the keyboard to remain at the bottom of the screen throughout the process for ease of use. Users can flick through hotels, photos and reviews with one swipe, explore the interactive skyline with landmarks from around the world, make use of the powerful sort and filter tools and also save and manage their favourite hotels.
“We are very excited about the launch of the new Hotels.com iPad app which takes advantage of all the great usability functionality that Apple offers to help travellers find the right hotel quickly and easily,” said Johan Svanstrom, Managing Director for Hotels.com Asia Pacific.
“We launched our two mobile apps in April and well over 1.5 million have already been downloaded worldwide. We expect this new iPad app to be just as popular with our customers looking to search, compare and book hotels on-the-go.”
Users can book as a guest or create a Hotels.com account which can then be synchronised between the iPad, smart phone and desktop. Even without a data connection, all past and future bookings can be accessed and the app supports WelcomeRewards, the unique Hotels.com loyalty programme that offers 1 free night for every 10 nights stayed.
