Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced the launch of an Android app, allowing even more smartphone users to book hotels on-the-go. The Android app joins the recently released iPhone app in making mobile booking available to more people. The Android app has all the features of the iPhone version, including immediate access to more than 160,000 hotels worldwide, instant confirmation on bookings, and the ability to search hotels by current location. With more than 21,000 hotels and resorts in Asia alone, the android app gives travelers access to deals that aren’t offered on other sites. Users can flick through hotel photos, check property facilities and read authentic customer reviews to find exactly what they need.
Giving travelers the edge on last-minute bookings, customers can use the app to find nearby deals no matter where they are. Travelers can step off the plane, book a hotel, and get directions from wherever they are to the hotel’s front desk. By the time they arrive, their confirmation voucher is in their inbox, ready to present on check-in.
