Last minute deals app HotelTonight launches in Australia
Following over 13 million downloads worldwide, last minute travel app HotelTonight today launched in Australia. Available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, HotelTonight allows users to make last-minute hotel bookings at an often heavily discounted rate.
At present, HotelTonight enables Australian users to book rooms up to seven days in advance across Sydney, Melbourne, the Yarra Valley, Hepburn Springs and Berowra Waters. In addition, the app hopes to promote "spontaneous adventures" with same day rates only visible for customers with a certain radius of the hotel in question. These rates will appear from 12pm on a daily basis, and come down in price at 6pm.
Bookings made through HotelTonight are non-refundable.
"We are really excited to be leading the mobile revolution in the global and Australia hotel booking industry," said HotelTonight Asia Pacific Regional Director Stefan Cordiner. "We like to shake things up for people and make travelling a little more spontaneous and fun, and we think Australia is ready for our brand."
