Choice Hotels International has unveiled RapidBook, enabling travellers to make reservations quickly and easily using a mobile device.
RapidBook streamlines the search and checkout functions by leveraging the preferences and other information customers opt to add to their online profile.
Robert McDowell, senior vice president, global distribution, Choice Hotels International explains: “Today, mobile is the fastest growing way to make hotel reservations,”
“But mobile booking must be fast and convenient for busy travellers on the go.
“RapidBook takes the frustration out of the mobile reservation process by eliminating the need to fill in information and credit card numbers on a tiny phone screen.
“Users simply enter their information one time when completing their online profile. After that, they’re ready to book quickly through the Choice Hotels mobile website.” McDowell added.
The Choice Hotels mobile website, m.choicehotels.com, is compatible with iPhones, Android phones and iPads.
The site allows users to map out the company’s nearest hotels or find properties by city, zip code, airport code or popular attraction; obtain real-time information, including rates and amenities; view hotel images; access Choice Privileges® accounts and redeem points; and more.
Additionally, iPhone and iPad app users can view local points of interest on the hotel search results map and share their hotel via social media, text message and email.
