Five weeks before the Summer Olympic Games begin in London, the Hotel Tonight app has taken a decidedly British turn. The last-minute lodging discounter app is now available in the United Kingdom for the first time.
First launched for iOS in December 2010, the free Hotel Tonight app makes it easy for customers to find last-minute deals in 40 U.S. cities, Toronto, Vancouver, and now London.
Hotel Tonight offers three same-day hotel deals in each of their destinations, with discounts of up to 70 percent off. Hotel categories include Basic, Hip, and Luxe. Deals can be booked using the app in less than 10 seconds – just three taps and a swipe from app launch to completed booking. Rooms can be booked until 2 a.m. local time.
To promote their launch in London, Hotel Tonight is offering two special promotions for anyone visiting the Olympic city. London travelers can get £15 off their first booking by using the promo code UK15. Users can also invite friends to try out the app and receive another £15 when that friend makes their first booking.
According to Sam Shank, CEO, Hotel Tonight:
Over the last year, we’ve focused on making traveling within the U.S. more spontaneous by offering convenient, last-minute hotel deals. And in a very short time, we’ve made a huge impact. Now, we’re going to change the way the rest of the world views travel. We’re excited to break ground in the UK, and start fulfilling spontaneous travel needs abroad.
Hotel Tonight is available in the App Store.
