Here’s how to book your next hotel

Font Size:

A new travel app on the market is creating a stir, and for good reason.

Hotel Tonight is turning the travel industry on its head by helping users to find great deals based on their current location. Not for the faint hearted, or those who are adamant about planning ahead, the app is taking over the last-minute space when it comes to booking accommodation.

With hand-picked hotels, you can book for tonight, tomorrow or anywhere up to seven days in advance. Rates are sourced from 15,000 hotels in over 500 destinations around the world.

The app offers deals 30 – 40 per cent cheaper than normal rates, as well as a GeoRates feature for same-day bookings. Listed in green, these are the rooms that hotels really just want to get rid of, which will pop up after 12pm each day. Want to really throw caution to the wind? For even bigger discounts, check after 6pm on the day. Hey, travel’s meant to be an adventure right?

RRP: Free. Available for download from the Apple App Store and Google play.
