Among its new capabilities, the app now allows all users to make multi-room bookings, view all available offers by location via enhanced map functions, and control price display settings to include or exclude taxes and HotelQuickly credit.
Perhaps the most notable feature included in the latest release is HotelQuickly’s ‘Special Gift’ offers, collaboration between HotelQuickly and its partner hotels. The gifts — which are free vouchers, token treats and value-added services such as airport transfers – are rewards given by hotels to guests who book their stays through HotelQuickly.
“This is by far the most revolutionary and ambitious overhaul of HotelQuickly since the app debuted in 2013,” said Tomas Laboutka, HotelQuickly Co-founder and CEO. “We’re confident the smoother booking process and stronger brand image will propel HotelQuickly to the next level in its fourth year.”
The March makeover extends to the company’s logo. From today HotelQuickly is shedding its ‘pillow’ icon for a ‘key’ logo, created by London-based brand consultancy Idea Is Everything. Founders say the key symbolizes the app’s ability to unlock dynamic discounts as well as more travel opportunities for its members.
“HotelQuickly exists to make spontaneous travel easier and more enjoyable,” Laboutka said. “The app is a key for members to unlock not only the best hotel deals, but more pleasure and fulfilment in their everyday lives.”
One of the most disruptive apps to enter the hotel booking scene in Asia-Pacific, HotelQuickly has expanded rapidly to partner with some 12,000 hotels and encompass more than 250 destinations over the past three years. HotelQuickly added the 16th country to its roster with the acquisition of Tonight, a Japan-domestic booking app, just last month.
