SAN FRANCISCO—HotelTonight, the last-minute hotel booking app, has announced the availability of two new rate options, Rate Drop and Bonus Rate. Both new offers, which deliver savings up to 40 percent off hotel rates found on other travel sites, are location-specific and limited, and only customers within certain areas can capitalize on them.
Rate Drop, now available globally, is a same-day offer that appears in the app starting at 3 p.m. at hotels nearby.
Bonus Rate is a rotating offer that can be found up to seven days in advance. Hotels offer these special lower rates to interest travelers from other destinations to visit their location. Bonus Rate is now available in select cities and will be rolled out to all HotelTonight destinations in the coming weeks.
“Four years ago, we invented same-day mobile discounts and a better way to book a last-minute hotel stay. Today, we’ve announced the next great innovation in hotel booking, again leveraging the unique capabilities of mobile technology,” said Sam Shank, co-founder and CEO of HotelTonight. “Utilizing these new offers, consumers can book at the last minute and find unbeatable discounts at amazing hotels, and our hotel partners will fill more empty rooms. It’s a true win-win that we’re tremendously proud and excited about.”
HotelTonight’s proprietary hotel management platform gives hoteliers real-time control over the new offers, allowing them to target specific locations and select additional discounts. These offers are applied at the hotels discretion, and can be added or modified instantly across all platforms. This enables hotels to quickly sell inventory up until 2 a.m. and ensure that all of their rooms are filled.
