Kayak gets in on same-day mobile hotel booking groove
Kayak quietly introduced same-day bookings for hotels six weeks ago. The arrival and growth of same-day bookings on a mobile has turned into quite an interesting battleground in recent months.
As Priceline, Hotel Tonight, Blink Booking et al battle for the PR with launches of same-day bookings for hotels, Kayak quietly introduced the same thing six weeks ago.
Launched on May 15 this year, users of Kayak’s apps can find hotels in their immediate area (using the GPS function of the handset) with availability for the same day.
Kayak says the average saving on a hotel on its system is around 25%, even 35% or more in Europe.
