Skyscanner now scans the ground for hotels with standalone app
Skyscanner – known primarily for its air search prowess – is now offering insight on the ground with standalone app for hotel search.
The UK-based company’s recent push into North America has contributed to its push for growth, creating circumstances of both increased competition and pressure to expand its offerings.
Simply called Skyscanner Hotel Search, the hotel app offers a direct search functionality for hotels, and then provides a list, picture and map view of the results. Information about available hotels include the price, overall star rating and distance, in addition to the ability to save hotels for later search.
The ability to search via images is quite refreshing, as it creates a better visual way to swipe through the picture-based results.
