Last-minute booking app HotelTonight has revealed details of what it claims to be the ‘next great innovation’ in hotel booking.
The same day Rate Drop options and seven days out Bonus Rate offer savings of up to 40% that cannot be found anywhere else, according to HotelTonight.
The app’s co-founder and chief executive, Sam Shank, trailed the announcement at last November’s Phocuswright conference in Los Angeles.
The two new deals are available from seven days in advance until 2am on the day of arrival.
• Rate Drop – a special same-day offer that appears in the app starting at 3pm at hotels nearby. Rate Drop is available globally starting today.
• Bonus Rate – a rotating offer that can be found up to seven days in advance. Hotels offer these special, lower-than-ever rates to interest travelers from other destinations to visit their location. Bonus Rate is available immediately in select cities and will be rolled out to all HotelTonight destinations in the coming weeks.

Shanks said: “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.
“Utilising 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.”
The new offers can be applied at the hotels discretion, and added or modified instantly across all platforms.
