Price comparison browser add-on InvisibleHand has announced a new hotel search feature.
When a consumer starts searching for hotels, InvisibleHand works in the background, analysing the search and presenting them with a list of suitable offerings.
The service analyses factors such as price, location and hotel type, meaning a user looking for a 4 star hotel in the center of London will not be presented with accommodations in other areas or with lower star rankings.
Robin Landy, founder of InvisibleHand, said: “The idea is to make it much much easier to find a hotel in the right place at the right time for the right price.”
Landy is especially excited about the proximity search feature because it can save so much time. He believes most of the headache involved in finding a hotel is getting something you like that is not miles away from where you need to be.
Landy said: “This is an exciting new function and is still in the development stage. Our developers are working round the clock to bring this new dimension to our users who are used to finding the best deal for their flights.”
“They can now complete their perfect holiday by finding the right hotel at the right price. We believe the technology behind this new development is truly unique. Our hotel search technology is in tune with what users want and will look for the same or better-rated hotels in the same area at a better price. It’s a win-win situation for anyone looking to get away.”
To make sure users know what they are getting, InvisibleHand has also included verified reviews for their hotels. This gives the reviews more clout than an anonymous posting.
Currently, the hotel search feature is under active development and has only soft launched in beta. Landy said that while it is up and running, the company is still working on ironing out any last creases.
InvisibleHand is also working on another new feature. Landy said they are expanding into rental cars and that service will be rolled out sometime this year. This will give InvisibleHand a strong presence in the travel sphere, allowing them to provide complete travel planning advice and help.
The company is already approaching 2 million downloads of their service which gives them a great user base.
