BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 4, 2014
BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Egencia®, the business travel
brand of Expedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE), today announced new 'mobile only' hotel
deals to address business travelers' demand and necessity for last-minute
Deep discounts ranging from 10 to 50 percent off public rates will be
available to Egencia clients at approximately 7,200 hotels worldwide beginning
in mid-February. These deals are accessible to business travelers using
Egencia's new smart travel companion app, Egencia® TripNavigator. U.S. and
Canadian travelers will also be able to access 'mobile only' hotel deals via
Egencia's mobile booking website.
"Road warriors are adept at navigating their travel plans including
last-minute bookings," says Mark Hollyhead, Egencia's senior vice president of
the Americas. "Our new mobile hotel deals are designed to appeal to those
travelers who value flexibility and are cost-conscious."
More than one third of hotels participating in Egencia's 'mobile only' deals
program are also offering same day cancellations and loyalty points to
travelers. Hotels are based in North America, Europe, the Middle East and
Africa, Latin America and Asia-Pacific.
"We're delighted to partner with Egencia to offer last-minute mobile deals
from dana hotel and spa to business travelers," says Liana Clark, director of
sales and marketing for the dana hotel and spa in Chicago. "Our modern
boutique hotels cater to the needs of road warriors by offering complimentary
gym access and in-room Wi-Fi with power plugs for multiple devices. These are
just a few things we're doing to make life away from home easier for those who
travel most for work."
Hotels benefit from Egencia's 'mobile only' offering as it provides them with
the opportunity to capture last-minute business travelers that are in
proximity to their properties.
Laurie Miyake, travel administrator for Amada America, Inc., says, "Our
service engineers are on the road five days a week and will take full
advantage of Egencia's mobile only hotel deals. Frequently they do not know
the exact area of a city where they will complete the final job of the night,
or where they need to start tomorrow's job until late in the day. Now they can
tap the Egencia app, search nearby hotels and secure a deal."
