To make things even easier ebookers has released an app for pay as you go and contract phones running iOS – the ebookers Travel app for iPhone and iPad. The app lets users book hotels, flights and sort out hire cars in just a few simple steps, making it even easier to escape the everyday stresses and strains, whether it is for a last minute get away or summer vacation.
What does it do?
Providing a one-stop-shop for all your travel needs, ebookers is a simple and straight-forward app which allows you to book transport and accommodation for all types of excursion. What’s more, it comes packed with exclusive mobile only discounts and last minute deals, so you’re guaranteed to stumble upon some great offers.
The simple user interface may seem a little basic, but you’ll soon realise that the no frills design is perfect and anything more would just get in the way of what is a very efficient method of organising a trip without having to leave the comfort of your own home or even switching on the laptop.
What we liked?
Navigating around the app is effortless and with a range of filtering options on board users can tailor their search to find exactly what they need, in super quick time.
With 110,000 hotels in its database there’s something for everyone, wherever you are in the world. There’s also a reviews section to check out what others thought of the accommodation, and with an interactive map to see exactly where each hotel is located, you can quickly make comparisons to ensure you pick the most convenient place.
Booking flights and cars is just as swift and in a few taps you’ll have sorted your entire journey. When departure day comes ‘Flight Status’ lets users know if there have been any delays and at any point should you need to be reminded of your details it’s all kept securely under the ‘My Trip’ section.
What could be better?
On the whole there’s very little to fault about the app apart from the fact that you have to begin the whole booking process again should you lose your Wi-Fi or 3G connection. This could prove to be very frustrating, particularly when going through the final stages of the booking procedure, as you could well be left wondering if your details have gone through. It’d be great to see an additional function on board that saves every stage of your search should the handset’s connection cut out.
Whether you’re planning on jetting off into the sunset or need to book a last minute place to stay, ebookers has it covered.
Its simple, detailed sections are easy to understand and even if you’ve never used the app before it shouldn’t take you too long to get to grips with, which is great if you’re booking a last minute trip in a hurry.
A range of mobile deals, exclusive to those who download the app, provide a huge incentive, and what’s more it’s free. Why not let your smartphone do all the hard work and give ebookers a try?
