Booking.com has launched a new app for Android to capture more of the growing trend towards booking accommodation on a mobile device. Research by the website revealed 86% of global travellers are likely to book accommodation using a smartphone in 2015, with 85% agreeing that because technology makes booking on the go easier, they can be more spontaneous when it comes to taking trips.
The accommodation search and bookings company already has an app for Apple users. Almost half of worldwide reservations made within 48 hours are being booked on a mobile device, a significant portion of these being on an Android. Android users who download the app will gain access to over 690,000 properties in more than 80,000 destinations.
