At the launch, Mr Luke Kefford (Founder) explained “While online booking sites for many years have been efficient at getting hotels to compete and offer competitive rates, travellers have had to manually check each site to find the best overall deal. The launch of CheapStay.Me changes this as travellers can now automatically find the best rates across 30+ major booking sites through a single search. What previously took hours can now be completed in seconds.”
With prior industry research revealing that 60% of respondents use travel apps and 42% book or research accommodation online using mobile devices, travel is increasingly being organised ‘on the go’ and apps are integral to this. A key concern with moving travel commerce to mobile devices, however is online security.
Mr Kefford further explained “To reassure travellers of their online security as they transition from desktop to mobile devices, the app extends our existing hotel price comparison service http://www.cheapstay.me. With the app comparing rates across some of the biggest booking sites around the globe, we enable travellers to choose who they prefer to book with. That way they not only find a great deal through us but can also rest assured their booking is secure with a booking site they already know and trust.”
