ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Last Minute Travel, a leader in last minute travel deals on hotels, flights, vacation homes, cruises, car rentals, activities and other travel products, today announced that its mobile app, Last Minute Travel Deals, has been downloaded over half a million times since launching in late-March of last year.
LastMinuteTravel.com was founded in 1996 as the first web site serving time-starved travelers. Today, the Last Minute Travel Deals app has an inventory of over 100,000 hotels worldwide, flights from more than 175 carriers, over 25,000 vacation homes, approximately 10,000 activities and transfers, and 18 car rental brands with 25,000 pick-up locations worldwide. The company partners directly with travel providers all over the world, which allows LMT and the LMT Deals app users to access bulk-rate, agent-level prices without markups – either day-of or in advance.
“We pioneered a website for consumers to find and book last second travel deals nearly 20 years ago and now we’ve brought our massive inventory and unrivaled rates to over half a million mobile users,” said Omer Chehmer, Head of Mobile Communications for Last Minute Travel. “In a rapidly emerging market where travelers are increasingly turning to mobile devices to book hotels and other travel products day-of, the Last Minute Travel Deals app offers quick searches and great value for your dollar – regardless of your location.”
On the heels of its first half a million users, today the LMT Deals app rolled out a new app interface that enables users to one-click search for travel activities, car rentals, flights, and vacation homes – from the home page. The new facelift also simplifies and speeds up the process of one of the app’s main features, finding hotel “Deals Tonight”.
“The LMT Deals App already has an unparalleled inventory and unbeatable prices, but we are constantly reviewing user feedback and working to create the most user-friendly app possible,” said Chehmer. “People want options and great prices, but time-crunched travelers also value a quick, seamless process – and we offer that.”
