Book A Hotel
To book a hotel, pan through to the ‘Hotels’ page and select ‘Search Now’, enter the city’s destination name, the date for intended check-in and check-out plus the number of guests then click the Expedia search button and you are on your way. You will notice, before you are even done typing in your destination name, that the app produces a convenient drop box with an extensive list of locations bearing a similar or matching name, so if you were unsure for any reason of the spelling or country’s name, this BlackBerry travel app provides that for you.
As you get to the next step you will see a list of hotels in no specific order really, listing their names, star ratings, locations, prices and current deals along with their profile photos. To save time and make your search even easier, the app situates a ‘Sort’ button at the top of the hotel listings along with a ‘Filter’ and a quick ‘Find’ icon. You can sort your list by the top picks, the day’s best deals, price ranges from lowest to highest and vice versa, and get directions to the hotel destination from major sites in and around the city. Filters can be configured to a preferred price range and star rating and the 'Find' function allows you to simply type in the name of a particular hotel of choice so you can view its details immediately.
Once you choose a hotel, the app takes you to a complete profile page, including photos, to show the room accommodations, hotel property and attractions. Along with a description of the room types and corresponding prices. The address and location are also listed with an integrated map complete with directions, routing options, distances and more.
If you are not particular about using your credit card on your phone then you can book your hotel room right from this section of the app. Simply click on the ‘Book Now’ icon, confirm your reservation details, refine your preferences, read the cancelation policy then proceed in providing your personal and credit card details.
Further on you will see there are more options for you to call reservations directly as well as read the hotel policies, FAQs and general information regarding check-in and check-out times, services, activities, assistance and much more.
