ebookers on the go hotel app now available fo Android

The handy Hotels app by leading online travel agent ebookers.ie is now available for Android - and comes with great money-saving deals.

The ‘Hotels by ebookers’ app is a user-friendly, on-the-go tool for holiday makers to search and book hotels. Users can find savings of up to 65% on hotels with exclusive mobile deals and promotion code offers.

With holiday bookings via mobile devices becoming increasingly popular, ebookers.ie is committed to developing the latest technology for its customers and reports that there has been a 102% year-on-year increase in visits to its site via a mobile device.

Users aren’t just casually browsing either. Bookings made on a mobile device via ebookers.ie have gone up 110% year-on-year.

ebookers.ie has found that it’s those looking for a more spontaneous night away that are embracing mobile technology most eagerly.  61% of mobile hotel bookings are made within 2 days or less of the actual stay.


Designed specifically for Android phones, the app offers those on the move a simple way to search-and-book the complete offerings of ebookers hotels. By relying on the Android’s GPS capabilities, users can search for destinations all over the world by powerful comparison tools.

Hotels can be listed by value, price or distance, which are then pinpointed onto an interactive map so customers can easily head to their nearest location. Plus this allows for users to compare hotels and choose the best one for them, making this Android app a great addition to the ebookers.ie mobile offering.

Rob Define, Director of Product Strategy and Mobile, comments: ‘’We believe in making it easier for our customers to book wherever, whenever. The launch of the ebookers’ Hotel app for Android users is just one of the many ways we are dedicated to offering an easier booking experience for all our customers. We’ve learned a lot about the booking behaviour on mobile devices and this is shaping the way we think about the future of how travel is booked. We’re investing heavily in our mobile technology to provide our customers with the best user experience, for whatever type of device they choose. With our current successes of mobile bookings to date and as an online travel agent offering flights, hotels and car hire – there are huge opportunities for expansion ahead.’’
