HRS launches new app for Google Chrome

Hotel portal HRS has launched a new web app for Google internet browser Chrome.

HRS operates a global electronic hotel reservation system for business and private travellers based on a database of more than 250,000 hotels in all price categories in Germany, Europe and the rest of the world.

The free app gives Chrome users access to all these properties.

It includes a local hotel search with maps and a search panel to filter the range of hotels.

The app also features guest reviews, detailed descriptions of hotels and photos and videos. Users can also integrate Google Street View.

More than 25,000 companies are currently connected directly to the HRS system, which they use to make all their bookings worldwide as a way of cutting costs.

Registered business travellers can access corporate discounts of up to 30 per cent on the price that day, said HRS in a statement.

The company’s chief executive Tobias Ragge said: “We are delighted to be among the first in the travel industry to create an app specifically for Google Chrome.

“With just one click, the app opens the doors of more than a quarter of a million hotels.”
