OneTravel, one of the nation’s oldest and most recognized travel sites, announces its newest technological endeavor in partnership with Tidal Pool Software, introducing “Wanderlust,” a free iPhone application providing travelers with unlimited mobile access to OneTravel’s bargain airfares. This new application, the first of its kind for OneTravel, allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to find and book OneTravel’s competitive airfares directly from their mobile devices.

Powered by OneTravel’s propriety travel technology, Wanderlust searches millions of airfare combinations from over 400 airlines worldwide to get travelers the best possible deal, with up to 60% savings.
