Travelzoo launches iPhone app designed to woo last minute holidaymakers

Travel deals website Travelzoo has launched its first iPhone app in the UK and Europe, allowing subscribers to access travel deals while on the go.

The app also uses GPS to locate the closest deals to the user, so wherever subscribers are in the UK, they will be able to grab a deal.

The UK launch of the iPhone app comes on the day Apple unveils its hotly anticipated iPhone 5.

In the United States, where the app launched on July 28th 2011, it received 75,000 downloads in one month, gaining a five-star rating in the App Store.

Joel Brandon-Bravo, managing director for Travelzoo UK, said, “The Travelzoo iPhone app will completely transform our relationship with our subscribers.

“People can now travel from city to city and take advantage of viewing the much-loved Travelzoo Top 20 or accessing the ‘Local Deals Near Me’ function, bringing the best deals from the area they are in right to their iPhone.

“Effectively, users could even be thousands of miles from home, standing in the middle of New York, and still find the very best deals close to them at that very moment.

“We believe the combination of having all Travelzoo deals in one place, and the ability to redeem vouchers on an iPhone rather than print them off, will be a significant benefit for savvy travellers who want instant access to the most outstanding travel and entertainment deals on the market.”
