Remember the last time you jumped out of a plane and thought, “Oh shoot! I forgot to book a hotel for my family getaway this weekend!” – wasn’t that horrible? Didn’t you wish there was a way to easily and quickly book a hotel room from almost anywhere, even at the very last minute?
All kidding aside, not many travelers find themselves jumping out of airplanes like extreme athlete and stuntman, JT Holmes (pictured above), but a vast majority do have a need to book accommodations on-the-go or in-a-pinch – especially as the use of mobile devices as consumer travel tools increases.
In tune with this trend and the needs of travelers, hotels.com continues to launch new applications with sophisticated functionality, such as its high-speed mobile booking application, which allows users to book rooms at its network of almost 140,000 worldwide hotels.
What’s more, today, hotels.com launched an exciting, “extreme” campaign centered on this valuable app; teaming up world-renowned skydiver, JT Holmes, to put on a wild digital demonstration to prove just how easy it is to book a room while doing just about anything – even flying at over 115 miles per hour in a 15,000 foot freefall!
This stunt is a live-action version of an animated television commercial, produced by hotels.com, in which claymated characters also book a hotel room while on a skydiving vacation.
The hotels.com mobile booking app, which has been downloaded over a million times by iPhone and Android users, features exclusive mobile deals and over 20,000 last minute deals. It is available in more than 30 languages in more than 70 countries, and can access past and future reservations, even when offline. Mobile GPS functionality will allow the app to find the closest hotels with the best deals, based on a user’s current location. welcomerewards® loyalty points can also be tracked and redeemed through the app.
