Booking Services Enabled Travel on the Fly
A new crop of apps empowers travelers to book a hotel room—for a few hours from now. HotelTonight, Room 77, and Jetsetter Now, for instance, make the most of the brisk hotel market with last-minute bookings at big discounts. Not to be left behind, the online booking giants (Kayak, Priceline, Orbitz, Travelocity, and Expedia) have also introduced last-minute apps that use GPS to find available hotel rooms near you.
