The online travel agency now lets guests book rooms in secret hotels at big discounts from their mobile.

Travelocity‘s iPhone app now enables travelers to find  cheaper hotel rates at short notice by using their Top Secret Hotels service. This allows customers to search for discounted hotel rooms (up to 55% off their regular rates) but without knowing the name of the hotel until after they’ve completed the booking.

Travelocity was one of the first online travel companies to introduce an iPhone app but it only has a 2-star rating on the iTunes store.There is also competition from new apps by other companies such as Expedia. This addition, based on user trends, may make them more popular. They revealed that 60% of the hotels booked through their app are for same-day stays. Making the Top Secret Hotels service available from a mobile device meets the needs of those who want to find a last-minute, hassle-free deal that doesn’t entail bidding and waiting.
