Roomlia has already been touted as the next-generation mobile hotel booking app that’s going to change the way travellers shop for and book hotel rooms on the fly.

The leading edge booking app is poised to become the premier mobile solution for hotel reservations after launching with a number of ‘market-first’ features such as allowing travellers to book last minute, day-of bookings at competitive rates exclusive to roomlia users, available up to 7 days from arrival.

Available for download on iOS, the app was designed by those in the know, Co-founders Michael Reichartz and Jim Ferguson who were early digital booking innovators at Expedia and responsible for building one of the most successful sales teams in the travel industry – growing Expedia’s hotel revenues more than 4000%, according to PR newswire.

Designed to take the fuss out of hotel bookings, roomlia offers a Swipe to book experience: a one-swipe, one-tap process creating the fastest booking experience in travel.

The user experience using roomlia is designed and optimised specifically for mobile, taking away “unnecessary stress” in the booking process.

The app’s location specific search also makes it quicker for users to browse and book hotels via a map of each city, showcasing the hotels in the area as well as the booking price.

“Our goal is to deliver the best mobile hotel booking experience for travellers and the easiest reservations channel for hotel revenue managers, and we believe we have achieved this with roomlia,”

Co-founder Michael Reichartz said to PR newswire. 

The app has initially launched in the US, and is expected to expand into other markets. Currently it features hotels in destinations including New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Miami, Orlando, and the Florida Keys – with acclaimed hospitality brands.
