ROCKVILLE, MD--Choice Hotels International, Inc. announced the launch of RapidBook, enabling travelers to make reservations quickly and easily using a mobile device.
RapidBook streamlines the search and checkout functions by leveraging the preferences and other information customers opt to add to their online profile. A guest may tell Choice Hotels, for instance, that he or she prefers non-smoking rooms with a king bed. The mobile enhancement recalls the guest's preferences, provides similar rooms for future searches and also recalls payment information.
“RapidBook takes the frustration out of the mobile reservation process by eliminating the need to fill in information and credit card numbers on a tiny phone screen,” Robert McDowell, SVP, global distribution, Choice Hotels International, said in a statement. “Users simply enter their information one time when completing their online profile. After that, they're ready to book quickly through the Choice Hotels mobile website.”
