Sees Mobile Revenues Triple

A few weeks ago at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we caught up with hotel-booking service, to talk about the company’s approach to mobile. Today, the company has revealed that is saw the total transaction value of mobile hotel bookings more than triple last year, from $1bn (£650m) in 2011 to over $3bn in 2012.

“Booking.coms mobile apps for Android, iOS, and Windows 8 devices have been downloaded more than 20m times over the past three years,” said CEO, Darren Huston. “Our customers want the same, simple and seamless booking experience that we developed for the desktop on all their devices, and were making sure they get it. Once they are signed into their accounts, all their credit card details, searches, favourites, and booking information will be securely accessible from the cloud. This allows our customers to book faster and have all their important information readily available, whether they are at home, in the office, or on the move.”
