If you’re not a planner and like to do most of it spontaneously on your smartphone, then you’ll love HotelTonight’s announcement this week.

In case you’re not familiar with the popular travel app, HotelTonight allows users to find discounted last-minute hotel accommodations. Since its launch in 2010, the app has been downloaded by more than 11 million users.

This week, they’re giving more travelers additional reasons to download with the release of “Bonus Rate” and “Rate Drop.”

In a statement, HotelTonight explained:

These new and exclusive deals are available from seven days in advance up to 2 a.m. day-of, and are not found through any other travel app or website.

Essentially, Bonus Rate is geographically-based. For example, any New York City hotels looking to grab customers in Los Angeles, the app offers these customers additional discounts if reservations are made within the next week (seven days). In this case, the app will only show these Bonus Rates to customers in Los Angeles.

Rate Drop, on the other hand, is for hotels to provide further discounts at 3 p.m. uniquely for same-day bookings. This is an interesting new aspect for hotels to specifically target discounts toward filtered customers so more rooms can be sold.

This will come in handy specifically for last-minute travelers who are always looking for last-minute deals. Depending on the success of these features, we predict that more hotel apps will launch similar functions later this year.

HotelTonight is available on iOS, Android & Windows.
