Travelocity’s iPhone application now helps on-the-go travelers find discounted hotel rates in the eleventh hour using Top Secret Hotels. The Top Secret Hotels service offers an easy way to shop hotels and find unpublished rates that are up to 55 percent off Travelocity’s regular rates for the same top hotels on the same day. This service answers the call of travelers who want to find a deal on a hotel room at the last-minute, with no hassle, no bidding, and no waiting. The addition of the popular tool comes after Travelocity found that more than 60 percent of hotels booked on the Travelocity iPhone application happen on the same day of the hotel stay.

“Whether on a road trip or going on a spontaneous getaway, lots of travelers are regularly making last-minute bookings on a mobile device,” said Beth Murphy, Travelocity’s Vice President of Product Marketing. “Top Secret Hotels for the iPhone helps these travelers find a great hotel deal, right when they need it.” Top Secret Hotels is a service by which customers can shop for heavily discounted hotels without knowing the name of the hotel until after booking.

Along with shopping and booking Top Secret Hotels, Travelocity’s iPhone application also gives on-the-road travelers a quick view of nearby gas stations, as well as easy access to their Travelocity itineraries, up-to-the-minute information on flight status, security line wait times, local weather, seat maps, traffic and airport driving directions. In addition to these useful travel tools, the application also gives consumers who are planning travel a variety of destination guides, with local information on popular events, activities, and restaurants. Users can also search a number of vacation package (flight + hotel) deals for trips ranging from romantic beach getaways to adventurous ski trips with the family, based on price range and desired travel dates.
