On Friday, Nov. 12, Orbitz launched its free mobile app for iPhone and Android, and with it, a new and exciting way to search, book and travel on the go. A travel powerhouse for mobile devices, the new Orbitz app lets you book flights, hotels, and rental cars; view your trips and flight status; and even find nearby hotels using your phone’s GPS system. Plus, app users still get the benefits of booking with Orbitz, like Price Assurance, secure booking and 24/7 assistance.
The groundbreaking app is also laying claim to some important firsts from an online travel agency (OTA); the Orbitz app is the first of its kind to let Android and iPhone users search and book hotels, flights and rental cars, all from within a mobile app.
Search and book flights, hotels and cars, all within the app. Find hotels near you using your phone’s GPS, and even book a room for the very same day. View your trips anytime, anywhere – even without an Internet connection. Check flight status and count on 24/7 assistance.
And just released in 2011: the Orbitz app for iPad, which empowers customers with an intuitive search-and-book experience designed specifically for the device. It offers travelers the entire selection of Orbitz hotel properties, powerful comparison tools and secure booking in just three taps. Download free app.
