Travelodge customers can now download an application to their iPhone which will inform them of the nearest hotel using satellite navigation.
The iBooker is available to download for free from iTunes, and once installed will inform users of the five nearest Travelodge hotels to their current location. Rooms can then be booked directly through the application.
The Travelodge iBooker is the latest innovation by the budget hotel chain – last month it unveiled its Business Account Card, offering corporate customers eight week’s credit and the ability to track hotel expenses online (see online news February 22).
