Hotels.com Integrates Uber Into Its Mobile App

Hotels.com announced the integration of Uber into its mobile app, enabling customers to book an Uber to take them directly to their hotel at the touch of a button.

This integration is powered by Button, the mobile economy’s leading app discovery platform, so customers using the Hotels.com Android app can now book an Uber in 30 different languages and in all countries that Uber operates in.

Customers staying at any property through Hotels.com will see an Uber Button appear in their app on the day their hotel stay begins, both on the homepage and in the reservation section. When a user taps the ‘Ride there with Uber’ button, their current location and hotel address is automatically pre-populated within Uber’s application, making the entire experience seamless.

Dan Craig, Senior Director of Mobile for Hotels.com brand explains: ‘At Hotels.com we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of mobile technology developments in the travel industry, so being one of the first OTAs to offer this Uber service is fantastic news. Like us, Uber are technology leaders in their field and together we’re making it easy for travellers to get to their hotel in a hassle-free way, so they can start their trip sooner. We’re always looking for ways to enhance our in-stay mobile offering, so watch this space for more exciting features coming soon.’
