Expedia Hotels for Android is a fully developed, user friendly travel app that can help you save money on that next dream vacation.
Expedia Hotels is one of the nicest travel apps I've personally tried. I recently booked a hotel and just double checked the rates here, and they indeed matched the best price I found. However, it took me a lot more hunting and I could have save myself a great deal of time if I had just booked through this app.
The nice thing about this one is how intuitive it is. Just type in a destination to find hotels within the vicinity, and it displays results in a variety of ways; by location, rating or price. Just tap on a result to see details about each hotel and place your booking. The information is laid out in a visually pleasing manner that makes sense. Pictures loaded fast and rendered nicely. The maps had their usual hangs and stutters, but actually populated quite well compared to other travel apps I have used.
Need a flight? Well you're in luck, because you can book those here too. Sometimes I'm tickled by the simplest of things, and I really loved how when checking flights, the app goes to a load screen of an airplane window with a view of the great blue sky outside. The best part, is you can even slide the shade on the window closed if you want to take a little virtual nap.
Expedia Hotels runs smoothly and the prices were comparable to the bargain hunting I did on my own. I will definitely use this app in the future.
