Today, we want to tell about another startup at Bolt acceleration process. For sure, most of you already know it. Hot.co.uk is an app for last-minute hotel room bookings, promising to save consumers up to 50% off standard hotel room prices when searching for same-day availability.
This app allowing Smartphone owners to search for and book hotel rooms for the same day in a variety of cities with discounts up to 50%
Every night 620,000 hotel rooms in Spain remain unoccupied. Because of that hotels lose per year an average of 1.5 million Euros in non-commercialized hotel rooms. The Hot Hotel app aims to help rectify this to the benefit of both hotel and potential guests, matching travelers searching for a hotel with unoccupied rooms, for a fraction of the usual price.
Hot.co.uk founders believe that it is a great business opportunity for hotels. Spain has the second highest penetration of smartphones use in Europe. In addition, currently between 15% and 20% of hotel reservations are booked on the same day.
For the user of the application, Hot.es shows, at all times, those hotels by city and category that best prices offered. In this way, they can access rooms with a discount that can be up to 50% less than standard rates.
Hot.co.uk is a perfect app for business people who have to spend a night outside their hometown, young people looking for a last minute getaway, drivers who have been drinking and need a hotel
Hot is also the first hotel reservation “application” that systematically offsets the carbon footprint for all reservations. Hot.co.uk’s automatic offsetting solution is the first of its kind in the hotel reservation sector.
