Great news from the team here in Hope&Glory as we’ve won the UK PR for same-day hotel booking app, Blink Booking.
It’s a lovely win and our first (that we can announce, anyway) travel client.
For those who haven’t come across them before, here’s the pitch …
Founded in 2011, Blink already has over 200,000 users across Europe and offers same-day hotel rooms in over 50 cities across seven European countries, including eight in the UK.
Blink offers ridiculously low rates for those who book “last second”. Hotels are offered at a lower price than web-based OTAs (or online travel agents).
Available on both iOS (iPhone and iTouch) and Android platforms, Blink Bookings offers customers anything up to 40% off hotel rates (compared to those available at online travel agents). The app offers hotels in eight UK cities (London, Birmingham, Brighton, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester) with more being added all the time.
Anyway, we’re super-chuffed and James, Carl and Laura have been getting their teeth stuck into the business already with some cracking pieces – including storming every broadsheet with comment on the recent OFT announcement on price agreements in the category.
Lots more work to come from the team …
