Global travelers can use the mobile app to find a hotel, make a reservation, check loyalty club status, redeem awards, access their digital wallet, purchase e-gift cards, provide feedback and much more
Phoenix – March 15, 2018 – IVHTravel (www.ivhtravel.com), a loyalty-based travel site specifically for member travelers wanting to book private rates on accommodations, activities and rental cars, is now LIVE as a mobile app on the App Store and Google Play. The IVH Travel App enables travelers to choose from and book more than 1.1 million global lodging choices, while the InnCentives Loyalty Club (built into the app) gives members access to special private rates with free extras. People can now book roomnights with more variety, receive the best rates, earn cash-back rewards and redeem points for eGift cards or future lodging worldwide right from their smartphones or tablets.
“People love IVHTravel.com and the InnCentives Loyalty Club; they work in tandem by creating an engaging experience for guests while driving bookings for owners and operators,” said Pamela Barnhill, president and COO of IVH Travel and IBC Hospitality Technologies. “With fingertip access to the full portfolio of hotels and a growing base of alternative lodging PLUS member accounts and rewards, we believe bookings will flow even faster – and so will guest engagement and communications. Full guest information is available to owners and operators. Our customers have been asking for a mobile app for some time, and we are proud to deliver.”
When members log into their InnCentives account via the IVH Travel App, they will see the lowest un-published rates that are not available to the public. They can also publish reviews, track requests and activities, create and manage wish lists, share pictures with friends, receive special offers, and enjoy no blackout dates.
“The new IVH Travel App is a great way to drive bookings, drive-down customer acquisition costs, and bring hoteliers closer to their guests,” Barnhill said. “With this tool in hand, hoteliers are taking back control from the non-transparent channels, increasing revenues, and improving the overall guest experience.”
IVH Travel, powered by IBC Hospitality Technologies, was founded by hoteliers to combat the lack of guest information, affordable resources and all-inclusive rewards program. When travelers book at IVHTravel.com or via the new mobile app, the IBC booking engine captures full guest information that is shared with the owner.
