A few weeks back my friend Shawn asked if I’d be up for a trip to Los Angeles at the end of the month, and of course my answer was a resounding yes. The only draw back is that he works for an airline, which means we’d have to travel spontaneously. Meaning at this point I know I’m traveling to LA at the end of this month, but I’m not 100% sure on the dates. If we’re being honest though, any trip to LA is worth it to me. Especially seeing as how I wasn’t able to spend much time on the beach when I was there a few months ago, and thanks to the mobile nature of this blog I’m able to work from anywhere, even a beach. Also thanks to Booking.com traveling spontaneously is now even easier.

I actually used their Booking Now app when I was NYC last week, and it made booking a hotel room last minute a breeze. I stayed with a friend in Brooklyn this last trip, which was great, but after a long, long day of shows, meetings, and after-parties checking into a hotel that was 2 blocks from me versus taking a 45 minute train ride was a lot more appealing. And I’m all for those moments where “there’s an app for that” because that meant I was able to book my room with their app while sitting at dinner with friends, hop in a cab, and check into my hotel without having to pick up the phone.

While their Booking Now was the perfect option for my last minute hotel needs in NYC, the Booking.com app is perfect for scheduling those last minute trips like my upcoming trip to LA.

Moral of the story: travel spontaneously. You’ll thank yourself later, and thanks to Booking.com app + Booking Now app your checking account and sanity will also thank you.

  • Working in the hospitality industry I can’t tell you how much easier it is for a guest to book through one of these partners or just book online in general! Cutting out the middle man is always a good idea when it comes to making sure you’re getting exactly what you want!

    • Couldn’t agree more! Check in was a breeze when I used it in NYC – walked in the door, told them my name, had already paid via the app, and they handed me a room key. It was SO nice.
