Gogobot gets real-time hotel pricing and availability


Social travel service Gogobot simplifies and fine tunes hotel search with the launch of real-time pricing tools and an exclusive partnership with DealAngel, the innovative hotel-comparison service.

The new functionality will help Gogobot users cut through the noise to get unprecedented transparency on pricing when researching a trip, with such features as:

- A DealAngel-powered calendar that helps interested travelers identify the cheapest dates to go, based on average hotel prices, and avoid dates when tradeshows or other events drive up hotel prices.

- Gogobot's integration of real-time pricing and availability data, which allows users to plug in dates to see the actual prices of hotels for when they are traveling, which saves them from wasting time researching hotels that are either booked-out or too expensive on their desired dates.

- The ability to book with a single click, without all the annoying pop-up windows common on other review sites.

- The integration of DealAngel's Deal Ranking algorithm, which provides even more transparency in pricing by helping travelers quickly identify the best deals based on expected market rates for any hotel – as well as how much they can save. The ranking of the deals, from poor to excellent, is not available anywhere else, with typical travel sites often failing to provide the fair-market price from which the customer can make a comparison. For example, if a hotel temporarily drops its price by $100 per night, Gogobot's DealAngel ranking highlights the deal to the user, so they can make a fully informed choice.
