-- Die Kunden von Booking.com können jetzt über ihren Kindle Fire jederzeit und überall Hotelbuchungen vornehmen oder verwalten.

AMSTERDAM, 6. Dezember 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Booking.com (http://www.booking.com), das weltweit führende Buchungsportal für Hotels und Unterkünfte, gab heute die Einführung seiner kostenlosen, nativen App für den Kindle Fire in allen Amazon App-Shops bekannt. Mit der neuen App können die Kunden von Booking.com über ihren Kindle Fire Hotels oder Unterkünfte jederzeit und überall ganz leicht buchen und verwalten. Die kostenlose Booking.com Kindle Fire App ist in allen App-Shops von Amazon zum Herunterladen erhältlich, unter anderem in den USA, im Vereinigten Königreich, in Deutschland, Spanien, Frankreich, Italien und Japan. Die App gibt es für den Kindle Fire 7", den Kindle Fire HD 7" und den Kindle Fire HD 8.9". Booking.com ist ständig bemüht, seinen Zig-Millionen mobilen Kunden in aller Welt innovative Neuerungen zu bieten und liefert nun eine der ersten Apps, in die sich über die Amazon Maps API Karten integrieren lassen. Die native App für den Kindle Fire ist der neueste Zuwachs in der bereits jetzt sehr beliebten Reihe von Booking.com Apps für Apple, Android und Windows 8.

„Der Kindle Fire ist bereits jetzt ein großartiger Reisebegleiter, und wir sind stolz, der größte Betreiber von Buchungsportalen für Hotels und Unterkünfte zu sein, der eine native App für den Kindle Fire im Amazon App-Shop bietet", sagte Darren Huston, Chief Executive Officer von Booking.com. „Benutzer des Kindle Fire können sich jetzt einfach und schnell über die neuesten Kindle Fire-Geräte mit der Cloud von Booking.com verbinden und genießen zugleich durch die Integration von Amazon-Karten fortschrittliche Kartenfunktionen – wohin die Reise auch geht."

Die kostenlose Booking.com Kindle Fire App bietet die gleichen Funktionalitäten wie andere mobile Apps von Booking.com, einschließlich:

  • Synchronisation mit dem Benutzerkonto bei Booking.com – einfacher Zugriff auf Buchungen, Suchmaschinen und Hotels über jedes Portal von Booking.com
  • über 250.000 Unterkünfte in 178 Ländern
  • 2,6 Mio. Bilder von Hotels und anderen Unterkünften und mehr als 17 Mio. Gästebewertungen
  • eine leistungsfähige Suchmaschine – Hotelsuche am aktuellen Standort oder an einem der 41.000 Reiseziele von Booking.com in aller Welt
  • Last-Minute-Deals und exklusive Angebote für Newsletterabonnenten und Facebook-Fans
  • 25 Sprachen und 27 Währungen
  • Leistungen nach dem Buchungsvorgang, z. B. vergangene, aktuelle und zukünftige Buchungen, die im Offline-Betrieb abgerufen werden können, die Übertragung von Buchungen in den Kalender des Geräts, Buchungsbestätigungen per E-Mail, die Änderung oder Stornierung von Buchungen, einen schnellen Kontakt zum 24-Stunden-Kundendienst an sieben Tagen der Woche per E-Mail oder Telefon, ein Hotellageplan auf der Karte des Kindle Fire.

Die native Booking.com Kindle Fire App ist die neueste in der Familie der Buchungs-Apps von Booking.com. Die Buchungs-Apps gibt es auch für iOS und Android sowie über die mobile Website von Booking.com. Buchungen per Smartphone und Tablet auf Booking.com überstiegen 2011 eine Milliarde US-Dollar, und diese Zahl wurde allein im ersten Halbjahr 2012 bereits übertroffen. Die mobilen Apps von Booking.com für Android wurden bis heute mehr als 4 Millionen Mal heruntergeladen.

Nach Angaben von Amazon waren seit der Einführung neuer Geräte am 6. September 2012 neun von 10 der meistverkauften Produkte auf Amazon.com Kindle-Geräte, Kindle-Zubehör und digitale Inhalte. Der weltweite Verkauf von Kindle-Geräten während des Erntedank-Wochenendes 2012 hat sich im Vergleich zur Vorjahresperiode verdoppelt.
