Flight tickets, hotels, activities. These things are three of the most important things that travelers need when going on a well-deserved vacation. Before, searching and booking these services meant spending hours looking for and comparing prices from different travel service providers.
Fortunately, we now have smartphones. These devices brought about a whole new age which I’d like to call as “convenience renaissance”.
Several companies have utilized this technology to bring their services right at the customer’s fingertips. Today, we will be looking at the BookIt mobile app — an app that allows travelers to search, book, and purchase their tickets through their phone.
Subsequently, we will also take a gander at some of the BookIt App reviews to see how well this app works.
What is BookIt?
Before anything else, what exactly is BookIt? As mentioned above, it is an online travel agency that offers a way for customers to book their travel needs online. This includes services like accommodation, flights, car rentals, and things-to-do.
The company was founded by Arthur “Bud” Finlaw, who also serves as BookIt’s current Chief Executive Officer. According to him, the idea for the company can be credited to his wife Melody. BookIt began under the name of ReservationSystem.com — a small family-run travel search engine that operated out of their garage.
After several years, the company changed its name to BookIt.com and began hiring more people as it continued to grow.
The mobile app
While originally a website, the company began expanding the coverage of their services by developing a BookIt mobile app. It basically has the same functionalities as their website, except you no longer have to view it through a browser which makes the process a lot quicker.
The app reviews
On Google Play, BookIt app garnered a total of 3.2 stars while on the App Store, it only got 2 stars.
According to the BookIt App reviews written by those who downloaded it, the app itself tends to crash often and the booking process is sometimes faulty. Here are some of the reviews:
“Good website and service but bad mobile app. I booked my package through the website. Loved it. Was able to work out the details with friendly agents. Hoping the trip goes smoothly. However, I pulled up my trip on the mobile app. It had the flight and hotel on there but not the transfer information on there. You cannot browse through the app either.”
“Once you try to enter your destinations the drop down list appears but nothing is selectable. You can proceed to get itineraries, I’m forced to use the website.”
“Cannot select origin or destination through the app. Can this be fixed please? I am not able to browse on the desktop site via mobile.”
As you can see on the BookIt App reviews above, the app still suffers from a lot of technical difficulties. While the services themselves aren’t much of a problem, the unresponsive, broken, and unreliable mobile app just cannot be trusted for your travel needs.
