HolidayPirates unifies its apps into one to rule them all
The new app makes it easier for users to navigate and find the best personalised travel deals
HolidayPirates, the world’s largest online travel community and leading source for travel inspiration and deals, has launched a new version of its multi-award-winning app that will replace its market-specific apps, and migrate its 10 million users to one unified platform.
With a sleek interface and custom filters, the free-to-use app, available on iOS and Android, will continue to inspire users with unbeatable low prices to locations previously considered unreachable on a small budget, and will be showcased through a new and intuitive easy-to-navigate platform.
Users will be able to recognise the signature feed with the best travel deals, curated by the company’s team of internationally renowned deal hunters, but other new features have been developed in response to user feedback, and include:
Users can now filter all deals by departure location, destination, and travel period, as well as view deals from every country in which HolidayPirates operates in. This will be especially useful for users that live close to neighbouring countries, or multiple airports.
Users will be able to opt-in to receive push notifications as soon as a deal to their preferred location is available.
David Armstrong, CEO of HolidayPirates, comments: “We are proud to launch a new unified app that has more functionality for our users, while still staying true to our goal to inspire users with the best travel deals. The app will empower our loyal users by providing a more enjoyable experience when they are deciding where to travel, as well as allow them to look through deals while they are on-the-go.” HolidayPirates occupies a unique position amongst its competitors in the travel and tourism space, providing users with not just the cheapest packages, but also the best travel deals for every budget, as well as inspiration for their next holiday. From luxurious romantic getaways, to cheap and cheerful city-breaks, HolidayPirates provides travel deals and inspiration for its millions of followers within a wide range of budgets.
As the industry moves away from physical travel agencies to a predominantly online presence - with the online travel industry estimated to be worth $762 billion by 2019 (Statista, 2017) - HolidayPirates continues to be at the forefront of the market, due to its scale and extensive expertise.
HolidayPirates is one of Europe’s fastest growing, free-to-use, travel search platforms and apps, providing users with the best value for money international travel deals. Since its inception in 2012, the company has grown into the biggest online travel community in the world, achieving 30 million monthly page visits, 10 million app downloads, and having launched services across 10 countries and 7 different languages.Back to Press Releases
