SIX Travel – the world's first and only hotels booking platform that lets travelers book hotels directly through Instagram Stories and other online publishers has launched a new app. Built exclusively for iOS, available beginning today for download on the App Store, SIX Travel is hoping to capitalize on millennial's short attention spans by making things instantly bookable.
The travel industry is facing an age of overwhelming social discovery with 68% of the 83.1 million millennials now turning to Instagram to discover and book their travel online1. The new SIX Travel app aims to simplify travelers' decision-making process when booking stays for upcoming travel – and with a guarantee of the best available rates. With the platform, travelers are able to swipe up on Instagram stories (or click through the link in bio) to instantly book one of the 2,000+ hotels hand-selected to be featured on the app, or save for later. Moreover, SIX Travel is the first platform that enables social content creators to monetize their travel content, while allowing partners to track their performance and demonstrate value.
"We designed SIX Travel to enable people to book the world's most stylish hotels during their moments of discovery – directly from Instagram Stories with a simple swipe up, or from our award-winning iOS App," said Khalid Meniri, Co-founder and CEO of SIX Travel. "Our platform aims to harness the power of that social medium to revolutionize the travel landscape, changing the way hotels, creatives and consumers interact in a bold new way."
