An extension to the Hotels.com site, the new app lets users search for and book a hotel in the destination they are travelling to via their Android or iPhone. The app also keeps a record of your upcoming and past reservations under "My Reservations", which shows where the hotels are located, the contact details and maps — and there's no need for internet access to see any of this information.

According to a Hotels.com spokesperson, "When using the Hotels.com app offline, the map shown is a static map of the hotel's location. However, when online, it will be a fully interactive Google map."

Besides the "My Reservations" section, you will need data connection to find and book a hotel, read guest reviews and see where the hotels are located via Google's interactive maps.

The Hotels.com app is handy for those who are already fans of the popular website, and great for that last-minute rush to book a hotel room while on the road.

The app is available in over 30 languages, and there are more than 20,000 accommodation deals on offer from around the world, according to Hotels.com.
