BlackBerry Travel v1.1 Beta BlackBerry Travel v1.1 Beta

(Here’s another awesome guest post from Andreas to talk about the updated BlackBerry® Travel™ app – frequent travelers should definitely check it out! – Ed.)

I’m happy to announce that we’ve released BlackBerry Travel v1.1 today in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. I am very pleased by the reception of the application so far and appreciate all the great comments and suggestions we’ve received since we launched BlackBerry Travel v1.0 in mid-February in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Spain.

Since February, we’ve introduced a localized version and released it in five languages and in 70 countries. To date, there have been more than 1 million downloads. We’ve also made great progress in working with our industry partners and have signed up 8 partners to our BlackBerry Travel ecosystem, including well-known and respected brands such as Air Canada, United/Continental, Lufthansa, Hilton, Starwood, Accor, KLM and Travelport.

Today’s release introduces a variety of new features and enhancements:

  1. Mobile Rental Car Booking: To get you where you need to go, you can now book a rental car from almost any rental car agency anywhere in the world, whenever you need transportation.
  2. World Clock: One of the most often-requested features, we now have a world clock that has been designed to allow you to track the time across multiple locations worldwide. This is very handy when trying to figure the best time to call family back home!
  3. Support for Car and Hotel Bookings in local currencies: We’ve added 20 international currencies to accommodate booking in local currencies.

Download the app from the BlackBerry App World (note: it may take up to 24 hours for the application to appear in BlackBerry App World) to give the new version a try and let us know how you like it. Thank you for your support and safe travels!
