Mobile: Booking tours and rentals is about to get a whole lot easier

Posted on Updated on

We have great news for all mobile users: It’s about to get a whole lot easier to find and book tours and rentals directly from your smartphone.

The WebReserv mobile app has passed the final beta testing stage and will soon be released to the iTunes App store.

The new app gives enables your customers to conveniently find and book using their smartphone. We designed it to make it easy to search nearby attractions by activity/type, distance or location.

Many customers already use Yelp or Google Places to locate nearby attractions and activities. Yelp and Google can show your website address and phone number, but they can’t show availability, pricing, or let the customer book online.

The WebReserv App solves that.  By using the WebReserv App, your customers can find you and complete a booking in minutes.
