NEW YORK, June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CheapOair, a leading flight-focused, next generation concierge travel service, is now offering customers the ability to download and save maps to their phone during their travels. This new feature will help CheapOair customers minimize reliance on expensive international data plans while traveling abroad.
CityMaps2Go has been integrated into the CheapOair app to provide users with the convenience of downloading maps of their destinations. When a customer makes a booking, the option to download a map of their booked destination is presented. Once the map is downloaded, it then becomes available for both online or offline use.
As the first online travel agency to successfully integrate downloadable maps into its app, this milestone is especially beneficial to customers without access to wireless or cellular service as GPS is still available even if the phone is offline. Customers can download the map on their devices through the "My Trips" section of the CheapOair app.
"This is a very exciting development for our team in order to drive post-purchase use of the app," said Daniel Lizio-Katzen, Senior Vice President of Product & Revenue at Fareportal. "Our goal is to create a full-service travel agency experience for our customers while still offering the convenience of using a mobile app."
CheapOair is continually expanding its products and services to provide customers with a complete travel experience including assistance prior to booking, throughout the booking process, and even once travel has commenced. The CheapOair app is available to download for free on the iTunes Store or Google Play Store.
