    Twitter based technology solution empowering last moment travelers to Boise Idaho.London, UK, 21 September 2009 – Inoqo (http://www.inoqo.com), launched a Twitter-based hotel booking engine today, providing an innovative win-win service to hotels adapting to the current trend of last-moment bookings, and travelers seeking urgent hotel accommodation. The Modern Hotel (www.themodernhotel.com) is the first hotel in Idaho to collaborate with Inoqo to offer last-moment deals to travelers who are looking for a great value hotel offer.

    “The current economic climate has driven increasing amounts of leisure and business travel to be planned at the last minute.” says Bretton Putter founder of Inoqo. “The Modern Hotel can now meet these needs by harnessing the real-time power of Twitter.”

    Inoqo allows hotels to easily advertize unique high-value packages on Twitter, filling otherwise vacant rooms at the last moment. Hotels that are looking to increase occupancy and up-sell services whist retaining price parity can utilize Inoqo as a powerful service, to supplement their existing distribution and revenue management strategies.

    “The Modern is excited to partner with Inogo to bring our customers great last minute savings,” said Elizabeth Tullis, owner of the Modern Hotel. “We work hard to make sure our customers benefit from cutting edge technologies and were excited to learn about the opportunity to use Twitter to offer special last minute deals.

    For travelers with last-moment accommodation requirements in Boise Idaho , Modern Hotel and Inoqo provide a valuable service by only publishing great value hotel packages available within the next 48 hours. The service is available from today, with launch hotels in the US, UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
