Facebook App Turns Friends' Tips into Best-Priced Trips

Gekko, the personalized international hotel booking service, has unveiled a one-stop Facebook application that simplifies travel planning and purchasing with the help of friends and trusted sources.
The Gekko Facebook app:
  • Collects and organizes travel recommendations from friends
  • Introduces a one-click "Request-a-Deal" button which lets hotels, restaurants and bars reply directly with personalized offers
  • Allows Facebook-only deals targeting travelers based on their tastes
  • Allows users to book at the best available price
Members can share lists of favorites and offer personal insights on any topic, from the general (beachfront hotels) to the specific (midtown Manhattan sake bars).
