There is a new app that lets you take advantage of upgrade offers on your next hotel stay, so you can get the best room you could get at a reduced price.

The app is called Upgradus, and it was born out of an idea from founder and now CEO Guy Ratcliffe when he realized how “there were even better rooms or suites above my budget that were empty ”during several of his hotel stays. He thought about how he would have accepted a discounted upgrade offer if an upgrade had been made, and that’s how Upgradus was born.

The way Upgradus works is simple: Customers let the app know that they are interested in an upgrade offer on the hotel stay they’ve already booked, and Upgradus then communicates this to the hotel. In this way, the hotel can make an offer to customers in the time that elapses between the reservation and the actual check-in, giving them sufficient time to determine whether they wish to accept the upgrade or not.

If they accept it, they will pay the difference directly to the hotel in what Ratcliffe describes as a ‘win-win solution’, as guests will have the chance to ‘enjoy a more luxurious experience’ and hotels will fill in. premium rooms that would otherwise remain empty without “leaving huge unrealized potential income every day”.

Of course, the app cannot guarantee that customers will receive an offer as these depend on hotel availability and reservation. He acts as an intermediary between them and the hotel, so that everything goes well.
