Book a holiday through your mobile

Mobile phones

I’d like to pass myself off as some kind of much-travelled, cosmopolitan bloke, but in truth, I’m more of a week in Wales kind of guy, with the occasion jaunt to Europe when time and money permit. Not sure why – with flights cheap and booking easy online, it’s not exactly a rich man’s pastime. In fact, you can even book via your phone now with Handy Traveller going live 02’s i-mode service.

With Handy Traveller technology, you can browse holiday and travel options, select something at the right price and time for you, then book and pay for it on your mobile, simply by sending a one-word text message.

Handy Traveller joins a number of big names that have signed up to i-mode in the past few months, including eBay and Right Move.
