HOTEL DATE PICKER (ANDROID)
Business and leisure travelers need
an easy, simple way to select hotel dates
Research showed that business travelers
already know their travel dates, but leisure travelers tend to base decisions off of price. Users need a tool that shows the cheapest times to travel and makes it easy to select dates.
Research is the foundation of any design project, so for this date picker, I conducted several user interviews with both leisure and business travelers to find their pain points and goals.
To the right is one of the personas I made. A common point made in almost all of my interviews was that it’s time consuming to find the best hotel price. Most users will open up several tabs and windows searching accross multiple sites just to find the best price.
The calendar view shows the lowest average
for hotel rates on those specific dates. This way,
the user can see what times are generally the cheapest to stay in a hotel. They can also scroll easily up and down to view other months and select their desired dates by tapping and dragging.
The hotel results under the calendar update based on the calendar selection and show the user what hotels are available on different dates. Since our persona enjoys finding the best deals on luxury hotels, this allows him to view hotels and easily change dates without having to hit
any back buttons.
