Major hotel booking app HotelTonight announced on Monday that it has opened a new office in Sydney, Australia, while adding two new destinations for travelers in the Caribbean.

HotelTonight’s office in Sydney will allow the company to better support travelers within Australia and the Asia/Pacific region. Australian travelers will now be able to book local deals at top-rated properties for stays reserved from seven days in advance up to the last minute.

HotelTonight has also added hotel deals in Melbourne and will be featuring additional cities in Australia over the next several months. Notable hotels in Australia include the 1988 Hotel, The Darling, the Lyall, and TFE Hotels Group. The HotelTonight app is now fully available for travelers on iOS and Android after operating in beta in the country for the last month.

“Australians are known to travel the world and have an inherent sense of adventure and spontaneity. Now, they can maximize that sense of adventure in exploring their own backyard, with access to great last-minute deals on fantastic hotels across the continent,” said Sam Shank, co-founder and CEO, HotelTonight, via a release. “In addition to being better able to understand and interact with the local community, our new office affords us the opportunity to establish a greater presence in the Asia/Pacific market as we continue our global expansion.”

HotelTonight is also tacking on two Caribbean destinations to its expanding international portfolio: the Dominican Republic and Bahamas. The company launched its first Caribbean destination, Puerto Rico, in 2013. It has seen rising demand and searches within the HotelTonight app for other island destinations throughout the region. It now offers stays at popular chains such as Viva Wyndham, Barceló, Bahia Principe and Hard Rock All-Inclusive Collection. The company plans to add more Caribbean destinations over the next several months.

“The Caribbean is a draw at any time of year — whether it’s New Yorkers escaping the winter chill or Floridians looking for a quick weekend away — and additional access to great deals in these hot locations makes it even easier for people to secure a last-minute getaway,” Shank said.

HotelTonight is now available in more than 30 countries, including Russia, where they launched earlier this year.
