BlackBerry Travel 1.1 has been released today in BlackBerry App World and the latest version includes global rental car booking, and a world clock feature allowing users to track the time across multiple locations and time zones. BlackBerry Travel now also supports hotel and rental car booking in over 20 currencies.
Since the launch of BlackBerry Travel 1.0 in mid-February, localized versions have been introduced in 5 languages and 49 countries, receiving over 1 million downloads. The application uses around 8 partners, including United/Continental, Lufthansa, Hilton, Starwood, Accor and Travelport.
The BlackBerry Travel app also features automatic trip scanning just like WorldMate, where your travel itineraries are populated as soon as you get confirmation emails.
