HotelQuickly has raised a further A$4.8m from investors including the semi-legendary William E. Heinecke, one of Southeast Asia’s most famous entrepreneurs.

The Series A-1 funding will be used to accelerate growth for the last-minute hotel booking app, which now has 3000 hotels on its books.

Mr Heinecke, CEO and Chairman of Minor International, commented: “We’re seeing a clear shift from online to mobile and as traditional booking channels lose ground there is tremendous opportunity for a service like HotelQuickly.”

Before this latest round, HotelQuickly’s most recent fund raising was for HKD9m last September.
