Jet-setting BlackBerry addicts now have a few more convenient travel tools at their disposal, thanks to today's update of the BlackBerry Travel app to version 1.1. After releasing the first iteration of BlackBerry Travel back in February, it appears the folks at RIM have listened to user feedback and rolled some of the louder suggestions into this newest release.

One of the splashiest new features users will find in 1.1 is Mobile Rental Car Booking. According to RIM, the updated app can now help you "book a rental car from almost any rental car agency anywhere in the world." And perhaps just as important, the app now lets you complete such bookings in local currencies. With added support for 20 international currencies, travelers should experience fewer headaches when reserving cars and hotel rooms in different countries. Travelers should also be pleased to find that Version 1.1 has added a handy World Clock, which lets you easily view times across multiple locations worldwide.

BlackBerry Travel 1.1 is available for free in the BlackBerry App World.
