Useful apps for travel
Are you getting ready for vacation? Make sure your vacation starts at the airport. Say goodbye to the unexpected or boredom between layovers by turning to technology. Here are 5 categories of useful apps that will help you save money, explore new places, but most of all – relax.
Choose the smart holiday
The first step to the ideal vacation is to find the ticket to the desired destination, at an advantageous price. So that you don't waste time browsing hundreds of sites, install yourself Hopper. Hopper is a mobile application through which you can track the price of flights. Find out, in parallel, when it's the right time to make a purchase. As a user, you can compare the prices and facilities of more than 250 airlines. In addition, you will receive notifications when the price of the ticket you want drops, with the chance to save up to 40% of the price.
Another app, designed specifically for finding cheap flights, is Skyscanner. If you have already chosen your destination, all you have to do is find the best offer using the available filters (price, flight duration, number of stops, etc.). Tip: To save more, be sure to use the "Top Deals" and "Price Alert" sections.
Make time fly before takeoff
Are you already at the airport, anxious that around 30.000 flights arrive late every day globally? How about banishing negative thoughts and stop watching the clock around the clock? Use your phone in an interactive way. Relax by calling fun games, such as variants of online poker. In addition to boosting memory, online poker helps reduce stress and anxiety levels. You can either start with the popular variants Texas Hold'em and Omaha Hi, or with a variant of poker that many know from the movies: 5 Card Draw. You can also venture into super fast 3-player Sit&Go BLAST tournaments. All are available for free. Whichever option you choose, rest assured, you won't notice when the time has flown by.
Stay in a budget friendly hotel
We all like to feel good on vacation without breaking the bank. In the age of technologies, the desired comfort is a… download away. It only takes a second to download the apps. Instead, the benefits will be felt throughout your stay.
If you're an avid traveler, you may have already turned to Booking.com or airbnb. Booking is the best-known way to find a suitable room in a hotel, anywhere in the world, at the right price. On the other hand, Airbnb provides you with more than 6 million options in 191 countries.
A lesser-known but equally useful app for travelers is Priceline. Through it you can search not only hotels, but also flights, rental cars or cruises, with discounts.
You have the perfect itinerary
Popular destinations they look good in pictures, but they come with a lot of people and flashes. Those who want a special vacation can turn to applications designed to reveal lesser-known places. Lonely Planet is one of them. Expect inspiring recommendations accompanied by gorgeous photos. To make sure you don't miss a single point in the itinerary, install on your phone and TripCase. The app will take care of the entire route from the moment you send it the trip confirmation email. It can prove just as useful Viator. Viator offers tours that include day trips as well as week-long adventures with transfers included.
Travel by car without worries
If you're in the camp of those who love to rent an RV, you might be interested pitchup. With its help, you find caravan parks and reserve campsites, depending on the equipment you have.
To avoid unpleasant surprises, install yourself Google Maps and Waze. The first app reports official issues and traffic existence. The second tells you where there are pits or police checkpoints. Last but not least, make sure you don't miss anything you want to visit. Citymapper helps you identify the fastest route to your destination. How? Giving you directions to the nearest bus and train stations. The app also has a chat function, which allows you to always update your location to friends and family. And if you don't think it's enough, opt for Rebel. With Rebtel you don't need internet to contact your loved ones. The app connects to local phone lines, giving you cheap calls in 51 countries around the world.
On your next trip, don't forget to have your phone well charged and an external battery. There are tons of apps that help you get the most out of your vacation. From finding the perfect ticket to various fun games, no useful app should be missing. Especially since such applications encourage fun and pleasant memories, while taking care of your budget.
