When you travel, you rely on your phone to connect to your email, get you onto the Internet and keep in touch with friends and family. However, you might not be using your phone to its fullest potential because there are so many apps you can add to it that will make your travel experience much easier. Here are just a few to consider downloading:
Packpoint: Before you even get on a plane or hit the road, this app will come in handy. It helps you to pack. All you need to do is tell it is where you are going, how long you will be there and what activities you have planned. It will generate a packing list for you based on your answers – and, of course, the weather — so you don’t forget anything. You can still take off items or add those that you want to bring.
Hopper: How many times have you sat at your computer, wondering if the price of your flight is going to change? Should you buy it now or wait to try and save some money? That’s where Hopper comes in because the app tells you when to book for the biggest savings. If it doesn’t want you to book the flight now, it will notify you when that price drops and that it’s the right time.
Skiplagged: This app helps you to find hidden cities to save money. What that means is that you fly to your hidden city and have a stopover and then continue on to your destination. It often is more affordable than flying direct, perfect for travelers on a budget.
HappyCow: If you’re vegan you know how hard it can be to find places to eat when you’re traveling. This interestingly-named app lists vegan and vegetarian restaurants in nearly 10,500 cities worldwide. Each restaurant listing comes with a short description of the menu and reviews. The app is $3.99.
Dayuse: How often have you had a layover and wish you had a hotel room just take a nap and grab a shower, but not stay overnight? Dayuse helps you to do this because their app offers unused hotel rooms at a whopping 75 percent off the hotel’s regular rate. If you just want to pop in to relax or use the pool or the gym and you can choose your room times (e.g. 7am-1pm, 12pm-4pm or 11am-11pm) from over 3,000 hotels around the world.
