There are very many things that may interfere with your travel plans from bad weather to any last minute travel companions who might want you to change your original holiday travel plans. One of the best ways to avert unexpected circumstance is to use applications that are available for your phone. If you are an android fan like I am, then here is a list of the best 5 apps for your holiday travel planning:
FlightTrack is undoubtedly one of the best business travel apps. However, it has a very extensive database with more than 1400 airlines and 3000 airports making it an invaluable app for families that are planning to travel during holidays. It is especially a must have travelling app for people who plan to travel by plane. The app keeps the user up to date with gates, any delays or flight cancellations information. This enables the user to constantly have first hand information every time and catch their plane or even book a different plane if it is required. It also makes it easier for the user to check maps and itinerary offline.
Most people prefer planes as a mode of transportation when going on holidays because flights are easier to keep track of compared to other modes of transportation. However, what if you want to explore the sceneries and natural beauty of the places you are visiting? It is fairly obvious that you cannot do this by plane. The best way to enjoy the gorgeous sceneries of places you are visiting is by using a bus or train. The AmTrack app enables you to enjoy the sceneries and landscapes by providing you with technicalities regarding your planned train/bus trip.
Do not worry about the slightly misleading app name. Kayak is one of the top apps that help travelers to compare flights, car rentals and accommodation charges. No matter what your location is the application gives you details on offers around where you are to enable you choose the cheapest/best deal when booking a hotel, booking low cost flights or renting a car. The app as allows you to keep an itinerary that you can edit at any time during your trip.
This is an app that gives you the best last-minute deals if you plan on booking a hotel room. HotelTonight app may show you offers that get you up to 70% off especially if you plan on booking a room until 2am. Although the app addresses major cities in the UK, Canada and the US, the developers are always adding more cities from around the globe each month.
