BEST APPS FOR TRAVELLING
We can’t imagine our life without phone. It is really very useful for work, best way to connect with your friends and family. But let me tell you that your phone is just as useful on holiday as it is during the working week, but you’ll need new apps to make the most of it. From accessing airport lounges to co-ordinating your suitcase, these apps have you covered.
This surprisingly effective packing app asks pertinent questions about your upcoming trips — like their duration, your gender, destination, and planned activities — and automatically creates a list of things you probably want in a suitcase. It even customises items based on the weather.
It’s the gold standard of holiday planning; an app that automatically lists your travel details when you forward your itinerary to its email address, stores the information offline in case you need it en route, lets you share your plans with loved ones and, if you subscribe, sends you real-time alerts of flight delays.
If you’re trying a new airline, or you just don’t have enough “status” to make it big in the business airport lounge, this app can assist. LoungeBuddy lets you peer behind the desk showing photos and details of the facilities and, if they’re up to your standards, buy a pass at the door.
Google’s take on holiday planning is surprisingly autonomous. It finds itineraries sent to your Gmail address and adds trip details automatically, stores reservation information, and suggests activities and restaurants at your destination which you can save for later reference.
