TripCase

If planning isn’t your thing, check out TripCase. The mobile app that creates custom itineraries for your next vacation. Just forward your travel confirmation emails to the app and the next time you log in, you will have a full itinerary including flights, accommodations, rental cars, restaurant reservations, and more.

GasBuddy

Gearing up for a road trip? Be sure to download GasBuddy, the mobile app that allows you to find gas by location and price in real-time. You can save money on the road by knowing where the cheapest options are located. The app is available in the US, Canada, and Australia.

Hopper

Hopper will track flight prices for you and send notifications about when is the best time to buy your next flight. Not only will it tell you to buy now or wait, but it will also let you know when the cost of your ticket is expected to go up.


Hotel Tonight

Often, last-minute booking means huge price increases, but Hotel Tonight specializes in same-day hotel reservations. You can book in advance, but the app offers huge discounts when you book your hotel for the same day.

Lounge Buddy

If you’ve ever been jealous of those travelers who get to relax in what looks like exclusive, luxury lounges in the airport, then you should check out Lounge Buddy. This app finds lounges in airports that let anyone in for free. The app will also let you know what amenities are featured in each lounge from food and drinks to showers and mini spas.
