From planning to touch down, having the right apps on hand can help ease the stress of travel. According to pcmag.com, here are the best travel apps for 2019.
This app may be a game changer for the outdoor enthusiasts. You can quickly find the best trails for hiking and walking nearby with pictures, maps, and directions right at your fingertips. You can download the pro version for $29.99 per year which allows you to download trail maps while offline.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
If you find yourself having to cancel a trip last minute and are stuck with the cost of your prepaid hotel room, then download the Roomer Travel app. This app and website will help you sell your reservation to another traveler who needs it, often at a discounted rate. On the flip side, you can also use the app to find discounted hotel rooms from travelers who had to cancel last minute.
