Countless travel websites, booking sites, travel guides… Where do I even begin?
Check out these 10 travel apps that will make your life way easier when planning your next trip:
Expedia. Book your ideal travel itinerary with the Expedia app. Find flights and hotels easily, reserve a rental car with no cancellation fee, get tickets for tours, shows, museums as well as reserve airport shuttles and ground transportation. Once everything is booked, set up travel alerts and access trip details on-the-go. You can even receive alerts for flight delays, hotel check-out times and much more. Also available for Apple Watch and supports Apple’s Passbook feature.
Personally, I love to book my plane tickets and hotels using Expedia because this app offers discounted rates for those that also need to book accommodations. You can save up to 40% with mobile-exclusive hotel deals.
Kayak. This app also searches hundreds of travel sites and lets you book flights, hotel accommodations and reserve a rental car. It offers features similar to Expedia. Such as, manage trips, receive flight status alerts, price alerts etc. Also offered for Apple Watch.
The “Explore” feature is my favorite. This searches for the cheapest flights worldwide departing from your current location. You can explore and discover new travel destinations.
Tripadvisor. The world’s most popular travel app. Access millions of travelers reviews, remember your best travel moments, compare hotel prices and find the best deals to book hotels, flights, restaurants and attractions. Need we say more? Also offered for Apple Watch.

GetYourGuide. Another great app for booking tours and activities. Find amazing things to do nearby and book activities with only few taps! Verify your bookings easily using mobile vouchers. If you’re not ready to book, save the activities you liked to your wishlist.
