Going on holiday? Must have apps
When going on holiday most of us have a checklist of things to pack in case we forget vital items like swimwear, medication and sun cream but this you’ll want to add app shopping to your list. You’ll find a range of different apps that are great for all of your travelling needs, whether you’re taking the bus to the next town or going half way across the world. Take a look at these top picks: 1. Hipmunk- The first port of call for any kind of travelling is deciding how you’re going to get there. When you’re looking for the cheapest flights and hotels, Hipmunk can help out. This app not only provides you with the cheapest deals but looks for the flights that get you to your destination as quickly as possible e.g. without any layovers or flight changes. 2. TripIt- Sometimes holidays can be a lot to organise and the unorganised among may spend half hour at each gate or reception desk trying to find the paperwork we’re looking for. With tickets, schedules, visas and much more, it can all become a little overwhelming. TripIt can organise your booking confirmations and itinerary so you have all the details you need in one place. If you have a little free time, TripIt can also recommend sights and attractions for your get away. 3. Packpoint- Remember that checklist we were talking about? Well, Packpoint can do that for you. It will ask you a few simple questions like, what gender are you? Where is your holiday destination? And, how long will you be staying? Once you’ve answered these it will come up with a list of essentials that you need to pack for your trip. What more could you ask for? 4. Tipulator- Have you ever wondered how much you should tip your waiter after a meal? In some countries a tip is essential to survival, while in others it is deemed offensive. If you’re planning on visiting a few countries that you’ve never been to before, Tipulator is for you. It will help you to calculate what percentage you should tip and give you the exact amount to pay. There are some fantastic apps on the market at the moment and when you’re travelling they make life much more convenient. Have a think about what you need help with while travelling and you’re bound to find an app to suit!
