In this day and age of smartphones and internet, going to a travel agent is, (let’s just put it this way) too old fashioned. We are today enclosed in a pool of apps doing a fantabulous job in planning your vacation, that you can single-handedly plan your trip of the year. To make things easy for you, we have today rounded off a total of 9 travel apps which will assist you in your next breezy break with just a few clicks.

1. Sky Scanner

Whether you are looking for a flight, rental cars or hotels, Skyscanner covers all. The app searches for the affordable and best options via its travel partners. Just like Google flights you can look for the cheapest dates to fly in the month and even get a reminder once the prices change.

2. Airbnb

We all know that Airbnb is a household name when it comes to offering dwelling spaces to the locals as well as tourists. The Airbnb app provides the customer with cheaper priced hotel options and a more authentic experience by staying with a local in their home. The app has recently updated by offering the users to choose the experience during their stay which includes local travel with a guide, booking the activities for the day, etc.

3. Citymapper

Citymapper is one of the best apps to find and use public transportation. The app connects you to the ride-sharing services and suggests you the fastest way to arrive at the destination. You can also check the time for subway and trains offline for a number of cities. The app is really handy if you are travelling for the first time to a new country.

4. Pack point

Pack point prepares a checklist of all the items you will require for the trip depending on the weather forecast for the dates and location of your trip. Along with preparing a checklist, the app also asks you to list the activities you would like to participate during the trip and based on these activities prepare another list of items you would need. If you have a bunch of forgetful friends in your gang, you can even share the lists with them.

5. Mobile Passport

Mobile passport is officially authorized by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and it lets you skip the regular line to enter the country. You just need to download this app and add your passport information and you can do this quickly by scanning it with your phone’s camera. Mobile Passport is accepted at 20 airports in the U.S.

6. TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor is a cover all and catch-all app that lets you peruse over millions of reviews, opinions, videos and photos pertaining to just about anything related to your trip — bars, restaurants, hotels, airlines, and more.
