As a result of smartphones and apps, traveling has never been easier or more exciting! We like to keep our clients up to date on the latest and greatest travel apps so that your upcoming adventure is as smooth and fun-filled as possible! That’s why we keep scouring the internet for new and innovative apps! We’ve found 5 new travel apps that we think you’ll find useful and kind of cool!
No, this is not a Lynyrd Skynyrd app! Actually, this is technically not an app at all, but a service that you can subscribe to via your mobile phone that “empowers business travelers to skip the line and instantly book a new ticket after a flight cancellation, significant delay, or missed connection.” This is definitely a service that you’ll want to have for peace of mind! This service is free and works for any airline.
Let’s keep the cows happy! This app lists vegan and vegetarian restaurants in approximately 10,500 cities worldwide. For those of us who want to travel “meatless,” this is definitely an app for you, as it can be challenging to find vegan and vegetarian establishments whilst traveling. This will allow you to confidently trek around the globe and not have to worry about tipping any sacred cows!
There are few things more tedious and unpleasant than a long layover! Airport purgatory! This app is a lifesaver for those facing such travel torture! You can use this app to book a hotel room for a few hours to grab a shower, take a nap, or just freshen up after a long flight! Dayuse provides rooms for up to 75% off regular nightly rates at approximately three thousand hotels worldwide! Not too shabby!
If you don’t actually have cool hipster family members, then this is the app for you! Cool Cousin offers unique, off-the-beaten-path recommendations by locals in cities like Paris and London. It allows you to experience hip, cool spots that tourists may not know of. This app is great for those travellers who want to avoid the mainstream tourist spots and experience a more authentic side of the location they are visiting!
For those who are traveling alone or to more unstable areas of the world, this app could literally be a lifesaver! Geosure is a location-sensitive personal security app that will provide a safety score that reflects health risks, political uprisings, and environmental threats and also gives crowd-sourced information about thefts and assaults that have occurred in the area. This app will allow traveling increased peace of mind!
