It takes much more than just daydreaming, if you actually want to get to your dream destination or that much-needed break. Zeroing in on the best time to visit, the best airfare, and the best places to stay along with the best things to do can be a tad gruesome in a bid to want the best out of your vacation. The good part- with the booming travel industry there is a plethora of websites and apps out there that will do all the work for you. All you have got to do is command these genies to “plan my holiday”! Here is a low down on five apps to plan one perfect trip you will thank us for.
Skyscanner: Assisting you with the best of flights at the cheapest of rates, Skyscanner is your answer to efficient travel planning. This app, makes your first step to getting to your destination easy-peasy, minus any confusion. While flights (both international and domestic) are the primary focus of this app, you can also check out accommodation and car rentals on it. It automatically pairs your flight and car rentals, so as to not search for the two separately.
Airbnb: Bringing about a revolution of a sort in the hospitality industry, Airbnb is the current big thing! The app offers you anything from a crash pad to a villa. You can choose from options where you will be hosted by the owners of the place or have the whole place to yourself. This one’s perfect for all those who like authentic, local experiences where you can actually stay with your local hosts, if you wish to.
TripHobo: This one’s certainly a head-turner, spelling convenience like no other. I mean, picture entering just your location to have everything from flights, accommodation, some amazing tours of the best things to do at that place, to even being suggested ideal local transports to that place! The ultimate vacation planner, to say the least. Apart from this, there is a plethora of experiences you can undertake, comprising food, shopping, nightlife and the likes.
AccuWeather: Foreign places can leave you a little baffled about the best time to get outside. For instance, in places that have uncertain weather like London, an app like AccuWeather can be a boon! This weather will give you an estimated forecast and the best time to head out. What’s more? You can choose the best suitable language from a database of a whopping hundred languages!
Packing Pro: And now, on to the final step of actually getting on your trip- packing! As exciting as a trip maybe, packing certainly is one bummer. Wish you had a ready-made checklist of things to pack? The Packing Pro can come to your rescue. This app offers an ideal packing guide once you enter the number of days you are traveling, the destination you are traveling to and the forecast weather. Additionally, it will also notify you to check your passport’s expiry date and even get necessary vaccinations!
