There's a lot to consider when embarking on a trip, from making your first booking to when exploring your chosen destination. Decisions need to be made, unfamiliar roads need to be navigated, tickets need to be secured. You might expect language snafus if you're traveling to more far-flung locales too.
Fortunately, whatever your concern, there's an app for that, and we've rounded up five of the best for the sophisticated traveller. Whether you're after offline resources that won't burn through your data, or hunting for exclusive deals and experiences, these apps should have you covered.
While some aspects of trip planning might be fun, browsing through dozens of flight and hotel booking websites to snag the best deal is always a bit of a slog. Why not give Hopper a shot instead? The award-winning app employs data science that purports to predict price changes at 95% accuracy up to a year in advance. Here's how it works: browse through flight itineraries or hotel rooms for the travel destination of your choice, ‘watch’ options that you're interested in, then get notified by the app as soon as the price drops and book directly from the app. The cherry on top? Hopper is clean and beautifully designed, completely devoid of ads and pop-ups.
