Take a good look at the calendar. Yes, it's May already! And before you know it, the heatwaves will have arrived, and you'll quickly realize that summer is here and you still don't have any vacations planned. Luckily, we're here to remind you! There are a bunch of great apps out there, ready and waiting to be used to plan your next trip. There is something for everyone; whether you're traveling as a family, looking for a mini-break with your other half, or even going camping with all your buddies.
The apps we've got for you today are gonna help you find hotels and flights at the best prices, find campsites in Europe, and if you're more of a city-break lover, we've also got an app to help you rent a car, the hassle-free way.
So, come on, let's get planning that next vacation of yours: check out these great apps!
There' one teeny thing you need to work out before you can go gallivanting around the world: where are you going? And that's where TravelZoo comes in. You'll find a whole host of weekend offers and round-the-world trips, with prices that you won't find through other means or travel agents. You can also get tickets for events in your city and away, to keep you entertained at a great price.
Kayak is a great app for comparing travel offers, which will make your trip much easier to organize. Aside from the website, Android users have got a great app that gives them access to hotels with rooms available tonight (great for when you find yourself in a city with nowhere to sleep). It also gives you the chance to find flights, hire cars, and other holiday essentials. You can also use the travel schedule and track flights.
This app is a must-have, whether you travel frequently or not.
So, you think you've done a great job at packing. Toothbrush? Check. Phone charger? Check. But, we've all managed to leave things at home at some time or another. Packpoint is an app which will help make your packing fool-proof (and forgetful-proof). You simply select the activities you plan to do in your destination, and it'll give you a suggested list of things you need to take. You won't know how you ever packed without it.
If you've decided to go back to basics on your holiday this year, this is your app. ACSI Campsites Europe is a great tool that has a collection of over 8,500 campsites around Europe, listed and reviewed annually. You can search for campsites on the map, by location, or search in the lists. Each campsite has a ranking, it's distance from you, contact details and reviews from other campers.
If you're planning to travel abroad, or plan to go by public transport, you may well need a car once you're at your destination (particularly if you're staying out in the sticks). Car Rentals Market is an app which helps you find the best car rental agencies. You can choose the destination, from any city or airport, and get a complete list of companies along with estimated prices, with an option to contact the agencies directly through the app.
