Because you might want to check out the weather of where you are going before you get there so you can pack appropriately, Yahoo Weather is a great app for that. It gives you 5 and 10 day forecasts, as well as telling you when the sun will rise and set. And so much more.
KAYAK Flights, Hotels & Cars
KAYAK is a great app for looking for the cheapest flights, hotels and cars. And for flights you can even see the price for the trip you’re looking to book over time. And Kayak will even tell you if prices will likely fall or rise in the next 7 days. Which is definitely a nice feature to have.
Make travel planning as mobile as you are with the Airbnb Android App! Airbnb opens the door to the world’s most interesting places to stay and is the simplest way to earn money from your extra space. With over 450,000 listings in more than 34,000 cities, Airbnb connects you with the experience that’s right for you. Message hosts and guests, gush over your itinerary, explore fairytale destinations, and add unforgettable digs to your Wish List. Make that penthouse, yurt, or treehouse your next home…or open up your own space to travelers.
Hotels.com – Hotel Reservation
Book your hotel right from your smartphone. If you forgot to book a hotel before you left, no need to worry. There will still be plenty of hotel rooms left and likely cheaper, because hotels want to be completely full, or else they don’t make money. Offering a room cheaper than normal brings in more profit than letting it sit empty tonight.
Uber is like your own private driver, and is available in most cities and countries. You can just open up the app on your phone, and call a driver. You can also use it to estimate how much a fare will be from one place to another. Which is definitely helpful.
Need a lift? Use Lyft to get an affordable ride in minutes. Instead of hailing a cab or waiting for the bus, just request a car with the tap of a button, and get picked up by a nearby friendly driver who’ll take you to your destination right away. Enjoy a welcoming, affordable, and memorable ride today.
Flying Delta Air Lines? Well then this app is a must have. It’ll allow you to view your flight information, show your boarding pass, and so much more. It also works with Android Wear, so you can scan your boarding pass from your watch. Which is actually really slick. You are also able to book flights, and reschedule flights (the app will even alert you if your flight has been delayed and ask you if you want to rebook).
United Airlines is proud to offer the all-new United app, with an Android-friendly design that is optimized for smartphones and compatible with tablets. Offering features from flight booking to flight status and more, the United app is your indispensable travel companion.
