With the help of smartphones, booking a spring break trip just got easier for travelers. From searching for the best flight and hotel deals, to finding activities to pursue outside of your hotel that can involve the entire group, there are several mobile apps that help make planning a vacation simple, organized and efficient.
Here are five “must have” mobile apps that can help you plan for a memorable spring break getaway.
When deciding on the perfect destination, let CheapOair’s app find the best flight and hotel deals and even last-minute vacation packages (perfect when traveling with a large group.) With the app’s new 24/7 Live Chat option, there’s no need to worry about flight delays or lost hotel reservations because a helping hand is always available to sort out any complications.
No more frantic searching through emails on your phone for airline and hotel confirmations. With the TripIt mobile app, users now have an easier way to organize and share travel plans. TripIt takes all of your trip details and creates one helpful itinerary at the palm of your hands. Once you receive a confirmation email from anywhere you book, simply forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org, where the app instantly recognizes reservations from over 3,000 booking sites and organizes into one site.
GetPacked: packing list
Once you’ve booked the travel plans for your destination, the last and final step before you leave is packing your luggage and making sure not to leave any essentials at home. The GetPacked: packing list mobile app helps make packing quick and easy. With the checklist, you can choose from over 600 items to put on your list, with the ability to even add your own items.
While on vacation, it’s important to spend quality time outside of the hotel room. The Goby mobile app allows you to explore your surroundings by finding local sightseeing tours, festivals and more, to keep everyone occupied during the trip.
When you’re in an unfamiliar city and are looking for a nice restaurant that everyone can enjoy, the LocalEats app allows you to search through recommended restaurants that have been reviewed by local food critics near you.
