Best Travel Apps for Business Travelers
Arranging your travel destination, flights, itinerary, accommodations, and dining plans can be intimidating even for experienced travelers. Thankfully, we live in the modern era of travel apps that can help make planning your next business trip far less complicated. Below are some well-rated apps that we recommend all business travelers use for their next adventure!
● Google Trips: all you need to register for this application is a Gmail account. You can easily make reservations or search for tourism activities to partake in during your stay.
● Guides by Lonely Planet: Lonely Planet guides are a fantastic and reliable way to plan a trip to a new city. Guides for each city can be downloaded and accessed from your phone. These guides contain great suggestions for sightseeing and local hotspots.
● Flight Stats: with this application you can enter your flight number to receive instant updates about terminals, gates, and delays.
● Dealray: this airfare tracker finds low-cost flight deals and sends notifications when it detects significant price drops, error fares, or flash sales. This app costs $9.99 per month.
● Skiplagged: allows you to find “hidden city” one-way tickets with a stopover where you get off the plane instead of continuing to the next ticket (which is often cheaper than nonstop fare).
● Grab: if you are short on time, Grab allows you to look at airport restaurant menus ahead of time, map them in the terminal, and, in some locations, order in advance and pick up your food on your way to the gate.
● Happy Cow: lists vegan and vegetarian restaurants in nearly 10,500 cities worldwide. Each restaurant listing contains a short menu description and visitor reviews.
● Velocity: if you want to visit the most popular restaurants in your destination, this is the app for you!
● HotelTonight: is a mobile travel app for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows devices that allows users to find discounted hotel accommodations up to seven days in advance throughout North and South America, Europe and Australia. Due to the last minute nature of the bookings, the app can offer deep discounts off the listed hotel rate.
● Groupon: offers vacation packages and travel deals. Keep a keen eye out for deeply discounted Groupon Getaway deals for Ayres Hotels and Allegretto Vineyard Resort by Ayres!
This list, of course, only contains a small fraction of all the useful travel apps out there. No matter what your need, you are guaranteed to find an app that will help make planning your next trip much easier. Furthermore, we would also like to mention our very own Ayres Hotels App. Our app, which is now available on the Apple Store and Google Play, not only makes booking your stay at an Ayres Hotel more convenient, but it also allows you to register or login to your Ayres Rewards account to earn rewards point that you can later redeem for free nights at any of our gorgeous hotels.
