That’s why we’ve put together a list of apps that can assist you with your travel plans. With a community of aspiring travelers, packing suggestions, jet lag assistance and last minute hotel deals at your side, these apps will turn upcoming spring or summer vacation goals and plans into a cinch.
Hipmunk sources the best deals on flights that you can book directly from the app as well as best hotel rates for the nights you’ve selected. It also alerts you if fares have gone down so that you may immediately book your trip and benefit from the rate reduction.
