Hopper is a great app for booking flights and hotels. This app claims to save up to 40% on every flight. Hopper predicts if the prices will increase or decrease based on previous data. You are able to watch flights in the app and will be notified when it will be the best time to buy.

I am sure everyone understands the frustration of getting stuck in traffic while on vacation. This can be especially irritating when you could have taken another route to get to your destination faster. Waze provides traffic information that is based on reports from other Waze users. This information includes hazards in the roads, accidents, blocked roads, weather conditions, and more. This app will also automatically reroute your trip when there are unforeseen circumstances. Additionally, Waze also provides you with the best time to begin your road trip, to avoid traffic and save time.
Expedia is my go-to for booking a trip. You can book flights, hotels, cruises, and even rent a car. This app even has a list of things to do in the area, while allowing you to purchase tickets for events. When you sign up to be a member, you get access to exclusive deals and earn rewards for each trip that is booked. We have saved hundreds of dollars by booking through Expedia, and you can too!
One of the best things you can do before traveling is to create a packing list. It is never a good feeling when you arrive at your destination and realize that you forgot an important item. PackPoint is an app designed to organize what you need to pack for your trip based on the weather of your destination, the length of your travel, and the activities you may have planned. Users can easily create a trip in the app, and PackPoint creates a customized packing list for you. This app also allows you to further customize your list and add personal items that may not have not been included. Furthermore, once you have packed the items needed for your trip you can check the items off, ensuring that you do not forget anything.
Airbnb allows users to search for accommodations across the word. Whether you are looking for a small cabin, or a luxury house, Airbnb has all of the best listings. Airbnb is available in about 200 countries and more than 100,000 cities, which shows how accessible the accommodations are for everyone. Airbnb is oftentimes more affordable than hotels, while also providing you with a more cozy stay.
TripIt allows users to organize all of the plans for an upcoming trip and put them in one itinerary. This app is great as it allows you to gather all of your trip details by either adding them manually or forwarding confirmation emails. Once all of the details have been added, you are able to transfer them into your calendar or forward them to anyone you choose. Once your itinerary has been created, TripIt will show airport maps, a neighborhood safety score for where you will be staying, and even has a navigator that shows how to get from one place to another.
