SOME­TIMES, IT’S HARD TO KNOW WHERE YOU WANT TO STAY WITHOUT KNOW­ING EX­ACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO DO FIRST...

TO-DO LIST

Some­times, it’s hard to know where you want to stay without know­ing ex­actly what you want to do first. Apps like TripAd­vi­sor and Airbnb have their own cu­rated to-do lists and pop­u­lar ex­pe­ri­ence sec­tions that’ll help you get a feel for where all the ac­tion is — help­ing you choose where you’d like to stay, or al­ter­na­tively where you’d like to keep away from...

RESTAU­RANTS

In much the same way as prox­im­ity to ac­tiv­i­ties will af­fect where you stay, ev­ery­one’s gotta eat and hav­ing the best restau­rants nearby is a crit­i­cal fac­tor. Airbnb and TripAd­vi­sor are again the best apps for work­ing out if there are good restau­rants near where you want to stay, but book­ing.com also has a travel ar­ti­cle sec­tion where you might get lucky.

TIME

While most of the apps here will let you book for any point in the fu­ture, apps like Hotels Tonight work by of­fer­ing great deals if you’re will­ing to risk hold­ing off book­ing un­til just a few days be­fore.

BUD­GET

Dif­fer­ent apps tend to spe­cialise in dif­fer­ent styles of ac­com­mo­da­tion, many of which will be un­suit­able to what you’re look­ing for. Find­ing the app that most suits your bud­get and pref­er­ences will save a lot of time search­ing.

TRANS­LA­TION

While it’s sim­ple enough to down­load a stand­alone trans­la­tion app, it’s nice to be able to trans­late a cou­ple of things quickly us­ing the same app you used to book your ac­com­mo­da­tion, if you need to.
