42 Must-Have Travel Apps
18 apps to help you plan your next big trip.
Kayak Pro ($0.99) There's no shortage of travel-booking apps, but Kayak has risen through the ranks, thanks to its reputation for finding the best deals on plane tickets, hotels, and car rentals—it even alerts you to price drops! Not only can you manage your itineraries and track your flights directly within the app, but you can also change currencies, sync packing lists across devices with iCloud, and turn on Autofill to spare you from reentering information. If your heart isn't set on a particular destination, the Explore tab is great for finding the perfect vacations for a steal. With Kayak Pro, you'll also gain access to terminal maps from over 350 airports and the new “Hotel for Tonight” feature, which connects you with nearby digs.
For Planning Expedia (Free) This app's image-rich interface helps you dream of your destination as you search for flight and hotel deals. The app sets itself apart with mobile rewards and hotel reviews from guests only.
Travelocity (Free) Perhaps the coolest thing about Travelocity is its low-price guarantee—if you stumble upon a cheaper flight or hotel within 24 hours of booking on Travelocity, the company will pay you the difference.
Hopper (Free) Hopper not only searches for the best travel deals, but it also tells you the best times to book your flights and the cheapest days to travel.
