My top 5 apps for saving time, money & stress whilst holiday planning

Hi everyone,

It’s absolutely no secret at all that I love a good holiday and weekend away. So in today’s post, I wanted to talk to you about some handy apps I have come to discover through my own research and through fellow bloggers’ reccomendations.

Whereas our parents used to walk into a high street travel agency, tell the lady at the desk where they wanted to go, and they were offered two to three options for their date. They then ordered the holiday and foreign currency and waited for the flight confirmation. Millennials, however, take full advantage of the technology, and compare prices and hotels themselves. 

  1. WorldMate

To organize your travel and make notes of different locations, offers, and places, you need to download WorldMate. If you are planning your own holiday and want to keep an eye on your itinerary, you can get organized. Book your hotels, tours, and flights, and check in on time. Set yourself reminders for flights and car rentals, as well as shuttle services, track your flights, and be notified by cancellations. Convert currencies, and compare hotel offers.

2. Skyscanner

Collecting information from most airlines, Skyscanner allows you to choose the right date and the cheapest flights. You can simply search for your destination and get the prices. Once your found your perfect flight, you can click on it and book it directly with the airline. Whether you are looking to travel to the USA or Asia, you can find all the deals in one place.

3. Voucher Site Apps

If you don’t yet have a destination in mind, you might want to look at discount vouchers and offers. Check out to save money on travel packages and hotel bookings in the UK and abroad. You will find offers on Spa packages, beach holidays, and even short breaks. Make sure you check out discount sites before you complete your holiday booking.

4. Airbnb

Most of us, modern travellers would like to soak in the atmosphere of the place we visit, instead of just signing up for a tour. If you would like to mix with the locals, you might choose to stay where they generally live. Book your accommodation through Airbnb, save money, and find out more about the lifestyle in the city you are visiting. Do your own shopping, explore the restaurants visited by people living there, and see more of the world.  

5. Foursquare

Every holiday booking should start with review sites, so you are not disappointed once you arrive. Foursquare gives you recommendations on where to eat and which places to visit, based on users’ reviews and ratings. You can look for nearby restaurants and bars, and filter the results based on the cuisine or the type of meal you are searching for.

There is something exciting about being able to arrange our custom holidays. The above online tools will help you stay safe and review the prices, ratings, and discount offers before you make up your mind. You will not only save money, but also find out more about your location through reviews published by fellow travellers.

Until next time honeys!
