Summer is surely the best season of the year to get out of our households and frolic somewhere else. But, don’t get too excited just yet. While traveling can be such a hassle, booking your travel can be a more pain in the neck – not to mention, pain in the wallet. Don’t let this worry you, though. There are 5 apps you can just download in your smartphones that will help you save money when booking for your trip… big time!
Want to get great deals on your flights? You might want to download Expedia for that. This mobile app will surely make your trip-planning easier as it finds you special deals in which you can save money – may it be on airfare, a car rental, or in booking your hotel rooms. With its recent updates, this app all the more wows its users with its user-friendly interface and lots of photos to help you get through.
Did you ever wish you could hire a personal travel agent to help you through your flights? You may not be able to do so, but you can always download one: the SkyScanner. It works by scanning flights from more than a thousand airlines. After a few seconds, it will show you a list of the cheapest airfare options available for you. What’s more is that you can directly book a flight on your smartphone.
You may be irked about those last-minute bookings where you get the most expensive room just because all the cheaper rooms are already booked. Well, give Hotel Tonight a try. This money-saving app could definitely help you with your goal to save on those hotel bookings! It does not only favor those participating hotels as it helps them gain more customers, it also saves travelers up to 70% off the standard rate. If you’re trip is as spontaneous as you, save on your lodging expenses by using this app.
If you want other options of places to stay during your summer travel, try AirBnB. It does not only give you a wide array of up to 200,000 listings of apartments, summer houses, and private island resorts, the app also ensures that these places are indeed cost-friendly. Another feature is that you can also use this app to rent out a property of yours for the summer to gain more money for your next trip.
Planning to get around the place with a car? You can definitely save on car rental if you do so from a private owner, instead of an agency. The GetAround app can help you with that as it provides you with options from private parties, including the hourly and daily rates. Furthermore, these rentals offer a full insurance coverage and could give you roadside assistance anytime. Not only will it save you money, it will also save you the effort of having to settle the paperwork since you can always book directly through your iPhone.
It never hurts having to use some help in booking your summer trip. It’s even better to prepare for it ahead of time and prepare for it smoothly by making use of these money-saving apps.
