According to a new poll conducted by the folks at MarketWatch, holiday travel during the 2016/2017 season is projected to be the busier than ever before. This new information projects that there will be approximately 2.3 million more drivers in the world and with flight travel up 2.6 percent, that means that 6 million more Americans will be flying than previous years.
Even if you have your tickets bought and your bags packed, this is still startling information. With that many people to navigate around, you might find that you need some extra help.
Fareoair to the rescue!
This holiday season, use technology to your advantage and try some of the newest travel applications on the market. These new apps can help you navigate the holiday crowds by doing everything from helping you skip the line for reservations to assist in relieving stress while you are at the airport.
Here are a few of our favorites:
If there were ever an app that could take care of all of your traveling and scheduling needs, it would be TripIt. You can have your trip in order with three simple steps: First, send all of your confirmation emails to the app. Second, let TripIt organize all of your details into one master itinerary. The final step includes logging in from any device, mobile or otherwise, to see your itinerary there waiting for you so you are never lost.
When you are traveling amongst 6 million Americans, you want to make sure that you beat the crowds to the best hotels, and you can do that with TripAdvisor. Ideal for picking the perfect hotel for your family, it offers hotel reviews by casual vacationers just like yourself. Using it, you can see what others have said about the hotels you plan to visit including everything from what food they serve to the cleanliness of the rooms.
If you are taking a holiday trip to a country that you have never visited before, then make sure that you have the Triposo app on your smartphone. When you go to a new place, this app will tell you all the fun and helpful stuff there is to do at that location. This includes the best attractions, museums, restaurants, supermarkets and more. This app is ideal during the holiday season because it prevents you from getting lost in the mob of tourists by leading you in the right direction to holiday fun.
While you are out in this new place, you might need a little help navigating the city, so give CityMapper a try. This incredible application can tell you the best ways to navigate the public transportation and give you the smartest walking directions of the area.
The exceptional busyness of the airport during the holiday season can be downright dizzying with men, women, and children of all ages rushing from one end of the terminal to the other. The good news is, there are places where you can find a little privacy, and those places are airport lounges.
The Lounge Buddy app helps you to get into these lounges by listing the price, availability and the amenities these lounges house. These areas are comfortable sanctuaries filled with warm chairs, great food, and alcoholic drinks to help take the edge off.
You can use any of these exceptional apps to get through the hustle and bustle of holiday travel, but before you head to the airport, book with Fareoair. We offer great deals on flights, hotels, cars and more, so contact us today and make this holiday one to remember.
