Tesa Nicolanti is an official Travelocity Gnational Gnomad offering sponsored tips and inspiration to fellow travel enthusiasts. The honest opinions are my own.
When I’m not traveling, I spend a lot of time researching the best in travel tips and technology. The apps in this list are all ones I look forward to using whenever I’m planning, packing, hopping on a plane, or loading up the car for a road trip. True to their word they do make traveling simpler and more enjoyable.
Travel Butler makes planning and packing for your trip a breeze. Simply download the app and type in your destination, the dates you will be there, and it creates a packing list for you based on the what the weather will be like while you are there. It also recommends trendy restaurants, cafes, and bars. A while back we took a family vacation to Seabrook Island, South Carolina. I would have loved to have this app then! I decided to type in the location and enter some random summer dates in June to see what it would tell me.
The app found the weather and immediately pulled up a packing list based on it. I love that it says “Short clothes for 8 hot days” – it makes me want to pack up and head there now! When you click the packing list, it is very detailed and you can adjust the number for each item or delete items all together.
Not only does it have a list for clothing but also: Documents, Electronics, Essentials, and Sports. It shows you recommended restaurants, bars, cafes, and sightseeing locations in the area as well.
This app is very helpful and one that will help keep you organized and make sure you don’t forget a thing.
When you are planning your trip, the Travelocity app is immensely helpful. You can view and book Hotels, Flights, Cars, and Activities.
With a just few taps of your finger you can enter your travel dates and find deals on hotels and resorts. I would love to plan a trip to Orlando for spring break, so I entered in some dates and up popped very affordable hotels with great ratings.
You can see their ratings right under the names, easily compare prices, see a thumbnail to get an idea of what it looks like, and see how much you can save as well. When you click each hotel you can find in-depth details, a map, and lots of photos. You can also book through the app or click a button to book by phone.
Looking for flights is just as easy. Type in your departure and destination airports, along with the dates you are traveling and available flights appear seconds later. The format makes it easy to look at lots of flights quickly. You can see what time they depart, when they arrive, if there is a layover and where, and compare prices. That’s a lot of information, but it’s presented in a visually pleasing way that’s easy to read.
Cars are just as simple to find, compare, and book. In a glance, you can see daily or weekly rates, vehicle sizes, and what the total will be for the trip. The other impressive feature about the Travelocity app is the activities. Doing a quick search of the Detroit area pulled up a fantastic aquarium, tours, sightseeing options, and more.
The Travelocity app is a must have when planning a trip or when daydreaming about one. You can quickly and easily see prices for any kind of trip and have everything booked in just a few minutes.
