chicago limoOn your next trip, you can benefit from a number of free travel apps. Designed specifically for travelers, these mobile applications will make both pleasure and business travel easier and more enjoyable. Here are this week’s travel tips on the best of the best travel apps!

Top Mobile Applications

  1. Hopper – This mobile app predicts the best time for getting a great deal on flights, something possible by analyzing billions of daily airfares. With this information, the app chooses brief periods of time when prices dip below the historic average. If you are flexible, the Watch a Flight feature can save you a lot of money.
  1. TripAdvisor – Millions of people enjoy this free travel app. The app ranks hotels, restaurants, points of interest, and bars. Instead of making phone calls or searching through pages of information, you get an accurate rating within seconds.
  1. Localeur – To get off the beaten path, this free travel app is perfect. Using advice from locals, you gain access to unique and even bizarre places to visit.
  1. Airbnb – To find the best sleeping accommodations, this app is ideal. With over 1 million listings for hotels, apartments, private homes, vans, yachts, watchtowers, and even castles, you will have no problem finding the right accommodations.
  1. Postagram – Rather than buy and send a postcard from the places you visit, you can use this travel app to capture a special place and provide the recipient with a personal greeting. Although there is a $0.99 fee, we felt the app is worth including in our list.
  1. Google Translate – Especially when traveling overseas, you need an accurate and reliable language translator. Among all the free applications for this purpose, Google Translate works best.
  1. TripIt – With this app, you can confirm emails for hotel accommodations, rental car bookings, flights, and more. Instead of receiving multiple confirmations, the app converts emails into one travel itinerary that is easy to manage.
  1. Skype –Skype provides a platform for face-to-face conversations in real-time. Skype works great for business meetings, as well as checking in with family and friends at home.
  1. Gas Buddy – With this app, you know where all the cheapest gas stations are in any given area. In addition, you redeem collected points for prizes.
  1. Pin Park – With this, you never worry about where you parked. By using this free travel app, you can take a photo of your parked vehicle, add notes, and use either satellite or a Google map to identify the exact parking space.

Limousine Services

These free travel apps make your experience away from home better. Another way to enhance the travel experience is to leave all the driving to a professional chauffeur. By hiring a limousine company, everything is less stressful.
