Summer is the perfect time for vacations and travel. In order to make sure everything goes planned, careful planning is essential. Where to look for airline tickets and accommodation offers? How not to get lost in an unfamiliar town?
Here is a list of the most essential apps to make any trip safe and enjoyable, recommends Samsung Electronics products expert Janis Lejnieks:
It is possible to find the best and cheapest flights provided by more than 100 airlines, including airBaltic, Ryanair and Wizz Air, on Skyscanner website. It is also possible to look up connecting flights. It is also possible to book accommodation and register car rent in the required area.
This website will be useful to people who more often than not end up planning their vacation at the very last moment. HolidayPirates offers users the ability to book full-service travel arrangements, hotel rooms and other tourism services for affordable prices. It is worth keeping in mind that this app offers departures only in the largest European airports.
This app will serve as a trustworthy pocket guide for the most popular tourist sites. It will be especially helpful to people who do not plan their travel and just give in to the moment’s wonders. After visiting recommended locations, users can leave feedback to help other tourists. TripAdvisor can be helpful as well: this app provides feedback about different hotels.
If something unexpected happens in you travel plans, Hotel Tonight app will help you find a room to spend the night in. Travellers can also use booking.com or laterooms.com for this purpose. Those who prefer living in private apartments can safely consider using Airbnb app. It provides accommodation offers posted by local people.
What is an adventure without colourful photos and marvellous moments? Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge 5 MP front and 16 MP back cameras provide users the ability to take breathtaking shots of landscapes. The Camera360 Ultimate app provides 200 different filtres, and editing tool, the ability to share your photos with your friends and the ability to save your photos in the cloud.
This free app is a perfect alternative to Waze, because it provides the ability to look up maps of more than 100 countries online and offline. It is very important to follow internet consumption during travel. This is why the offline mode will make it easier to look up maps without worrying about internet availability somewhere up in the mountains. This app also provides navigation when travelling on foot or by public transport. Other noteworthy navigation apps include Sygic, TomTom and Maps.me.
What is travelling when there is no music? Deezer is a perfect choice for long travel and long flights. Owners of Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 and Alpha have an advantage – the first three months of use are free of charge.
Taxi queues, lack of knowledge of locations and addresses, cash – these and other reasons can become an obstacle on your way to wherever you need to go. Uber is a popular company in the world – it offers taxi services provided by registered drivers in selected areas. The app also provides access to internet banking services. This allows users to make payments without worrying about cash. In Europe, there is also Taxify app.
