Must Have 2017 Travel Apps


According to the latest data, by 2020, over two-thirds of individuals in first world countries will be carrying a smartphone device. This fact, combined with the ever-growing processing power of portable devices means that mobile app development is on the rise. Now, mobile apps are available for almost any conceivable subject. Here are our favorite travel apps every traveler must have in 2017:

  1. FlightAware. FlightAware is available for iOS and Android devices and offers travelers and travel arrangers alike one elegant platform to track flight status of any airline in real-time. Alerts and push notifications help travelers stay ahead of delays and cancellations, even including delays due to airport control.
  2. TripIt. Beyond flights, have TripIt access your e-reservations and instantly generate an elegant itinerary for you that includes your transportation, hotel, and car rental information, all in one convenient app. If this isn't appealing enough, this travel app wonder can also save expense information such as pictures of meal receipts and can be configured to automatically generate a mobile expense report for submission to your company.
  3. Yuggler. If you are traveling with children, let Yuggler be your guide. While currently only available on iOS platforms, this parent-saving app provides access to all children and family-friendly activities in an area based on your device positioning and simple filters such as your children's ages.
  4. Skype. While it isn't a new app, this video-conferencing and international calling standard has grown to include millions of users and sleek new features that make it essential for avoiding roaming fees when you are traveling abroad. Even within the United States, business travelers will find its ease-of-use convenient for teleconferencing back to the home office while out in the field.
  5. DealRay. DealRay isn't an app for in transit travelers, but rather a great tool for getting you into the sky. This subscription app tracks airline price drops, error fares, and flash sales and notifies the user based on their set criteria so that those amazing fares are never missed.
  6. Grab. For the ultimate in airport convenience, use Grab to order a much better meal than that which will be served on your flight and have it available for pickup at your gate as you board. Currently, only 17 airports are served (Dallas Fort Worth is their pioneer airport), but those numbers are expected to grow exponentially throughout 2017 and early 2018.

Of course, the reason using apps has become so popular is that they make travel and planning travel faster and more convenient than traditional methods of obtaining information.
