Getting everything ready for your holidays can be challenging, so for a stress-free journey, we’ve gathered a bunch of neat apps for your to download on your smartphones and help make your travel planning a whole lot easier.
No more frantic searching for confirmation emails in your inbox. Tripit automatically connects to your email accounts, finds travel-confirmation emails, and turns them into a neat, complete itineraries. It comes with several other features and most notably, you can share your trip itineraries with your family so they know where you are or where you will be.
Not only does this app help you save some time, but it also gives you ideas (Why didn’t I think about packing that?) It provides sample packing lists to get you started and you can customize them and even make lists within lists (oooh!). If you’re packing for several people (like a large family trip), it allows you to create a master family packing list that can then be sorted by each member — hubby, wife, son, daughter. Taking grandma, too? You can add anyone using any name (Grams, Oma, Nonna) by selecting a “new person” tab. Brilliant!
