Summer is finally here!
When the summer is here you know that means vacation! There’s so many thing you can do this season. People can go to museums, amusement parks, and even travel to another state.
If you’re traveling to another state there will be flying. If you fly a lot, you know that there’s a lot that comes with flying like getting tickets, seats, hotels, and so on. There are also things you have to look out for such as delays or changes in flights.
Luckily for you technology is no further than in our pockets and there are plenty of apps available to make your life much easier. Plus, they’re all free! Some of the apps/websites include:
Hipmunk seems to be THE go to app to plan a trip because it’s fast and easy! It’ll help you find low-costing flights along with deals on hotels.
FlightAware is great because this app keeps you informed about all flights statuses, delays, cancellations, gate/terminal information, changes, etc.
SeatGuru eliminates any shocking surprises about your seat on the plane. You’ll find out if it’s broken, if the arm rest is gone, broken AC, and so on. This app has your back!
SeatAlert.com will let you know if any seat has opened up next to your seat before the flight. Hope for that window or aisle seat!
