Best Last-Minute Travel Apps For Android
What are the makings of the best vacation? Apart from the evasive financial freedom, we would say planning holds a strong second. Of course, there is something to be said for the spontaneous and self-discovering journeys, like the one featured in “The Hangover” series. However, for the most part, having a vacation plan ensures you avoid trouble, spend less and bring back only the positive memories.
But things do not always go according to plan. And when it doesn’t – there is no need for panic. All that you do need is to plan for the “no-plan scenario”. Here are a few helpful tool that can get you out of hot water in any part of the world.
For most of us, choosing a hotel is one of the major vacation decisions and we do take it quite seriously. That’s why it’s so disappointing to arrive at the place of your destination and learn that there has been a problem with the booking. Being stranded in an exotic country in the middle of the night and after a long flight is not the best setup. Hotel Tonight helps you get over this problem by giving you access to all the places in the areas where you can stay ASAP. More than that, you may even come out a winner in the whole ordeal – as the app will round up a list of the best last-minute deals and discounts.
Surely, having a selection of places you want to see and the things you want to do before arriving at the vacation spot is a good idea. But if you haven’t had the time to make plans for this trip – make sure you have Poynt on your smartphone. The app gives you answers to the ever-so-popular travel question “where’s the nearest…?”. So whether it is an exhibition, a party, a cook-off or a sporting event you have your thoughts on – Poynt will find it for you and tell you how to get there. Even if you do have a plan in mind, having the app is quite useful, as you will get updates on the events taking place at the moment, like festivals and celebrations.
