Technology has become the backbone to all businesses so it is no surprise that technology is continuing to advance when it comes to travel.
While it can be hard to let go of your business to enjoy your well deserved time off, ultimately your business can be better for it as you return less stressed and more efficient.
In preparation for your next trip whether it is for leisure or business make sure you take advantage of the many tech-savvy applications available to help you be as organised as possible for your trip.
Whether you need an app to help you plan, give you key tips or a space to write about your holiday there is one for everyone with quality apps both in free and paid versions.
However, be wary when travelling overseas about the use of any travel apps (or anything else for that matter) and your mobile data. Some travellers will experience bill shock from expensive telephone bills due to data charges overseas so just make sure you are wary, consider a business telephone plan (if you don’t have one already) or purchase a prepaid sim card such as a Travel Sim.
Handy travel apps to download include:
Kamino (Free): If you are travelling on leisure or having a spare few days on your business trip this app is great for people wanting to see areas popular or only known by locals. Basically Kamino is a database of walking tours all over the world that are created by local people from each area. Each tour gives you the approximate distance, how many stops you have and often photos of some highlights you will see.
Entrain (Free): Entrain is perfect for those that suffer from jet lag when travelling. It ‘trains’ your body to get used to the different time zone of your destination before you even leave! This makes it less of an adjustment when it is time to change time zones and reduces jet lag and associated fatigue. Perfect for your next quick business trip!
Tripit (With Free or Pro Versions $61.99): Having many different travel documents can make it hard when your away, Tripit aims to take this burden away by storing all your important information in one place. By forwarding all your travel confirmation emails to the Tripit team they will create an itemised plan of your holiday so you won’t forget where you are off to next or plane departure times!
Remember being organised and in control will make your holiday smooth sailing and this is what these apps are developed to achieve.
