We have a list of 5 websites that will change the way you travel in 2017 and beyond.
Before you have even set off on your journey, you have the age old problem of packing. From deciding if you need a jumper to trying to work out how many pairs of shoes you should pack, PackPoint is the app that every traveller needs. PackPoint uses up to date weather analytics along with details such as trip duration and your planned activities, to make a packing list that is perfectly tailored for you. Not only that, it means there’s no excuse for forgetting anything, just remember to bring your Kip-Kit.
When looking for flights or somewhere to stay, you want to make sure you get the best deal. Skiplagged is a site that allows you to find hidden deals and loopholes on air fares, to get you the most for your money. Their unique algorithm allows you to find the best deal by splitting a journey or booking a cheaper rate hotel through their site. They also have a handy app to enable you to find your low rate journey on the go.
You don’t need to be a high flyer to take advantage of LoungeBuddy. LoungeBuddy is an app that allows you access to any airport lounge without the need for memberships or first class tickets. The app allows you to log in and find a lounge that meets your requirements and budget to let you relax before you jet off. Within a few clicks you can find yourself a lounge that has designated Wi-Fi or a place to plan the next part of your journey. If it’s rest that you’re looking for, make sure that you bring your Kip-Kit with you to get the most out of your pre-travel naps!
If you’re looking for places to visit that won’t be in the guide books then try Atlas Obscura, a site dedicated to finding you the hidden gems in each city you may visit.
