Planning any vacation can be overwhelming. Tourist plan months in advance for the ideal family vacation or romantic getaway, but occasionally you may hit a snag while traveling. Weather conditions, sudden detours and other factors can create a temporary delay in your scheduled itinerary. A travel mobile app as a fantastic resource for any prospective tourist. I think of a mobile travel app similar to an interactive travel guide. Although printed travel guides are a must, a mobile travel app is gears towards travelers who are looking to explore new areas that interest them at first sight, someone who wants to travel on the whim and let their eyes be their tour guide or those who find themselves at the mercy of inclement weather.
How does a good travel app work for you?
Instead of planning every minute of every day while on vacation, you can travel through your own eyes. If you are traveling to New Orleans naturally you will want to visit our beautiful landmarks, but what if you wanted to travel the unbeaten path? An entire new travel experience can be at the palm of your hands with the help of a mobile map. In addition, itinerary plans can change at a moments notice. Perhaps you are traveling with your family, after a long day with the kids you may want to enjoy a quite dinner with your spouse. A resort mobile app can let you know details to their children’s fun zone and the details & cost of the resorts onsite sitter service. Looking for info on nightlife? You can find local outdoor concert information, scheduled festivals and more on a decent mobile travel app.
You can also download other travel related applications like TripAdvisor or Zagat for recommendations on last minute hotels, restaurants and attraction. Don’t forget about other travel related apps like FlightTrack Pro, Skype and even Pocket First Aid & CPR from the American Heart Association that can make traveling a little less overwhelming.
Mobile travel apps can be provided by a hotel/resort, visitor bureau, tourism board or other providers. Most mobile travel apps are free of charge & are available for Android and IPhone users. I like to download a Travel Mobile App prior to leaving. It’s a great time killer when driving to your destination and you won’t have to struggle with hotel WiFi to download.
Have you ever used a mobile travel app when planning or while traveling?
