If the heat of haggling with foreign money overwhelms you, tip the odds in your favor with Oanda. The app gives instant conversion rates for 190 currencies. Even if you don’t receive a cell-phone signal abroad, you can still keep tabs on currency fluxes each time you log onto your hotel’s Wi-Fi — and that refresher can make the difference between knowing when to walk away and when you’re about to score big.
Most of us don’t make packing lists, and most of us end up forgetting something, like lip balm for a ski trip or the right shoes for a celebration dinner. PackPoint solves the packing dilemma by asking where you’re headed and the nature of your trip, i.e. based on work, a sport, family, etc. It factors in weather, and calculates how much of something, like socks, you’ll need based on trip duration.
Few things trigger travel panic faster than having a cab driver near the airport and ask which airline — and you can’t remember. Nor can you find a ticket or printout. With TripIt, short for Trip Itinerary, those frantic inbox searches are gone. The mobile travel organizer simplifies your travel planning by managing your plans in one convenient spot. Owners can authorize the app to track upcoming villa stays, import them to a calendar and share with coworkers, family and friends via email or text. Upgrade to TripIt Pro for a fee and receive flight delay alerts well ahead of when airlines announce them, so you’ll rebook ahead of the herd.
