When traveling on business, it’s all about the budget and what your employer has allotted for your flights, accommodation, dining and ground transportation. The TravelBank app is specifically designed to keep a track of your expenses and allow you to focus on your comfort priorities. It bundles budgets together, giving you an overall picture of what you can spend. Maybe you’ll fly coach instead of business class so you can splurge on nicer restaurants, or take public transport over cabs to score yourself a better hotel. At the end of your trip you can file an expense report through the app. When you have international travel expenses, the multi-currency feature automatically converts 150 currencies to USD.
The benefits of sleep cannot be overstated, which is why anyone with long layovers between flights should be trying to get some shut-eye when possible. The Dayuse app pinpoints hotel properties that allow you to book a day rate, so you can get some sleep or just relax in privacy. For example, anyone who flies through Miami Airport frequently will probably be aware of the fact that the Miami Airport Hotel on Concourse E offers day rates from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. You can’t put a price on that kind of comfort. Rooms booked through Dayuse are usually cheaper than the overnight rate, but you get the same amenities. There is no down side.
Whether we like to admit it or not, restrooms are a big part of our lives and not everyone is keen on just finding a bush in the wild when on vacation. SitOrSquat is a restroom-finding app that is loaded with more than 100,000 public facilities and can pinpoint the nearest to your location. Users can rate toilets (yes, believe it or not) and add new ones to the database. In the U.S., public restrooms tend to be free, but in Europe you could be forking out a bit of money to use them. This app will tell you what to expect, including whether or not you’ll have to buy a cup of coffee to gain access.
Not everyone cares about staying fit when they are traveling, but for those who insist in getting in a run or walk each day, the RunGo app is a useful tool. It allows you to find suitable and safe running routes in the vicinity, with voice navigation to help you get through tricky spots (whatever that means). You can use the app when offline by downloading a route in advance, saving you from those hefty roaming charges and premium users can access special guided tours from local runners. No need to run with your phone – an Apple Watch app is also available to help cut down your wind resistance. RunGo offers worldwide running routes.
