Skyscanner: App to search for flights, hotels, and cars

This app, available on iOS and Android, has 11 alternatives to help you find flight tickets at the best price. Notifications to alert you of new travel deals. Suggestions to find the best accommodation. Make reservations and a wide list of companies to rent cars.

Skyscanner has a wide range of offers for all types of travelers. Some only look for a couple of trips a year for leisure. Whereas others have decided to become digital nomads. In this case, they’ll need to plan a good number of flights each year.

Holafly international eSIM: App to manage the data plan

Having cellular internet is an essential requirement for travelers. For this reason, this app has become an excellent alternative to activate and manage eSIM with cellular data in more than 170 destinations, including multi-country eSIMs, like the best Asian eSIM for travelers or the best European eSIM.

Until recently, travelers had to buy a prepaid SIM card at each destination to access the internet.

This means spending time searching for a local operator. And many times, facing problems due to language and cultural barriers that are likely to complicate the process even more.

With this type of app, everything is now more accessible! For example, Holafly users can buy eSIM cards through the online store and then download the international eSIM app on their cellphones to have control of active and non-active eSIMs. They can also check payments made and daily consumption.

The Holafly app is available for iOS and Android. However, some features, such as automatic installation, are only available for iOS 17.4 or later.

Passporter: App to travel and make the best plans

Some travelers enjoy traveling with friends and having all the itineraries in the same place. This is precisely the purpose of Passporter, an app created to plan, share recommendations, and exchange travel itineraries at any destination with your group travel.

Passporter aims to be your personal travel guide. The idea is that each traveler downloads this app, looks for inspiration, and builds their itinerary into the app, but also has recommendations available from other travelers.

The App is available on iOS and Android

HotelTonight: App to find hotels at the best price

If you’re on a last-minute business or personal trip and need to find incredible deals at the best hotels, you have to get to know this app. Available on iOS and Android.

With 3 taps and a swipe on HotelTonight, your reservation will be ready!

It doesn’t matter if you forgot to book a hotel room in time, or if you arrived at your destination and want to stay longer. This app will help you discover rooms that hotels have not been able to book and maybe you’ll find the best options, even saving a good amount of money.

Surely on one of your trips, you have forgotten to make the list of essential things to make your trip as comfortable as possible. For this reason, we want to talk to you about Packpoint. This is a free app that will help you organize everything you need to take on your next trip.

Once you are in the app, you search for your next destination, define the date, the days of stay, the type of trip (business or leisure), and the activities you want to do.

With this information, you’ll have a checklist of everything you need to take in your luggage and the best thing is that you can share it with your fellow travelers.

In addition to helping you with your location, this app provides you with 45 features in total, helping you find places of interest, share your location in real-time, search for parking spaces, post your reviews and ratings of any touristic hotspot, keep track of the cities you’ve visited, save your favorite places, download maps for offline viewing and much more.
