BOOKING a break, heading home for Christmas or travelling the continent – nobody wants to pay over the odds.
But there are apps which can help save you from doing just that.
With the click of a few buttons, you can get the best seats for less: on airlines including Easyjet, FlyBe and Ryanair – not to mention package holidays with the likes of TUI and First Choice.
And if you’re always on the hunt for extra luggage, an early check-in or optional stop-over, you might be surprised at what’s out there.
To help you track down great deals, we’ve picked five of the best travel apps, and start uncovering offers.
LoungeBuddy helps take some of the stress out of airport travel by offering you access to premium lounges worldwide.
The app lets you discover which lounges you already have access to. Or you can book and purchase entry to a host of others too.
Now you can freshen up, relax and get away from it all before your next flight.
- LoungeBuddy is a free app – get it for iOS here.
Skiplagged displays the prices airlines don’t want you to know about by showing hidden-city flights.
Hidden-city flights are when you get off at a layover rather than the final destination.
You can also track flight prices and receive alerts when prices drop – and check out great hotel deals too.
Hitlist is good for the social traveller. Check out places your friends have been so you can get access to recommendations you can trust.
Build your own bucket list and Hitlist will send you some of the best fares and itineraries around, so you can check out the best time to travel.
You can also share your list and recruit other friends or travellers to join you.
You don’t need to predict the future to guess flight prices. Hopper uses its algorithms to discover the best time to buy and fly.
Simply type in where you want to go, and Hopper will tell you whether to wait or run to the gate, with notifications whenever there’s a price drop too.
SkyScanner lets you find cheap flights, hotels, trains and car hire.
The app shows the best prices in its Top Deals Feature, as well as the quickest routes available.
You can also set up price drop notifications, check out last-minute holidays and search for travel inspiration too.
