5 Travel Apps to Ease Your Memorial Day Weekend

Are you traveling somewhere exciting this Memorial Day weekend? Check out these 5 apps for improving your travel experience this holiday.

Memorial Day weekend is one of the busiest travel times of the year. It will kick off the summer traveling season, particularly for air travel. With this will come longer wait times, because many summer travelers are infrequent or first-time flyers — meaning that they’re typically less familiar with the latest air travel rules and procedures. If you’re looking for a way to improve your travel experience this Memorial Day, check out the following apps to get you through the airport faster and make your flight more pleasant.

  1. TripIt: Travel Organizer

This is a top-rated, free app from the Play store that will create a travel schedule for any of your upcoming trips. This well-designed app will organize all of your travel information in one place so that your travel experience is as stress-free as possible. Through TripIt, you’ll be able to access all of your plans from any device, even if your device is offline. You can upgrade to TripIt Pro for real-time flight information and alerts, tips and tricks, assistance with changing a flight, and more.
