Organising a good holiday, at the right time, place and price has always been a bit of a pain. Luckily your mobile can host a wide range of apps to make the experience and, by extension, your holiday, a much less stressful one. Here at Techscheme we’ve put together a list of great apps for holidaymakers as well as suggesting some great mobiles that you can use them with. All mobiles bought through Techscheme come with up to 12% off the RRP and allow you to spread the cost on those top tech investments.
To start with you’ll want to make sure that you’re picking up the best deals on your travel, this is where Hopper comes in. It lets you check the cheapest dates to fly just like similar apps, but it analyses billions of flights to ingeniously use push notifications to let you know exactly when the best time to buy is.
If you’re into budget deals then you’ll probably know that now is the time to invest in last year’s mobiles, they’ll still be strong performers but you can get them cheaper now they’ve been pushed from the cutting edge. The iPhone 6s fits the bill nicely, and at Techscheme we’ll save you a further £71 on the Apple mobile.
Next, you’re going to want to make sure you’ve got everything for your trip, PackPoint is on point for you here. The intelligent packing app and packing list builder help you to make and remember a detailed inventory of what you need for the trip. Key in where you’re going, when and what activities you’ve planned, and the app will put together a list of things it thinks you’ll need. It checks the weather at your destination against the length of your stay making sure you’re perfectly prepared for what meets you when you get there.
If you don’t want to be worried about the weather then the waterproof Samsung Galaxy S8 is probably the mobile for you, we’re not suggesting you go diving with it but it’ll handily survive an accidental dip. What’s more, the brand-new phone is available at Techscheme with savings of up to £82.
Hotel tonight is a great app for those who find themselves somewhere on a whim, or for anyone hampered by delays and cancellations. It checks over 15 thousand hotels for the best last minute deals so that you can easily book in for the best deal up to a week in advance. It’s great on the go, and you can book a room within 10 seconds.
If you’re a devil may care sort of traveller you might want to think about investing in a mobile that performs well without costing too much. The Samsung Galaxy A3 fits the bill, combining decent performance in a low-cost mobile. Even though it’s already priced reasonably, at Techscheme we could still save you a further £33.
Circa / Memrise / Google Trip
Lastly, we’ll go through a for of apps for dealing with miscellaneous holiday needs. Circa is an app for Android and iOS that’s great if you’re going to be hopping around multiple time zones as it keeps track of the time where you are, where you’re going to and the time back home. Memrise is a language app for Android and iOS. It has intelligent learning and easy mnemonic features to get you up to speed with common words and phrases for your travel.
Lastly, there’s Google Trip for Android and iOS. It lets you do pretty much everything, from list making to recommending things to do at your destination to holding all your travel reservations in one easy spot, it’s a must for the organised holiday maker. If you want to make sure your mobile can handle everything too, then considering the iPhone 7 is a must. Apple’s best mobile yet can handle anything you throw at it and at Techscheme we can save you up to £95 on it.
|iPhone 7 256GB||£799.00||£95.88||£703.12|
