Skyscanner is our favorite app to use when it’s time to book a flight. It scans thousands of airlines and travel companies to give you the best results, narrowed by price, flight duration or landing time. We love its user-friendly interface which also allows you to search for hotels and car rentals, and features price alerts and the cheapest flights for weekend trips.

This app is great for spontaneous travel or those of you who wait until last minute to plan your accommodations. HotelTonight seeks to provide a mobile approach to booking hotels (because we’re all on our phones, all the time). The company grabs those last minute vacant rooms at your favorite hotels and provides a quick 3-tap booking process.
Many people think that renting an Airbnb rather than a hotel room means an automatic skimp in luxury and hospitality, but that’s not always the case. Some of the most unique and magical places can only be found on Airbnb, and are rented out by hosts who have the hospitality thing down pat. The Airbnb app makes it easy to browse and save your favorites for future travel.
