Travel apps to book your winter vacation

Travel apps to book your winter vacation


The perfect winter vacation should save you from the stresses of everyday life - so why should you let travel plans cause you any more? Make your getaway plans easier and more organized by installing some of 2014's hottest travel apps. The world of travel apps is vast and constantly evolving, so it should be easy to find an app for all of your vacation needs - hotel booking, sightseeing, transportation and dinner reservations.

Here are just a few apps to get you started:

AFAR Media
AFAR's new mobile app offers a customizable digital travel guide, helping users base their decisions off the reviews gathered from over 45,000 travel experiences. Travelers can create a shareable itinerary, accessible on or offline, and add reviews and stories of their own for the benefit of future visitors. And fortunately, the app is freely available on iOS devices.

Creating flight plans doesn't have to be a headache - just use JetRadar, a free iOS app that helps you compare the airfares of 728 airlines across 40 travel agencies and five different booking systems. There's no easier way of finding the flight plan that will give you the best bang for your buck.

If you're someone who loves to document your vacation with travel logs, you'll love Grid. This app lets users store photos and keep track of desired visiting sites, providing a unique trip-planning platform that can be edited before, during or after your vacation. Create a collaborative trip journal with your travel buddies using this free iOS app.

Missing friends and family back at home? No worries, just download Spin, a video chat app that allows up to nine-way communication among users. Its fast, high-quality video platform lets you have real-time conversations with your video partners, free of lag or breaks in video. Spin can be downloaded from the U.S. iTunes store for free and is available for iPhones and iPads.

Booking hotels has never been this exciting. HotelTonight allows same-day booking at hotels in 17 countries and more than 250 travel spots. Book unsold rooms for better values with this easy, secure and free app for iOS and Android. Recent improvements to the app let users make hotel reservations as early as 9 a.m., share hotel photos using a new Snapchat feature, and look into a destination's top luxury suites with the "HighRoller" option.

Peek Tours and Activities
With the Peek Tours and Activities app installed, you'll never have a moment of downtime during your trip. Peek provides users with tips from travel experts on the best sites to see and restaurants at which to dine. This free iOS app creates an elegant grid of photos to give you ideas for your next move. 

While winter vacation is a great time to leave most of your worries at home, the security of your mobile device is not something to forget about. Keep your mobile device, data and personal identity protected while abroad with ProtectCELL's mobile phone insurance. ProtectCELL services will let you enjoy the many benefits of travel apps while staying worry-free.
