Best Apps and Websites for Travelers - Articles | Travel + Leisure Here's a list that takes it a step further. This list has some pretty decent tools for planes, trains, autos, hotels, activities, phones, tour info, wi-fi, weather and all sorts of stuff related to travel. I can only imagine how valuable these tools would be in the hands of tech capable travelers (I'll live vicariously thru your tales).
Some we have discussed on Insiders; seatguru #6, points.com#7, hoteltonight#15 etc etc
Others that I've had good use for;
viator #10 - highlighting activities - good for knowing what's what and then I can look for deals (sometimes using the viator vendor)
Hipmunk #14 - yes planes, but also finding hotels in specific neighborhoods or near specific landmarks (then I check out hotels/restaurants)
Eventsearcher#35 - similar to viator, pretty interesting stuff
Google translate#40 - I guess I'll break down and have handy for my Paris trip, to help me avoid ordering cow organs for breakfast
Master the local trains #29 - oh man, can you imagine pluto with this in her hands!
airbnb#12 - I'm tellin' ya - that's the future of some great stays!
Dive in and see what's what (or not)
