Best Apps for Business Travel
When traveling, you are often reliant on your phone to help you navigate a new city. There are tons of apps now that can help you with that, but some are much better than others to help you with what you need. Here are some of the best apps for business travel.
Concur is a free app that can help you manage your business travel, expenses, and invoices. It allows you to snap photos of your receipts and file them with your company right there, so you do not need to worry about losing your receipts. You can also import charges on your credit card and edit your expenses through the app.
Google Maps is the top app for helping you navigate a city, save locations you will need to go to in advance, and help you find anything in the city, from restaurants to specific stores. If you are taking public transit, Google Maps can help you find the routes and schedules you will need to get around.
Skyscanner is a free app that allows you to find the best flights for your trip. It will link you to airlines and travel agents, and help you find the best times and prices for your trip.
You can even save your search to be alerted whenever a cheaper flight is found. It can also help you book hotels and car rentals.
Packing Pro will help you organize packing, giving you a checklist that will break down everything you need by category. You simply tell the app how long your trip will be, where you are going, and the anticipated weather. You will also be able to tell it if you plan on swimming or if there is a washing machine where you will be staying. From there, the app will give you a list of clothing, shoes, and other necessities you may need on your trip, which you can edit to suit your needs. If there are any things you need to do before you go, like renewing your passport, you can set up a reminder on the app.
If you need Wi-Fi in a new city, this app will give you a map of free Wi-Fi hotspots in your area. These are all crowdsourced by the users of the app, and they can rate the internet quality of each location, provide passwords, and mark new locations as they are discovered. WiFi Map says it has the locations of over 100,000,000 Wi-Fi hotspots all over the world.
TripAdvisor is a popular app to help you find anything in the area, and it provides you with reviews ratings, and suggestions. It is easy to use and can help you get around, no matter how long your trip is.
If you love working out, ClassPass is a great app for you. It is a monthly membership with more flexibility than you get at a gym. ClassPass gives you access to local gyms, with your monthly membership providing a credit system to fund the membership.
If you want to sign up for fitness classes while traveling, ClassPass Flex can help you with that.
