1. LoungeBuddy

When you don’t know any place to lounge in, there’s a huge chance you will waste time sitting at airports. Because I frequently fly on budget airlines with long layovers and poor connections, unclean seats, costly Wi-Fi, and awful food are all too common in my life.

Most of the time, lounges are only available when you have a lounge membership or business-class ticket. If you have one of these, then that’s good. You can just provide your details on “LoungeBuddy” app and it will direct you to the appropriate lounge areas fitting to your members.

On the other hand, if you do not own any membership, don’t fret for it can locate you available FREE lounge areas so you don’t get bored sitting at the airport.

2. Hostelworld

One of the handiest applications when traveling is the “Hostelworld”, it provides everything you’d need in terms of accommodation and hotel bookings. To add, this app is super user-friendly with searches, descriptions, and filter options.

It’s such a huge plus that the “Hostelworld” app has a simple, full-screen interactive map which makes it easier for you to find places you want to go. If you wish to check the important reviews of each hotel, you can easily tap away and read them.

3. Airbnb

I personally like this app for you can connect with the locals and ask them to book a hostel or a hotel for you. Airbnb gives you that social side where you can connect to local hosts and allow them to help you rent a complete apartment.

4. Skyscanner

Skyscanner is the best app when it comes to finding then booking cheap flights. It can easily provide millions of flights to choose from and comes from over 1,2000 sources that allow you have the best options. The handy chart feature will help you find the cheapest deals to your desired destination.

Here’s where you can get the Skyscanner app.

5. AirHelp

If you’ve ever been personally affected by a delayed or cancelled flight, or been denied boarding due to overbooking, AirHelp is for you. In such circumstances, both US and EU legislation give compensation, while the details differ. However, it’s a time-consuming process, and it seems that only about 1% of passengers who are eligible to compensation receive it.

This application simplifies the process and allows you to do it in a matter of minutes while still waiting at the airport. Simply provide your flight details and a few facts about the issue, and the firm will handle the rest. They take 25% of the reimbursement if the claim is successful, and you get the rest. You’ll also get a referral incentive if you refer anyone else on your flight to the firm.

6. TripIt

TripIt assists you in planning your upcoming trip. Simply forward your hotel, restaurant, flight, and car rental confirmation emails to plans@tripit.com, and the information will be instantly transferred to your master itinerary, permitting you to examine all of your upcoming arrangements at once. If you upgrade to the pro version, the company will find you alternate routes if your flights are canceled, as well as send you automatic airline warnings regarding flight delays, cancellations, and other issues. This is the perfect app to have if you travel a lot and have a lot of bookings to keep track of.

7. OpenRice

OpenRice is Asia’s version of Yelp. It displays the most popular restaurants in a city, as well as ratings, menus, and booking numbers. It’s popular in Southeast Asia and a better alternative to Yelp. Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines are all featured. The app offers you access to all of the website’s features.

8. Couchsurfing

This is the app for you if you want to reduce your hotel costs and meet locals while travelling. Couchsurfing links you with locals who offer free lodging in their homes to guests. The lodging is usually not fancy (thus the name “couch” surfing), but it is free, which will help you stick to your budget. You’ll get a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn more about the place from someone who truly lives there if you stay with a local.

If you don’t want to stay with a local, you can utilise the Hangouts option to meet up with other tourists or locals for coffee, cocktails, or to go to a museum. It’s a fantastic method for single travellers to meet new people and interact. Every budget traveller should get this app.

9. HotelTonight

HotelTonight offers incredible last-minute hotel room savings. It’s incredibly simple to use, and reserving a room doesn’t take long. You may search by city or attraction, or on the map, and then look at other travellers’ reviews and images. It also offers customer service that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is the app I use when I’m stuck somewhere and need last-minute accommodation.

10. Day Use

If you’re caught in the middle of a long stopover, Dayuse can get you into a hotel room for a few hours for up to 75% less than the normal overnight fee. The app has 5,000 hotels in 23 countries and allows you to cancel your reservation for free at the last minute if you catch an earlier flight.

You can search without an internet connection, and the app will even let you know if a restroom charges a fee.
