Holidays are very exciting times, those preflight nerves and looking up all the things you can do (or not do, sometimes just relaxing is what you need).  However, before you get to the good part there’s a somewhat stressful part: planning. Where to go, booking flights, choosing accommodation, what to pack, and crossing your fingers hoping nothing will go wrong.


Lucky for you we have a few travel apps up our sleeves that could save you some time, so you can focus on the good bits!

If any of your meticulously planned flights are delayed, cancelled or overbooked you should check out AirHelp.

This app turns it into a clear and simple process, by entering your flight information and some details about the mishap the company will manage the rest!


This startup is committed to fighting for air passengers’ rights, making the compensation process as simple and accessible as possible. Over on their website, you will find plenty of information on when you have compensation rights along with how much you are entitled to.
