How to optimize your trip: apps for travel and business trips

1. Evernote

Evernote is probably one of the best apps for business owners. It has turned the phone into a real workstation. С Evernote you can create To-Do lists, take notes, share content with team members, and organize everything from documents, photos, and articles from the Internet. Evernote can also be used as a digital assistant during business trips. You can easily scan business cards and save them as contacts, track expenses and plan your trips, saving on flights or reservations.Evernote The app is free to download for Android, iOS, and Windows users.

2. Uber

One of the most stressful things about business tripping is trying to figure out how to get to a certain point. Of course, there is public transportation. But, it is not always convenient, because there is luggage, and you need to have a good understanding of where what transport goes. You can rent a car. But, try to park a car in a big city. That's why Uber - is very convenient. You can go when it's convenient for you. And, importantly, you will know in advance how much the fare will be.I use Uber Everywhere. Literally every trip. Unlike some competitors, Uber there are in almost every country. So no matter where I go, I know for sure, Uber Will be there. The best in Uber that I don't have to worry about having money or a credit card. It's only worth taking care of beforehand.Uber The app is available on the App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Store for free.

3. Yelp/Opentable

During business trips, almost the only thing that can make you happy is to visit some new restaurants, especially if they are on the road. Thanks to numerous review sites, this is easy. А Yelp is a similar review app where you can see not only reviews from customers, but you can get a referral or phone number if you want to make a reservation.OpenTable You use an app like this when you want to view the menu or make a reservation. Wouldn't it be awkward to invite your partners to dinner without making a reservation in advance? Both apps are free to install and compatible with Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

4. Expensify

Expensify - is an incredible app that simplifies travel expenses. You can do everything: conduct various credit card transactions, scan receipts and enter travel receipts, miles and hours.

For administrative staff Expensify is a useful application, allowing you to process hundreds of reports with the click of a mouse, reimburse employees directly to an account, and develop instructions on how to pay them.Expensify has free apps for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone.

5. TripIt

If you're too busy to plan your itinerary, you should definitely download Tripit. All you have to do is forward all your booking information by mail (hotels, airline tickets, car rentals, restaurants) - and the app automatically converts the emails into a travel itinerary. The itinerary synchronizes with your calendar and allows you to share it with your favorite contacts. You can view your itinerary online or offline, and it works on any device.While the app itself TripIt for free, I recommend that you pump it up to Pro The $ version is 4.09 per month if you have a lot of flights scheduled. С Pro version, you'll receive real-time flight reminders, the ability to search for alternative flights, notifications of the best available seats, and all the benefits of VIP travel.

6. Airbnb

If you are not a fan of staying in hotels and would like to immerse yourself in the culture of the places you visit, the mobile app Airbnb can be a good place to start, especially when looking for small cottages and entire apartments to rent, while traveling. Yes, staying in hotels or vacation rentals has its pros and cons. On my business trips, I prefer to stay overnight with AirbnbThe app is free and allows you to book and leave reviews directly through the app itself for existing customers Airbnb.source
