Are you ready to fly the friendly skies this holiday season?
During the holidays, your trip home can turn into flying the stressful skies.
There are a few holiday travel apps that might take the scrooge out of your traveling experience.
The first app is called SERVICE.
“Service is an app that knows when you fly and if your flight is canceled or delayed, it works to get you compensated from the airline," said Michael Schneider - Founder CEO of Service App.
Hundreds of reviews show people getting just that, cold hard cash, vouchers and miles.
“Behind the scenes we automatically file a claim with the airline, you don’t even have to lift a finger. We try to take the sting out of that delay and give passengers the peace of mind that someone is on their side," said Schneider.
Lets face it, the season of giving is expensive. Tack on that expensive holiday flight and your wallet will be empty, unless you use an app called HOPPER.
Hopper uses data to predict when you should buy your flights and hotels. The app will notify you when prices drop and offers the fastest way to book your travel.
Another holiday travel headache is getting to the airport late and seeing TSA lines out the door. The MiFlight app will be your pain reliever.
MiFlight features more than 150 of the world’s top airports. Simply search your airport, terminal and gate. You will receive up to the second updates on how long the TSA wait is.
If you are taking a road trip to grandma’s house and will be looking for a bite to eat? A restroom? WiFi? Fuel? Something to see along the way? Download iExit. The app will track your location and alert you with what’s ahead well in advance.
Finally, unexpected vehicle trouble could leave you stranded. If you don’t have AAA, download Urgent.ly. The app will connect you to a call center that will make sure you get a tow, gas, tire change, battery charge or lockout assistance.
Just a few ways to help make your holidays a little brighter!
