Find a flight, hotel, or car rental
With its stripped-down interface, Kayak is easy to use, making it our favorite way to look up airfares, as well as hotel rooms and rental cars. For flights, you can sort your results by price, trip length, and even departure and arrival times using Kayak’s signature sliders. One hitch: you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro version to get first- and business-class fare quotes.
Cost: Free; $1.99 for the Pro version.
Runs On: Android, BlackBerry, iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, Windows Mobile.
Manage your vacation right from your phone
Forward all your travel confirmations to Worldmate and it automatically updates an online profile, keeps track of flight delays and gate changes, and even reminds you to check in on time. You also get weather forecasts, a currency converter, a tip calculator, world clocks, local restaurant and shopping listings (with directions), and the ability to make hotel and flight reservations.
Cost: Free; $14.99 for the Gold version, which gives you faster updates.
Runs On: BlackBerry, iPhone/iPod Touch, Symbian, Windows Mobile.
