Now that we’re all well into the technology age, there are many ways to get around the inconvenience of travel and even save some money along the way. Your iPhone or Android phone has access to an infinite amount of mobile applications, some of which are perfect to have on vacation as they’ll save you time, energy, and money.

Whether you’re taking a train or flying on vacation, any mobile app with the intent to save you money on a trip is life-changing. Here are some of the best money-savers out there to download on your phone:

Airline tickets are never the same price. They change daily and drop in price when you least expect. That’s where Hopper comes in. This mobile app tells you when to fly and when to buy. This app is data-driven, with billions of flight prices powering its search engine, helping you determine when the best time to buy your plane tickets are. The app even comes equipped with predictions on cheaper dates that you could choose to travel.

Ever wonder where people get special deals on flying? ExpertFlyer is one of the many airline apps that is designed to give travelers an advantage over the airlines. The app reveals awards and upgrades associated with your flights, can give you special codes, and tips on how you can upgrade. This service is definitely for the frequent flyer.

This food-related app finds local restaurants and cafes in your area and reveals limited time deals and offers. The offers can last anywhere from 25 minutes to 3 hours and usually consist of a free drink or side with the purchase of an entree. The options are endless, but can save you quite a chunk of change if you’re traveling with a large group.

Hote Tonight
When Hotel Tonight launched its app, it primarily offered last-minute hotel room deals, but since, has become a service of overall discounted hotel rooms that you can book up to seven days in advance. This app is perfect for the road tripper or spontaneous traveler.
