Below are the top six things tourists must do before commencing a trip. Under each point, we've recommended the best apps for that particular need.

I) Check And Compare Prices Of Hotel, Flight, And Travel Bookings.

Whenever you plan a short or long trip to any place in the world, more often than not you’re flooded with choices and options ranging from super cheap to ultra expensive. The variety and size of choices itself can get quite overwhelming. To make the booking process easier, there are comparison apps which simultaneously compare these options from various sources. These apps take the guesswork out of the equation for finding the perfect accommodation, flights, taxis, restaurants among other services which you’ll need while you’re traveling.
