By Rieva Lesonsky, Xerox – I’ve been a frequent business traveler for more years than I care to count. During that time, some aspects of business travel have gotten worse (like crowds, TSA checkpoints and airline legroom) but others have gotten much, much better (like airfares, hotel beds and mobile apps).
Mobile apps can streamline business travel in ways unheard of even 10 years ago—and they’re getting more sophisticated every year. Here are 23 great mobile apps for business travelers to check out. (Unless otherwise indicated, all are free.)
- Tripit: Forward all your hotel, flight, car rental, and restaurant confirmations to the app and it automatically creates a master itinerary for you. View it any time, on any device, even when you’re offline. The Tripit Pro plan ($49/year) comes with lots of additional features, like real-time flight alerts, rewards tracking and automatically sharing your itinerary with your chosen circle, that are more than worth it for a frequent traveler.
