Travel technology is an exploding space. Do yourself a favor and use of some of this tech during the holidays.
Hipmunk recommends TripIt to help avoid the stress of missed flights. The TripIt app tells users when to leave for the airport based on their location, flight status and real-time traffic conditions, and provides details about security wait times at the airport.
LoungeBuddy allows travelers to access any of the lounges in its network for as little as $25. No memberships, elite status or first-class tickets needed.
“You’ll have comfy couches, more outlets for your electronics, food and alcoholic beverages and depending on the lounge, you can find even better perks. I’ve taken a shower at an airport lounge,” Iverson said. “It’s the perfect perk when your red-eye lands early in the morning and you’re going straight from the airport to your in-law’s place.”
