Summer is a hot season. It's time for holidays, vacations, trips to the grandmother to the country, to your favorite beaches or abroad. We decided to choose a list of applications that will help you with trips at any time of the year. It's just more pleasant to make them in the summer.

Step 1. Buy tickets

Aviasales – application for searching and buying tickets to anywhere in the world under the dates you need. The service will pick up your tickets for free and sort them from the best to the most expensive ones, with or without transfers. In the application, you can also save selected flights for tracking – this can be useful, because the price of a ticket may fall within a few days. Who will not be pleased to save a little? Even in the application, you can see a map of ticket prices in different countries and select the function “Anywhere” if you want spontaneity. iOS Android

SkyScanner – another application to search for tickets, where you can compare prices for tickets from different airlines, view a map of prices for tickets in different directions and purchase tickets there, in the app. iOS Android

Kayak. Works just like Aviasales or SkyScanner – searches the best variants of the tickets from different airlines. But you can use Kayak to search hotels and rent autos. In general, the app has many useful features and can be used for planning a trip as a whole. iOS Android

Omio (GoEuro) – great agregator for finding tickets for a bus, train or plane for the desired dates on European routes. In the application, you can compare ticket prices and book them. iOS Android

Flixbus – the app of the company, which is engaged in bus transport in Europe. In the application, you can pick up and buy bus tickets, often at really low prices! In the application, you can also cancel the purchase of a ticket (provided that more than an hour is left before departure), if necessary. By the way, now Flixbus has also been launched in the USA. iOS Android

Step 2. Rent housing

Booking.com – popular service for booking hotels all over the world.  iOS Android

Airbnb. Do you want to stay in hotels and prefer to have your own kitchen and home comfort on a trip? Then you can easily select and rent housing in the application of this service. Apartment in the attic or a villa in the mountains – here you will find a lot of housing options, which are rented by the owners themselves. View the rating of hosts, choose accommodation, chat with the owner, book, get bonuses for this – everything can be done in the Airbnb application. iOS Android

Couchsurfing. Application to search for accommodation and communication with local residents. In the app you can also see the events that will happen in the place where you are going. iOS Android

Step 3. Activity plan

Evenbrite – mobile app for finding interesting events in European and US cities. The service allows anyone to create, advertise and sell tickets for upcoming events, and also helps people find and share events that match their hobbies, whether it’s a party in the vicinity or a large concert at the stadium. iOS Android

izi. TRAVEL – audio guides for cities with the possibility of offline listening. There are more than 150 cities of Russia and Europe in the base of the guidebook. iOS  Android

Step 4. Preparing

WiFi Founder – free Wi-Fi points and passwords to them around the world. iOS  Android

Google Translator – it’s not easy to travel abroad without a dictionary and basic proficiency of a foreign language, so the most convenient application for translating words and speaking is Google Translator.
