TripIt organises travel plans into an itinerary that has all of your trip details in one place.

TripAdvisor - Trip planning travel apps

Pick where to stay – TripAdvisor
iPhone, Android, Windows Phone
We all know the deal with TripAdvisor. It’s by no means perfect, but used with a critical eye you can ensure you’re picking the right place to stay. TripAdvisor’s mobile app offers a slick way of searching through its 60 million hotel, restaurant and attraction reviews. The iPhone-only Jetsetter app is a good-looking alternative.

Packing Pro - Trip planning travel apps

Don’t forget your toothbrush – Packing Pro
Packing lists aren’t for everyone. But for those who enjoy a spot of “life admin”, Packing Pro can help eliminate those last minute “What am I forgetting?” head-scratching moments. Unfortunately, it’s only available on iPhone – though not as easy on the eye, Packing List – Full is a decent equivalent on Android.

Toshl Finance - Trip planning travel apps

Count your pennies – Toshl Finance
iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone
No one wants to return to financial ruin from a trip. Toshl’s a simple tool enables you to set-up budgets before travelling and then reconcile expenses with those budgets when away. It also has daily exchange rates for more than 30 currencies.

Flightrack - Trip-planning travel apps

Keep track of your flight – FlightTrack
iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone
FlightTrack provides real-time updates on flight status, gates, delays and cancellations for some 5,000 airports and 1,400 airlines. Airplane geeks might get a kick out of the handsome map displaying an aircraft’s location relative to its flight path. The app also incorporates SeatGuru’s airplane seating maps, so you can ensure you chose a good seat when checking in online.
