TripIt Travel Organiser

If you only want to download one app before you travel, it's wise to make it this one. TripIt is a comprehensive planning app that allows you to organise your work itinerary, find directions to where you need to go, sync plans with accounts such as Outlook and Google Calendar, and even find out what the weather's going to be like all in one place.

You can even email confirmation emails for things like flights, hotels and restaurant reservations to the company and have them draw you up a personalised itinerary on your behalf.

Why is this app so good for business travel? Schedules and information stored on TripIt can be synced, viewed and edited across devices, so you'll never be stuck without booking information, timetables and other details while travelling for work. It's the perfect way for busy people to keep on top of things while away.

For when you're in an unfamiliar town or city and need to find a place to eat, shop or just sit down and work, Yelp provides an invaluable guide to where to go whilst travelling. With star ratings and price ranges clearly displayed when selecting a particular location, you won't have to worry about getting into something you don't want to or being lost without dinner or a decent coffee.

It also allows you to look up contact numbers and addresses of nearby businesses, making it easier to book.

Why is this app so good for business travel? There's nothing worse than being lost in a strange place for the night and not knowing where to go or how to get there. This app gives you the knowledge and experience of thousands of locals and alerts you to the best places in the vicinity.
