Frequently Asked Questions

Can I book in the app?
From Yelp (Web) to OpenTable (Windows, Web) to Hotels.com (Windows, Web) to Booking.com (Windows, Web), any app that you're using to check out restaurants, hotels, and tourist destinations should let you book the experience within the service.
What are my transportation options?
You need to know your transportation options when traveling from the airport to your hotel or out and about on your trip. Is an on-demand ride service like Lyft or Uber available at your destination, or do you need to take a taxi? Or is there a train that can take you from the airport to your lodgings?
What info do I need?
When searching for info on a particular destination, it helps to have all the info you need -- maps, touring routes, currency, translation, scheduling, restaurant and hotel, and points of interest -- in one place.
How do I get there?
3D maps, trip routes, direction, and topographical data are critical when you're researching how to get to and navigate unfamiliar locations. For example, Google Earth (Windows, Mac) has a function called Street View where you can often see what a storefront or neighborhood looks like at street level.
What about calendar integration?
No matter which destination app you're using, calendar integration is critical, so that you can put your reservations or schedule on a native or Google calendar. TripIt (Web), for example, syncs your itinerary with your favorite online calendar automatically.
