Three mobile downloads that will take the stress out of travel
For The Long Layover
LoungeBuddy? More like LoungeBestie. The app propels avid travelers into pro territory, unlocking a labyrinth of airport lounges and their amenities. Sync your itinerary to see your options— rated from Luxe to Basic, along with photos, price, services, and user reviews— and book directly on your phone, before takeoff or on the fly. Free for iOS and Android.
For The Weekend Warrior
Strava makes solo fitness social, no matter where you are. The app connects cyclists and runners through shared routes, with locals’ favorite spots mapped across the world. On its website, Strava also offers athletic-minded guides for cities, from Sao Paulo to Sydney. Free for iOS and Android.
For The Pack Rat
Suitcase staffers, cool your jets: With just a few taps of your fingertip, PackPoint generates customized packing lists based on gender, location, and length of stay. Before spitting out a detailed list of must-haves, the app checks the weather forecast and considers your itinerary, suggesting clothing to help you plan accordingly. Free for iOS and Android.
