Planning and pulling off a fun vacation that’s still affordable is no easy feat. Use a few apps for backup at the beginning, middle and end of your trip.



First thing’s first, you’re going to need to plan the vacation. Shop around for your flight and browse cruise deals, or bundle. The app keeps everything in your trip together, organized and easily accessible. Kayak compares prices for you, but don’t let that stop you from doing some digging on your own with Booking.com, Priceline, HotelTonight and even Skyscanner.
