Many of us with Windows devices (Laptop, Surface) don’t think about downloading and using apps available through the Microsoft Store. However, those who travel may find that good travel search apps can be convenient when booking flights, car rentals and hotels on the go. Although the options are limited, downloading apps from the Microsoft Store is simple and explained in How to Install Apps in Windows 10. Let’s take a look at the short list of travel searches available as Windows apps.
One of the most useful apps to use while on the go is TripAdvisor. As well as being the original go-to for traveler reviews and travel Forums, the Windows TripAdvisor app also:
- Includes an instant booking option that enables you to compare and book while on the go
- Includes the ability to zero in quickly on information from the location you’re at with ‘Near Me Now’
- You can share your travel experiences via your own reviews and photos
Another good Microsoft travel app for flights is Skyscanner. Here are a few highlights:
- Quick, easy access to flight routes
- Price alerts to ensure you find the best deal
- For travel inspiration, select the ‘Everywhere’ feature
- Access the Top Deals feature for additional inspiration
Trivago is a comprehensive resource for searching hotels.
- They offer international hotel discounts and deals
- You can search hotels by their Rating Index which amalgamates scores for each hotel and helps you make the right choice.
- You can set a trip itinerary
- Find hotels within your budget that are near the best attractions and events.
Just a few airlines offer a Windows version of their app. As of this writing, both American Airlines and British Air offer apps through the Microsoft Store.
