As much as we all love the details of the wedding day itself most couples I know look forward to the honeymoon just as much as the wedding. There is no other vacation quite like a honeymoon. It is a special time for a couple to be able to relax and let all of the wonderful memories of vows, family, friends, and fun from their wedding sink in.
One of the best apps I’ve found to simplify honeymoon and travel arrangements is Kayak. This app can help ensure a restful and stress-free honeymoon experience by keeping itineraries and lists organized as well as providing real time answers to travel questions while you are away from home.
Kayak is an aggregate service that allows you to search several airlines, hotels, and car rental services to compare prices. You can book hotel, airline, and car rental reservations with a few simple taps of your thumb. The latest version of Kayak (18.0.0) may be downloaded for free at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kayak-flight-hotel-search/id305204535?mt=8.
Kayak’s homepage has 15 main categories including hotels, flights, cars, my trips, flight tracker, price alerts, airline directory, airline fees, airport information, buzz, beacon, packing list, currency converter, my bookings, and feedback.
The list of services you can access using Kayak are numerous. Here are some of my favorites:
Planning Your Vacation:
- Compare hotel, airline, and car rental prices from numerous companies
- Fare alert notification so you can get the best airfare rates
- Up to date information about additional costs like additional bags, pets, and meals
- Forward booking confirmation emails to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be saved and organized all in one place—no more digging through your carryon bag to find your confirmation number!
- Keep all of your packing lists in one place
While You Are Traveling:
- Simple to use currency converter for wherever you travel
- Have flight delay and status updates automatically sent to you
- Flight tracker allows you to see if your flight is on time
- Phone directory to all major airlines so you can contact them directly
- Airport information allows you to easily locate ATMs, restaurants, restrooms and more wherever you are waiting
There are always a few unexpected surprises while traveling but I’ve found this app will help keep the challenges to a minimum and fun and relaxation to a maximum. Let Kayak do the work while you relax. Congratulations to all of the brides and grooms and bon voyage as you embark on your first journey as husband and wife!
