Handy Apps for Travel Deals

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2014) - Put your smartphone to work while you're on vacation by using the latest apps to help you find the best hotel deals in town. Hotels, national parks, gas stations and even swimming pools can be located with a quick tap, leading you to great deals and insider tips. Apps come in all shapes and sizes, some more useful than others. Marriott has a cool new infographic which can help you find these deals, but here are a few tips to make your trip a breeze.

  • Tripit "automagically" collects all your travel details into one handy itinerary on your smartphone or tablet. No more frantic searching for that complicated flight plan from Topeka to Timbuktu, it's all in one safe place.
  • Oh, Ranger! does more than help you find national, state, and even local parks. You can also search for park activities by season, so you'll know just when to help plant Early Blue Violets for silverspot butterfly conservation.
  • Yelp! connects you to fine dining, cheap eats, good coffee and local brews at your current location. Better yet, you can read reviews before you go so you know the absolute best place to grab a burrito on your way home from that hip new bar you found via fellow "yelpers."
  • Gas Buddy can keep you truckin' and help you save a buck when you fill up your car. It can be a lifesaver when you're in a new town and running on fumes, or you want to track down the cheapest prices in town.

You'll find more than great deals and high-demand amenities at Marriott hotels. Local knowledge, helpful advice and friendly staff always come with your reservation.
