2017 Travel Apps You Need Right Now

Planning to travel in 2017? There's an app for that. As the world becomes increasingly connected through wirelessly connected devices, more and more apps are being developed to help us navigate that world.

To help you plan and travel with ease in 2017, we have pulled together a list of new and tried-and-true travel apps you need to try right now.

  1. Grab

Have you ever been on a long day of flying, but with a tight schedule? Airports -- unlike cities -- aren't easy to map out food sources before you arrive. It's easy to miss a meal or two while traveling because you had a short amount of time -- and little knowledge of what food is available to you in your terminal. Enter -- Grab. The Grab app allows you to find restaurants within airport terminals to ensure you can find a quick bite to eat that meets your dietary needs. The app now has features for mobile ordering too, so you can order ahead and just swing through the spot on your way to the gate.

  1. Dayuse.com

If you're stuck on a long layover, you'll likely suffer from airport fatigue. You want to shower, take a nap, and be away from people for a while -- but you don't want to cough up the cash to buy a hotel room for the whole night when you won't be sleeping there. Dayuse.com is an app with a solution. The app allows you to book a hotel room -- at reputable hotels not traditionally sleazy by-the-hour motels -- for a few hours use. The rates are up to 75% off the overnight price. Take a nap, shower, and then make your evening flight.

  1. Cool Cousin

Traveling to new places is always better if you can get the local, immersive experience. But what if you don't know anyone in the area? Cool Cousin is a new app that connects you with people in certain locations around the globe -- 14 and growing -- to experience off-the-beaten-path parts of your travel destination. Find out the hot spots to eat, party, and explore that you won't find in a guidebook.

  1. Sidekix

The fastest route isn't always the most fun to travel. While you're out exploring, sometimes you want to take the scenic route, but most GPS navigators don't have a search function for "prettiest drive." That's where Sidekix could come in handy. This app will deliver you a travel route based on your interests. If, for example, you want to grab lunch at a funky local spot on your way to the art gallery, Sidekix will show you the best walking route to take. Want to plan a pub crawl in a new city? Sidekix can help with that too! Now get walking!

  1. Geosure

Traveling to an unfamiliar place can be exciting, but comes with certain risks. How do you know if you're about to wander into an unsafe neighborhood or if there's political unease in certain regions? The Geosure app offers location-based information on recent crime, political uprisings, and even environmental threats in areas.

If, while out traveling in the world, you find yourself in Pennsylvania, there's a good chance you'll need airport car service Pittsburgh. These apps may help you navigate the globe, but they can't find you a Pittsburgh limo service like Regency Global Transportation. Once you've found food with Grub and a hotel, please contact us for clean, safe, comfortable rides with highly-trained, customer-orientated chauffeurs. There's no better way to ride.

From our clients:

Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
