How to Book Your Next Holiday With Your Phone
Summer’s practically here and at Asda Mobile, we’ve been filling out holiday forms, but in our haste to compete for time, we’ve yet to actually book our holiday! Not to worry though, there’s still plenty of time to grab your phone and get yourself organised for some time in the sun.
Get in the air Gone are the days when finding a flight meant you had to go down to the high street and speak with a travel agent.
Thanks to apps like Skyscanner, all you need to do is put in the dates you want to travel and a destination, and it will bring up a selection of the best deals. Once you’ve saved your search history in Skyscanner, it will even notify when the price changes, encouraging you to book when the price is right.
Find a place to sleep The next thing you need to get sorted is your accommodation. Your phone is a gateway to a whole host of fantastic hostels, homes and hotels just waiting to be checked out in countries across the world.
For the authentic “travelling” experience, use Hostleworld to search more than 33,000 properties. If you want to rent out somebody’s home, Airbnb could be the solution. For a more conventional hotel-based set-up, use the popular Booking.com app – over 20 million others are already doing so!
Locate the unknown If you’re anything like us, you don’t really like sitting still for too long. To really make the most of your holiday, it’s a good idea to make plans and be prepared.
There are plenty of ways to do this straight from your phone, for example using Atlas Obscura online to find where you’re going, CityMapper app to help you get here efficiently, and the magical Field Trip app to give you more info on what you’re looking at once you’re there.
And with that, we’re going to buy our sun cream and get ready for our hols! We hope your summer holiday is as special as our 30-day SIM-only bundles. Check them out here.
