Airhelp

Lost luggage? Delayed flight? Airhelp is here to—help! EC 261 is the European Union law concerning air passenger rights. These rights support travelers for some sort of compensation if they face flight disruptions caused by airlines, including flight delays and cancellations, missed connections and lost luggage. If you face one of these issues, submit your details to Airhelp and it will check to see if the airline owes you money.

iPhone and Android

Dayuse

Have you ever been in a city looking for a place to work but Starbucks is crowded and Panera Bread is too noisy? That’s where Dayuse comes to the rescue. This app lets you book a hotel room for a day or for a few hours. Pick the city you’ll be traveling to and date and you’ll get a list of luxury and boutique hotels to choose from. And don’t worry if you decide to cancel. You won’t be charged until you check in.

iPhone and Android 

Duolingo

If you do a lot of international travel or have international clients, download Duolingo to become a master at a new language. The language-learning tool has multiple lessons and games you can play to learn how to say “hello,” “goodbye” and “can’t wait for the next meeting” in 23 languages. Lessons include a variety of speaking, listening, translating and multiple-choice challenges. So while you’re waiting for your plane to depart, brush up on the native language and impress your client when you see them.

iPhone, Android, Windows

LoungeBuddy

Instead of waiting at the airport gate for your flight to board, sit back and relax at one of the airport lounges. Usually, the lounges are reserved for the members, but with LoungeBuddy, you can purchase access to premium lounges at a click of a button. Browse from 100 airports—national and internationally—and have access to the all-inclusive amenities. Book the lounge the day of travel or up to two months in advance.

iPhone

RunGo

Staying fit can be challenging when you’re constantly traveling, but RunGo makes it easy to stay active in between meetings, with different routes and trails you can discover from your hotel. The hotels create their own safe running program for guests to explore the area like locals, and the routes are powered by voice navigation. This app is available in nine languages and can be used offline.

iPhone, Android, Apple Watch

SitOrSquat

No one likes using a public restroom. Is there toilet paper? Will there be soap? But with Charmin’s SitOrSquat, you no longer have to ponder if a restroom is clean, the app will tell you. The app shows you where clean public restrooms are in your area. Squeaky-clean bathrooms have a green “sit” rating while less than clean bathrooms have a red “squat” rating.
