Technology has made a lot of things easier, one being travel. With just a click of a button, you can book a flight anywhere. Unfortunately, it stops there. Unlike old-school travel agencies, most of these sites will not act as personal concierges to make sure your trip is fully planned. These days, however, several third-party developers have recognized this need and have made planning easier with travel packages, tours, and activities. Now, all you need to worry about is choosing the right app. From activities to tours and even transportation, here are the best travel itinerary apps that will make your trips better.

1| GetYourGuide

This app gives you access to the best guided tours and must-see attractions while skipping the lines. Since GetYourGuide's headquarters are found in Germany, you can mainly count on it for things to do, attractions, and tours in Europe. That's not to say that it doesn't offer anything beyond Europe: Try booking desert safaris in Dubai, cruises and water tours in Santorini, or even snorkeling tours in Maui. If you're guilty of planning things at the last minute, you'll be pleased to know that one of its selling features is that you can book last-minute tickets.

Have you ever traveled to a place, only to find out while already there that your favorite artist is playing? Like a personal concierge service, Headout prides itself in getting those hard-to-get tickets for the best shows, concerts, activities, movies, and events in town. What's more, out of over 3,000 experiences, almost 100 of Headout's experiences allow you to earn your cash back. But, as in life, we can't have everything since Headout is only available in select cities, including New York, San Francisco, Dubai, Las Vegas, London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Venice, Budapest, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Sydney, and Abu Dhabi.

Made for Filipinos, Travelbook is the leading online travel service in the country. Aside from its selection of hotels and resorts, the platform also offers tour packages and attractions at a discount. The biggest benefit of this service, other than the fact that you'll end up saving money, is the fact you don't have to waste your precious time lining up. As a bonus, Travelbook allows you to book spas and salons as well as restaurants. It's also tied to Philippine Airlines where members can earn miles each time they book promo-eligible bookings.
