Kayak for the best deals

There is no shortage of sites for comparing hotels and flights. It's impossible not to stumble across them with every step you take online. However, the Kayak app is worth checking out. It makes it easy to book a hotel, car or flight at the best price. The app also tells you the maximum weight your baggage can be, and how much extra you'll pay if it's crept past the limit ... 

Here Maps shows you the way

Did your hire car come without GPS? You won't be wandering around lost in the middle of the city. Here Maps helps you drive, bike and walk to your destination without paying a cent in extra data costs. Download the maps for your vacation region in advance. Then, even if you're offline, you'll quickly find your way when you're away.
