Corporate travel often means fitting in lots of meetings and events into a tight time schedule. When on business trips, we want efficient, organised and stress free transport options to ensure we meet our destination with speed and ease. After you have arranged your itinerary with your personal travel manager, who will help you to organise all of your transportation, there are several apps that can help to enhance your experience as you navigate your way around your new destination.
Moovit is a real-time public transport and GPS navigation app, and is great to have on hand if you decide to take some time off to explore your surroundings via public transport. It offers users up-to-date data on all transit modes across 350 cities worldwide. Users can access a live map and view nearby stops and stations based upon their current GPS location. The app offers trip planning, live arrivals, timetable and service alerts but most importantly allows you to choose the fastest, least crowded route to your destination.
If your personal travel manager has helped you to organise a hire car, then you may like to use the Parkopedia app. As the name suggests, this app is an encyclopedia of parking locations worldwide and provides access to your location through GPS, to direct you to your nearest space. Users can access parking availability and up to date information on car parking prices and payment methods, adding to the apps efficiency.
Alongside Parkopedia, Valet is an app that remembers where you park, so that you don’t have to. Through Bluetooth, Valet automatically sets your parking location and, if lost, can help to redirect you back to the location of your car. Plus, with a built in parking timer, it’s easy to keep track of your ticket time. It’s a great option if you are hiring a car in a new and unfamiliar destination.
When on the road for business, we can often get caught up in traffic. If you’re stuck in traffic and want to let people know that you are running late without texting, Glympse is a great option. Glympse is an app that enables specific people to share your location with via GPS. Enter the recipients before you set out, and they will be able to track your movements, location and to see how fast you are going via their OS device. For busy days on the road when you anticipate traffic, it’s a good app to consider.
