It’s that time of year, when everyone wants to escape the heat and head out for an adventure, but it’s also that time when you worry about getting ready for the trip. Be prepared for your journey with a little forward planning; these five great apps are designed to help take the pressure off both before and during your holiday:
1. AirWayBill- With AirWayBill, you choose (or buy) and carry items with you on your flight and get paid for it. All it takes is for you to download the app, secure some space in your baggage, and voila: extra money! If you’re planning on flying somewhere but running a bit low on cash, check out their packing tips here and make sure you use the free space that will turn up to earn some extra cash.
2. ServiceMarket – if you don’t have the time or the energy to make sure your apartment is ready before you go, ServiceMarket is the app that’ll do it for you! If you need scheduled maintenance, deep cleaning while away, and other similar services, then this app is the gift that keeps giving.
3. Washmen – No matter what one does, laundry remains one of the most tiring chores. But, don’t fret! Getting your laundry done and ready before you go on vacation, or even during, with the app’s “leave at door” option, makes laundry a breeze.
4. Careem– When traveling to an unfamiliar place, be it abroad or in your own country (admit it, even we can be tourists in our own country) and you don’t know which way to go, having the trusty Careem app facilitate your commutes is priceless. Use the “Ride Later” feature and have a driver pick up and drop you off at the airport at the scheduled time (or even be waiting for you once you’ve landed!) #LikeaBoss.
5. Your banking app – Well, of course, how could you survive without money? While you may be somewhere with a different time zone or language, you can still have access to your bank! Just make sure your app is up to date, and bank while you’re away.
Using apps to organise your life has become an easy way to get several tasks done at the touch of the button or a swipe on a screen. With apps like these, it’s guaranteed: you can make the best out of your hard-earned time off, and even make some money on the side for your next adventure.
