Summer is coming! What are some apps you use to plan / book vacations?

I'm trying to get smarter about booking vacations: spending less time and money doing it, not doing too much research on the internet. Just want to do it quickly but still cheaply, and letting tech do the heavy lifting for me!

    That's a great service to find a perfect flight+hotel deal for your budget. You can choose a type of vacation you prefer (sea, exotics, sightseeing), then choose the dates and a budget you can afford. It will show the best deals, including special offers and sales. The best thing is this service is free to use :)

    Reveal hidden prices. They claim this - "We're better at finding cheap flights than anyone else— so good, United Airlines actually sued us for it". Skiplagged 2 [New version] They show hidden city ticketing trips in addition to what sites like Expedia, KAYAK, and Travelocity show. Taking a stop might save hundreds of dollar as @melaniepinola mentioned here - http://lifehacker.com/skiplagged... You can also track previous searches for changes in price. Available on iOS/Android.

  10. Though this app won't help you much with planning your trip in advance, it can be of great assistance if you are travelling, and, more specifically flying. You can track yours and others flight status in real-time, see constantly updated flight info (whether it's late or on time, etc.) get airport weather and schedule info, aircraft type and age, etc. The information this app provides is pretty accurate, its interface is simple and easy to use. Also, it's free.

    These beautiful photos give you a visual idea of the places you want to see. It's like a way more visual Foursquare, like a glance you also want to experience.
