    An opportunity for us to share our favourite apps for planning long-haul travel. Here are a couple of mine (I have no affiliation other than as a user):

    FLIGHTS: Hipmunk – this handy app doesn’t just organise flights by price but also by “agony factor”, and displays the results on a time-graph so you can easily see how long a routing will take, how long any layover will be, which airlines are involved, etc. I have on a number of occasions found routings or airlines that I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. Incredibly useful where timing is important since you can easily see, straight away, which flight timings work best for you

    GENERAL: Rome2Rio – this incredible app is, to me like, Google Maps on steroids. Put in two city pairs, or addresses, or whatever, and it will show you an incredible array of different ways to get between them. Want to know if train is quicker than plane? Rome2Rio will show you. Seems to work worldwide

    What other recommendations do forum members have?

    TripIt does it all. Confirmations are sent to a single email address, and it builds the itinerary and spot any missing element (using Hipmunk btw). Delays and possible flight alternatives are also proposed, as well as seats alerts. It costs me USD 50 per year, but a free version is available.
