Traveling this Holiday season?  Why not use some free apps to make that ride go smoother?

If you are traveling by plane having some knowledge about the layout and amenities of the airport can help make that travel go a lot smoother. Try the GateGuru app which is free on both Apple and Google Play. This app has maps of each airports terminals and restaurants available. So--basically you won’t get lost in the airport with this app. Plus you can track your flight information within the app. Check the tips section for additional information like security check point delays within the airport.

Finding Wi-Fi can be a challenge in a new place. Try Wi-Fi Finder by JiWire to help you find the nearest free hot spots. You can search by simply enabling the Wi-Fi scanner to find your Internet access. It is available in both Apple and Google Play store.

If you are planning on traveling by car let an app find the best gas prices near you. That app is called Gas Buddy and it is free. All you have to do is open the app and a list of gas stations near you with the best prices will pop up, making that road trip easier on your wallet.
