Top travel apps for booking travel

Many travelers use Kayak as their go-to travel app. A clean interface makes it easy to search for hotels, flights and car rentals, showing the lowest price available through other travel sites. Kayak also throws in a few bonuses, such as real-time flight tracking and more than 100 airport terminal maps. Orbitz is another popular travel app that's highly rated for its simplicity and speed. Users say they can book a flight in three minutes and find deals on hotels and cars to boot. TripAdvisor's app offers the same services, plus millions of travelers' reviews.
