You can book flights, hotels and car hire from anywhere with these Skyscanner apps. They are multi-award winning apps and available to download free to all smartphone users.



Make Packing Easy and Forget Nothing!

Packpoint


Never forget anything you need for your holiday again when using Packpoint.

Packpoint is a tidy app for iPhone users which helps you pack for your trip, whether it’s business or leisure. The app asks you where and when you are going, how long you are going for and whether you are male or female. You can then specify a range of activities you are planning. For example, will you be travelling internationally, swimming, hiking or travelling with a baby, etc.

Packpoint checks the weather at the place and time of your trip, then calculates a custom packing list based on your answers to the above questions. From the list you can delete items you do not need and add ones the app has missed out and also change the quantity of some items.
