Spring in to airport travel with the tripchi airport app!
Yay, Spring – the Vernal equinox has officially arrived, which has hopefully spurred some wanderlust and restlessness for your inner travelphile via the tripchi airport app.The tripchi airport app is of course is there for you while you’re killing time at the airport with the tripchi airport app.We wanted to highlight two pretty nifty apps you can use in planning your travel – the first is Hopper’s recent app foray called GTFO (Get the flight out) – also called Flight Tonight. Get it on iPhone here. We’ve been trying it out lately, but have mixed feelings since the flights it offers tend are fairly expensive.The second is a money saving flight app we discovered after catching up with one of the founders, Eric Lanier, here in Denver. The app is called FareScout, and it helps give you an accurate picture of how much a given flight (route) costs based on historical data averaging. Then, it tells you whether now is a good time to buy your flight. FareScout can also send you notifications so that you’re in the know if the flight price is expected to increase or decrease. Get FareScout on iPhone here.
Of course, we recommend using both of these apps in tandem with the tripchi airport app, which will show you how to make the most of your time at the airport. We’ll tell you your dining and shopping options, as well #layovertips, such as airport art and other lesser known airport hacks and adventures.
