These travel ideas show how consumers can take advantage of tech to get a truly one of a kind experience, meet people with common interests, and benefit from streamlined services that make the whole process much easier.

As many consumers find the financial costs of travel to be a bit much to digest, there's apps like 'Mucky' to help them through their planning stages. The app works by allowing users to enter their spending costs on individual categories, such as transportation, accommodation, and entertainment. With this, those looking to plan a trip can get a better understanding of how much the endeavor will cost them, and what makes for a good deal.

Also included is the 'Irhal' app, which helps Muslim travelers to meet their specific needs in unfamiliar places, such as finding halal dining options, mosque locations, and prayer times. This enables Muslim travelers to feel more comfortable when they go abroad, and better allows them to connect with others who share the same faith.
