Imagine, you’re keen to get away for the weekend and your boss just approved two days off next week. Before you pack your things and hit the road without knowing where to go, you should make a few travel plans so you can focus on fun, not planning. Here are some tips on how to go about your travel plan.

Where are you going?

Take advantage of the power of the new smartphone and AI capabilities to pick your destination. You can browse choices and compare airline and accommodation amenities and prices. Browse through country and hotel options and choose something that suits your taste and budget.

Take advantage of technology like Google Lens to find the best vacation spot for you. Use Google Lens to generate details about interesting landmarks or tourist sites. You can also make use of Google Flights and Skyscanner to search for the best flight to your destination.

Skyscanner and Google Flights have voice assistant tools that you can easily activate by verbally addressing your questions to your smart speaker. You then get the best deal when it comes to tracking prices and seat choices. In fact, this is perfect even if you need a last-minute booking.

Plan your trip by using your AI equipped gadgets to find out where you are staying. You can ask your TV with AI features questions like “What is the most affordable hotel in Paris?” or “What is the forecast for London this weekend?” When you have decided where to go, then go ahead and begin practicing with Google Translate or the 37-language feature of Alexa translate skill from Amazon. Start practicing how to say “Good morning” in Russian if that’s where you’re headed.

Customize Your Trip

Google Maps can be a lifesaver when you’re traveling. You can download digital maps of your destination and use them offline to keep your phone bills low. This is very useful in capturing all the target hot vacation spots. This will help customize a digital trip itinerary that you can always share with those you’re going on a trip with.

With your smartphone, you can also maximize the benefits of its AI voice assistant if you want to discover a particular place to visit. Your phone’s Google Assistant can teach you which direction to take if you’re on your way to a new restaurant or it can even help you make a reservation.

Before you pack up and leave, get your phone to assist you by syncing it to all AI-powered devices in your home. In this way, you can remotely manage your devices like your thermostat or your security system at home. Your AI-powered devices can give you peace of mind by allowing you to monitor your chores remotely. Remember, use AI so that you can get total excitement and satisfaction from your trip.
