Traveling can be rough, frustrating and exhausting these days with packed flights, entitled passengers long customs lines and rising fares. Fortunately, Enterprises TV learns of some useful travel apps which aim to alleviate the most troublesome issues.
AirHelp – This is an app which connects travelers with a group of lawyers who help those whose flights were delayed or cancelled receive compensation for their misfortune. Their attorneys help travelers figure out what their rights are and go to court to fight for them. Most of the cases they’ve tried resulted in an average reward of $600 for the traveler.
Mobile Passport Control – U.S. Customs goes digital and makes international travel easier.
U.S. and Canadian citizens can
create a profile with their passport info. For each trip, they select their
flights, take a selfie and answer customs questions directly in the app. It
then spits out a QR coded receipt to present to the customs officer. While this
app only works in the airport now, it should be
available later around the country at major airports. Until then, international
passengers can sign up for the Global Entry program and whisk through this part
of travel. Atlanta,
