When travelling for business, technology has become one of the most prominent tools in equipping travellers with the skills and knowledge to make their experience seamless. We have compiled a list of must-have apps for business travel to enhance your trip, making it easy and stress-free.

 

FCM Mobile - Serko

The FCM Mobile - Serko app is for FCM customers that use Serko Online for their travel bookings. This app allows you to book domestic and trans-Tasman flights and hotels, view your complete travel itinerary, select your seats, monitor real-time flight statuses and many more features to travel at ease with all your information at your fingertips.

 

Maps.Me

Maps.Me is essential to have on your phone when you travel. It is an offline maps app that requires no internet, no matter where you are in the world. Trusted by over 100 million travellers worldwide, Maps.me is fast and reliable and available worldwide.

The technology is currently available at 400+ Smart hotels such as Raddison Blue, Best Western and Swissôtel across parts of Europe with the plan to extend to USA and China in the next couple of years.

 

Air NZ app

The Air NZ app is a popular travel app amongst New Zealanders. It allows you to manage your flight and travel plans on the go and if you're a Koru member you can even pre-order your coffee.

 

Google translate

Google translate allows you to translate any language through speaking, writing, typing or even through your phone camera. This is perfect for reading menus and signs in other languages, an essential for your business travels.

 

ChargeNet NZ

ChargeNet NZ accesses New Zealand’s largest electric vehicle (EV) fast charging network. It allows you to view live station availability, start charging and monitor progress.

“Travel is no longer getting from A to B but an experience and these apps have improved my experience for the journey. From self-booking or last minute changes on the go within the parameters of my businesses policies, collecting coffee in the Koru lounge, to knowing where I can charge an EV away from home. Not to mention easily knowing the difference between a croque monsieur and madame when further a field - I highly recommend these experiences. And, I still have AI to improve my best travel experience.”
