Google Flights allows to search for train connections and suggests when travel by train is a good alternative to air travel for your destinations. You can search train connections for 56 destinations and nearly 400 routes across Germany and Northern Europe. See More
Hipmunk provides a clean interface that's dense with visually well-presented information, not plastered with advertising. It uses a smart algorithm that automatically hides unwanted results, and ranks the rest by how much or little agony it will cause you. "Agony" is best explained by the sites co-founder Adam Goldstein: A combined function of price, duration, and number of stops – basically the total agony you’ll experience in your butt and your savings. This results in an experience that won't overwhelm you with pages of options to dig through to find the best option. Hipmunk uses a timeline to visually show the differences between search results, and provides sliders to help narrow down results to just the ones that fit your schedule. You can sort the flights by a price, duration, and airline, but the default ranking of "agony" is by far the superior option for finding the best flight. See More
Supplementing the simple default interface are a variety of features to help you organise more complex trips, up to a 6-stop multi-city flight. When searching for flights you can also easily add a flexible range of suitable dates instead of having to search multiple times. See More
Needless to say that these features will give you better and more up to date feedback when you're online, but you can still use it on offline mode. You can think about alternative routes or which public transport would be best for you to use, so you'll always have choices. See More
Another good thing about this app is that you can download a map of an entire country of just a specific region, such as a province or state. So if you won't be needing a complete map, this will save you a lot of storage space. But you should check the file size when you're planning to download several regions because you may end up with a bigger file compared to just downloading the map of the entire country. See More
It has a very convenient turn by turn voice guidance so you can keep your hands on the wheel and be stress-free while you're driving. If you just plan on walking or commuting, then you'll be able to know every step or transfer that you need to take and when. See More
