Planning a trip, whether it is for business or pleasure, can be a fraught task. KAYAK Flight, Hotel Search enables you to take control of the entire process from the comfort of your iPhone or iPad.

The app can be used to search for and book flights, rental cars and hotels, and advanced search filters can be used to ensure that you home in on only what is most suitable. Bookings can be placed directly through the app, or you can click a link to be put through to an operator if you need to make any queries. When en route, the app can then be used to keep an eye on slight status as well as managing your trip itinerary.

You are not obliged to book through the app if you do not want to, you can use it for purely informational purposes. You can check the price and availability of seat on flights with a number of different airlines and book elsewhere if you desire.

There is also a paid for version of the app available which does not feature the advertisements found in the free version. The low price of the Pro version of KAYAK PRO Flights, Hotels, Flight Tracker means that it is well worth parting with a little cash to allow for uninterrupted use of such a handy tool.
