Smartphone Apps for Smoother Business Travel
What good is your smartphone if it can’t help your business travel experience be smoother and less stressful? Here are some essential apps for executive travelers.
Visiting a New City?
If you want a 24/7 window into what’s happening in your destination city, load MyCityWay onto your iPhone or Android smartphone. Its city guides help you discover and explore everything from nearby restaurants, shops, spas, and nightlife, along with helpful but oft-overlooked locations such as WiFi hotspots, ATMs and even bathrooms.
The MyCityWay dashboard is customizable and can display local weather, news, parking and directions, and live traffic camera feeds.
Need to make a dinner reservation or look up a show time? MyCityWay has you covered in 110 cities around the world.
The Chauffeur in Your Pocket
Renting a car or hailing a taxi in a new city may seem like simple things to do, but when you’re a business traveler with a busy schedule that requires punctuality, these options won’t get the job done. Corporate car service is the way to go, because not only can you count on a punctual, well-cleaned and comfortable car, you also have a friendly and knowledgeable chauffeur at your service, ready to help you with whatever you may need.
Instead of pulling up Uber and dealing with unvetted, unreliable drivers and surge pricing at peak travel times, download the free DPV Transportation app for iPhone or Android and enjoy the experience of riding with premier Luxury transportation specialists.

Any device, any location and any time. Available for iOS, Android and Windows 8.
Pre-Meeting Homework Made Easy
