A major part of business travel is getting from place to place. Whether you are abroad or in the UK, there are multiple transportation options to choose from. A fantastic part of travelling is experiencing new forms of transportation, all while trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B on your itinerary. Sometimes it works out and other times you have to keep an open mind if you end up getting lost (it just might lead you to an unexpected discovery).
We've put together a few of our favourite Apps to help you get out of the Hotel room and explore.
