Travel the eco-friendly way with GlampingHub

Summer travel planning apps

With over 20k sites available internationally, GlampingHub allows you to book your next nature-bound experience in a few taps. It is the AirBNB of eco-lodging. What I like about this site is the wide range of lodging you can select from: everything from rustic cabins to treehouse and domes. There’s something for everyone and at all price points – including your own private island! Filter and explore choices by proximity to a national park, pet-friendliness and other filters. Fees tend to be lower than many of the big competitors, as well.

One iOS reviewer writes:

The variety of accommodations is pretty amazing from tents to cabins to tiny houses and everything in between in both popular and offbeat locations around the globe”

Timeshifter, the jetlag-easing app

While hopping timezones, jet lag can be an added challenge in getting you out the door. That’s where the Timeshifter app can help. The app has used over 129k surveys and found that travelers who followed the Timeshifter advice were 14x less likely to report very severe jet lag compared to travelers who didn’t follow the advice.

Timeshifter uniquely combines the only elements shown to reset the circadian clock (light-dark exposure and melatonin supplements)and helps suggests when you should see light and dark across your journey and at the destination point.

Timeshifter tells you exactly what to do and when to do it. You simply need to bring a sleep mask, dark sunglasses and melatonin (if that’s your thing). This app is so good shift workers and astronauts love using it.
