No one knows the importance of a good phone app better than the business traveler. These road warriors cross the skies and burn up the roads bringing in business and keeping customers happy throughout the year. Considering the number of miles that they cover on a given day, week, month or year, it’s easy to understand why a good app can truly make the difference between a trip that runs smoothly and one that leaves you feeling that you’ll never catch up.

The problem though is which app to choose. A mere six months ago, Android boasted 1.3 million apps in its app store and Apple had slightly fewer with 1.2 million apps. One thing that the business traveler does not have is an abundance of time for trial and error so we’ve ranked our top apps for business travel. Our favorite is the Overland Chauffeured Services app that allows you to hire for services and manage accounts. It’s available for: Google Play and Apple.

Features of the Overland Chauffeured Services app

  • Maintain frequently traveled locations
  • Receive a rate quote
  • Book or change a reservation
  • View current, completed and future reservations
  • See chauffeur location up to 60 minutes prior to pick-up time
